Music arrives on digital platforms this Friday, December 23, Christmas Eve
Born in the greater Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, singer Thomazz has always had contact with art, and especially with music. The passion surfaced a little more in adolescence, where he was part of musical groups at church and attended singing and theater classes, where he participated in a short film.
Despite the enormous passion for music, the need to have a greater instability faster made him follow other paths for a period and take public tenders, thus joining the Brazilian Navy, after spending a few years in service he noticed the need to give music a chance and decided to ask a friend (Matheus Belkzor) for help, his current music producer, so he joined the Independent label MBREC, thus reaching his first release “Essa Noite” which features a mix of musical styles, afro, pop and R&B where the artist identifies and intends to explore further.
The lyrics, with a sensual and very danceable touch, tell a story of two people who become a couple, praising and framing the woman as reported in the clip, it is a great bet as a first release. Check out the interview!
“Essa Noite” has an afro, pop, R&B style and of course a very sensual feel. Can we expect the next singles to have this style?
Trying to continue exploring POP, R&B, AFRO, FUNK and keeping constant releases until reaching bigger goals. I have a big dream of doing shows, I dream every day of being able to actually have a show of my own, with my ideas, ballet, production and I hope to do it soon with a lot of work.
New to the music industry, what motivated you to pursue R&B, Pop and Afro? What are your inspirations?
As a Brazilian artist I have countless references, I believe that Brazil is very rich in musical quality and I intend to explore a little of everything, but on the other hand I consume a lot of international music and I have Chris Brown as a great reference for a show.
Producer Matheus Belkzor was a great help to join the Independent label MBREC. From the idea to the completion of the project, how does it feel to work with Matheus Belkzor?
The whole process was incredible, Matheus is an excellent professional and we are very good friends and this ends up reflecting in the construction of everything. We were able to see what is most comfortable for me and reach a final consensus.
A feature of your music that is also very present in the rap scene is the praise of women. What was the differential of your approach to those already in music?
The central idea was not to place the woman as submissive but in a prominent position, showing that this can also happen in certain situations. The black woman in Brazil suffers social exclusion on a daily basis, in the clip we decided to place her as someone independent and self-assured, a scene in the clip that demonstrates exactly that.
About to be released this Friday, the 23rd, the music video was recorded in Vidigal, in Rio de Janeiro. Regarding the experience of this production, could you talk a little more about the backstage of the video and what are your expectations for the public to receive your music?
The day of the recording was very special, as I was able to count on the presence of some friends, it made me feel more secure and happy to be sharing this moment with them. There was a moment when it rained a lot on set and I thought I wouldn’t be able to complete it, but the whole time nobody let their energy drop until the goal was achieved. My expectations are the best possible, I hope people have fun and can hear my sound wherever they are, dance with their friends, family, and feel the same energy and positive vibe that I feel every time I hear this chorus.
Before starting your music career, you tried several things, including competitions for the Brazilian Navy, among others. How did music come into your life and from what moment did you manage to see it as something that could be your profession?
I believe that since the first contacts with music in the church and in the music projects that I was part of, my career has already started and this construction made me reach Thomazz today so that I can show people my work and dreams within music.
In the current situation that our country is experiencing, mainly in terms of encouraging culture among other projects, do you really believe that it is possible to live only from music?
I believe it is a very difficult and painful process, because within music there is also a lack of opportunities and generally the doors do not open so easily for beginner artists. But with hard work, study and constancy it is possible. I see living on music as a house under construction, every day they have to do maintenance and put a little more brick until it gets a little more comfortable.
What are your plans and next steps for the year 2023?
I still want to evolve a lot, study and learn to become the Thomazz that I have in my thoughts. I hope to reach the desired audience and continue working to reach bigger goals. Our planning is to maintain consistency in launches and reap the results of this, there are many good things to come!
