This Brazilian vocalist/songwriter accomplishes the arduous task of mixing emotions musically.

Fernando first made a favorable impression on the New England music scene in the 90's as the vocalist with the popular quintet Gandaya, which created “Brazilian music with a great deal of heart and soul, and not afraid to take a chance or two,” — Jeff Turton, WFNX-Radio, and appeared at the Boston-area's premier jazz rooms Scullers, Regattabar and The Acton Jazz Cafe as well as at the Hartford Jazz Festival. On his release Minh’ Alma Nua (My Nude Soul), Fernando Holz sings and orchestrates original Brazilian pop-jazz music that makes the listener feel that he or she is being spoken to personally. Fernando melds happiness and sadness in superior material with an uncommon ease. Poetry is achieved through his sensitive and careful employment of mood, tempo, melody, and harmony. Never stilted or weak in sentiment, the music makes connections with that of the master, Tom Jobim.
