“Despite all of the many styles and genres of music, I see the music mainly in two ways: the ones that touch me and the ones that don’t.” says Antonio Resende, the singing, writing, musician, who has just joined the PLG Music UK division, for a publishing deal.
The first record he remembers listening to was a Beatles song, when he was about 6 years old. This is when he fell in love with music, over the years he has opened his mind and ears to many forms of music, styles like Country, Rock, Pop, Brazilian Music, World Music and Jazz.
Of his many music influences, the ones he loves the most are; Pat Metheny, The Beatles, Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim and many of the Classical greats. Antonio wants to write songs that convey a positive message. Antonio was inspired by the music he used to play at a local church in his homeland Belo Horizonte, Brazil. His personal compositions are often spiritual, but not necessarily religious.
Antonio produce’s and composes in a multiple genre of styles, he currently plays guitar in a Brazilian Jazz trio. His only goal is to continue to compose, play and record.
