About Michael Lahue


Born in New Jersey, Michael Anthony is a singer, pianist, violist, composer and lyricist now living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He fell in love with Brazil during the 1996 Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), while he was studying at the University of Music and Dramatic Art in Graz (Austria). Later, came his enchantment with Bossa Nova in the recordings of Astrud Gilberto as well as veneration for the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim. He was seduced by Brazilian Popular Music (MPB), a celebration of simplicity, subtlety and purity; the voice of the soul, as he himself defines it. As a musician, composer and lyricist he rendered himself to the charms of Brazil. This whole love affair with Brazilian music resulted in his first album, “Sonho” (“Dream”). With placid songs, beautiful arrangements and a voice always in tune, this young American has touched the hearts of Brazilians becoming part of the new MPB generation.
