In 2010, much was spoken about the new “music scene in São Paulo” with young talents baptized as “representatives of the new folk” or “indie pop”. In this creative crop is Thiago Phetit, who launched in the same year his debut album Berlin, Texas, where he sings and plays the piano accompanied by delicate notes of the accordion, cello, flute, clarinet, guitar, ukelele, drums and percussion. In October, it was he who opened the show by French duo Air, in Buenos Aires. He returned to the Argentinian capital in March this year for the Musicas Del Sur festival. His lyrics are simple and melancholic, and treat human relations with care and emotion.
Still on the international issue, Thiago told he was selected for the South by Southwest festival 2011 (TX, USA), but failed to board. “I did not receive approval in time for my visa in the United States. Being a soloist who works with hired musicians and therefore require a lot of my investment, I learned that it is necessary to organize and have a local production on which to rely, in terms of structure and distribution”, he explains. But his international agenda remains high: next month he travels to Lisbon, Portugal. “I present in an event called “Avenida Paulista”, in October 14, in São Luiz theater. Will be a parallel night from Sintra Misty Festival, organized by the same producers”, he says. This time he has an invitation from a good local production, that´s providing everything, from the basics, such as lodging and meals to the disclosure of interviews. If all goes well, “Berlin, Texas” will be released in Portugal. We hope so!
