About Marcos Valle

Marcos Valle is the Renaissance man of Brazilian pop, a singer, songwriter, and producer who has straddled the country's music world from the early days of the bossa nova craze well into the fusion-soaked sound of '80s MPB and on into the 21st century. Early on, Valle wrote several songs that were hits for other bossa nova artists ("So Nice," "Batucada," "Crickets Sing for Anamaria"). Moving to the U.S. in 1975, he contributed his arranging skills to performers as varied as Chicago and Eumir Deodato, and continued to release solo albums, even branching into film and TV music. In the 2010s, Valle established relationships with labels like Far Out and Light in the Attic, issuing several acclaimed new albums and reissuing much of his earlier catalog.
