“It was Tiago’s voice that first drew me in. I had only heard a few songs from his debut album but there was a fragility and honesty in his voice that I connected with. I intentionally didn’t study that album too much once I knew we were going to work together because I didn’t want to feel I had rules about what genre to keep him in, or what production constraints we had to adhere to based on that first effort. I could sense there was immense potential in Tiago and his band, but I wanted to move them away from that clean, careful sound and see the music evolve towards something darker, grittier and more complex, which I felt would make his unusual voice stand out even that much more. Tiago is both a classic and a contemporary soul — combining the best of singers like Nick Drake and bands like Radiohead. I hope people can enjoy getting as caught up in the mastery of his lyrics and his beautiful, textural voice as I have”. — Andy Chase
Tiago’s family moved to Cambridge, England, when he was just 10 months old, and Britain became his home for the first years of his life. He was 8 – and already back to his native country – when he touched the acoustic guitar for the first time. He learned the basics to the instrument having lessons with the mother of a neighbor of his who, in exchange, had English lessons with Tiago’s mother. Despite having no musical background in his family, Tiago showed increasing interest towards music. At age 10, while living in the States – Raleigh, NC – his father agreed on giving him his first acoustic guitar.
