Influences: Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley, Ennio Moriconne, Yiruma, Russell Watson, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Pavarotti, Cole Porter, Fred Astaire
Over the last two years I have produced my own shows:
A Show of Three Halves (Sept 2015)
João Alves and Friends (Sept 2016)
Both productions were performed at the Baltazar Dias Grand Theatre in the capital Funchal on Madeira Island, Portugal.
Since studying in England and my graduation in Music from the University of Wolverhampton in September 2016 I have been working as a Pianist/Singer/Bar entertainer at “Scat Bar“ Jazz Restaurant. I have also been a leading pianist at “Restaurante Galo D`Ouro” in the Cliff Bay Hotel on the New Year’s Eve.
As a musician I am very ambitious to sing and play piano in live concerts, recitals and solo performances, as part of an orchestra or in a musical. My devotion to music is strong and sincere and I am very eager to develop my skills by learning and training in the area that I am so passionate about.
If I were fortunate enough to be accepted in a job, I would bring dedication, hard work and the will to succeed and overcome any challenges I may face. I am fully committed to working towards a great future in doing what I love most – working in the Performing Arts.
My first goal is to be heard and I would like to invite you into my world through Youtube, Instagram, Facebook and my Website where you can find my own original compositions, two romantic musical comedies I wrote and produced in the last two years, some classical singing (including Ennio Moriconne - Cinema Paradiso - Nessun Dorma) and in complete contrast some Elvis Rock and Roll! There will also be some jazz and comic acting parts to be posted in the near future on the pages below.
Music has always been my passion and as opportunities to participate in shows and concerts were coming up, my enthusiasm for music grew and today I feel, for sure, that this is the path I want for my life.
I know the path ahead will be long but I know if I get an opportunity to work with you that I would make the effort for what is yet to come because my goal as a musician is to develop my skills as much as possible so that I can offer to the audience the best I can give.
I am available to travel where there are work opportunities.
