Next January will be 35 years since Miguel Angelo steped into a recording studio for the first time. Delfins had just started and since then his life has been strictly linked to recordings and live performances, to the writing and interpretation of songs that marked the History of Portuguese Music.
It’s always good to celebrate a 35 year’s career, even more if to the successes of always joines new adventures, because in these cases the right thing to do is to continue and not rest in the shadow of the obtained laurels.
2019 will bring a new album, new songs and unusual collaborations, even because many things have changed since that distant day when that studio opened it’s doors to receive some new kids, full of ideas and energy. Many things have changed, in the way you make a record, communicate, drive a career, but ideas and the energy remains.
Few are the national artists who manage to bring together in their live shows a transversal and numerous public, composed by several generations. Miguel Angelo is certainly one of them and 2019 will take care, once again, to prove it.
Two years after the farewell tour of his successful band, Delfins, Miguel Angelo started his solo career in 2012, with the album “Primeiro”, which included the hit single “Precioso”.
On April 3rd 2014 Miguel Angelo released an iPhone app, which gives exclusive player access to his news single “MUSA”. This was the first single of his new álbum “Segundo”. The second single, “ANDA LÁ” was out last September. In the same year, Miguel Angelo celebrates his 30-year career, since the first single of Delfins (released in 1984), with an amazing show on Baía de Cascais with an audience of 30K and handful of guests on stage.
2015 started with a surprise duet of “O Vento Mudou”, a recreation which included the voice and presence of Eduardo Nascimento – the original interpreter himself. Segundo was released on April 3rd, in the digital market, and the 19th of the same month in vinyl, celebrating the 2015 Record Store Day.
On 2017 Miguel returns to his solo career with “A CANÇÃO” and in January 2017 releases surprise EP “GROTESCO” digital and vinyl. It has been 34-years since the beginning, but many of the songs are still in the minds of everyone.
