Biography

Brazilian singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, writer, publisher, television host and media personality, popularly known as Lobão ("Big Wolf"). He is perhaps best known for his hit songs "Me Chama" ("Call Me") and "Vida Louca Vida" ("Life, Crazy Life") as well as seminal works Vida Bandida and A Vida É Doce.

Aside from his musical works, Lobão acquired a reputation for having little inhibition in expressing his opinions, as well as bluntly and publicly criticising fellow musicians, which led to a notable number of controversies and enmities. His most recent controversy was a break-up with the record industry; claiming that all major labels are conspiring to deceive their own artists (by underreporting sales and using piracy as a scapegoat), he set an independent distribution plan to sell music CDs on newsstands and through the internet. Thus far, this endeavor has been very successful: his recent albums sold well and were critically acclaimed

Lobão also created a magazine, Outracoisa (literally somethingelse or anotherthing), which comes bundled with a music CD of independent artists.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him on Twitter: "meu ascendente é Sagitário,lua em touro e Galo de fogo no horóscopo chinês...lindo não?já fui bom nisso.." (Translation: "My ascendant is Sagittarius, Moon in Taurus and fire rooster in the Chinese horoscope ... beautiful huh? ") [1]. A speculative time of 9am gives this combination.
