Érico Moreira comes from a family of musicians and artists and entered the world of music at an early age. At the age of 10, he was already accompanying his father, also a musician and composer from Paraty-RJ. At the age of 12, she moved to São Paulo, where she began working as an assistant in the studio of renowned producer Xuxa Levy. Later, at the age of 17, he devoted himself mainly to producing soundtracks for advertising, television and cinema, as well as working as a sound technician.
At the age of 24, he recorded his first album entitled “Pindorama”, where he played almost all the instruments and was responsible for recording and mixing the album. In 2007, he moved to Barcelona, where he soon teamed up with Barcelona singer Sara Pi to create a project that would last 11 years, producing 3 albums, only 2 of which were released by Sony Spain. In 2021, with a repertoire of more than 100 original songs, he returns to his solo project and releases “Dentro da Matrix”, the first single from what will be his second album.
You can be a musician, songwriter, performer, producer, arranger, mixer and master, or take on other roles. However, rare are the cases of artists who manage to bring all these skills together, as is the case with the multifaceted Érico Moreira, who took on all these responsibilities for the release of his latest album, “Dentro da Matrix”. It’s no wonder that this album, produced entirely independently, was nominated for a Latin Grammy in this year’s edition.
Produced, composed and mixed by Érico, the album competed for the award for Best Engineered Recording Album. Also competing in the same category were those responsible for the acclaimed releases by Liniker (Zé Nigro and Gustavo Ruiz) and Antonio Adolfo (Marcelo Saboia), as well as the influential pop star Rosalía (Manny Marroquin / Chris Gehringer). Despite not winning the award, Érico feels honoured to have been nominated, especially for being alongside such big and important names.
