Description

Popular in Brazil, but almost unknown here, Jorge Vercilo has a voice that inevitably draws comparisons to Djavan. In fact, on
their infectious duet ‘Final Feliz,’ (Happy Ending) you’d have to listen carefully to distinguish between the two voices.

For American audiences unfamiliar with the Brazilian music scene, a better parallel may be someone like John Mayer, whom Vercilo actually resembles. Much like Mayer’s, the audiences at Vercilo’s concerts are primarily young women, who swoon over his boyish good looks and sway to his sensitive singing.

But don’t focus on the superficial; you’ll miss out on most of what makes Jorge Vercilo so appealing. Winner of several international songwriting contests during the early part of his career, Vercilo is a composer first and foremost. His songs have been covered by Danilo Caymmi, Patrícia Marx and Fábio Jr.

And how about this? Vercillo’s latest album ‘ Como Diria Blavatsky’ refers to Russian pholosopher Helena Blavatsy,who popularized the notion of ‘theosophy’, which blends philosophy, religion and science – which would be an odd inspiration for any othe Brazilian pop star besides Vercillo.
