Singer/songwriter Renato Baccarat is native from São Paulo where he spent the early musical years of his life. At age nine his family settles in Europe following the endless tours of Renato’s father, Brazilian trumpet player Gildo Ilhosa. It was from there onwards that Renato grew strongly connected to the Brazilian culture, with an ocean of possibilities separating them. This results in a bittersweet mix of musical ingredients: a solar sound tinged with influences from Tom Zé, Jeff Buckley, Rodrigo Amarante to the Pixies...
He founded the band UTZ and they recorded together two albums: "Todo Mundo é Feio" and "MINIATURA!".

Today he's preparing the first album in his own name.

Lyrics

Tudo Parado

Pronto,
Esta tudo parado...
Parou como se tudo tivesse
gelado mas no calor.
Como se tudo tivesse
desligado mas sem parar.
Como se tudo tivesse
decidido de ir tão devagar...
tão devagar...
tão devagar...
tão devagar...
Só sobrou a gente...
Só sobrou a gente...
