Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, vocalist Daniela Soledade grew up in a family of musicians with a direct line to the origins of Bossa Nova. Daniela’s grandfather was Paulo Soledade, who composed songs with legendary Brazilian artists Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Toquinho and Baden Powell. Her father, Paulinho Soledade is an artist and producer who learned guitar from Baden Powell himself and has worked with legends Ivan Lins and Gilberto Gil among others. Daniela settled in the United States in 2003 and maintains a busy performing schedule. Her debut album, "A Moment Of You" was released in the autumn of 2019 to great critical acclaim and the accompanying North American tour took her to notable venues including the legendary Blue Note in New York City.
Nate Najar is an American guitarist, composer and producer. The critics and cognoscenti agree: jazz guitarist Nate Najar’s virtuosity exudes a dynamic and truly intoxicating elegance. His artistry evokes a modern and progressive attitude that perpetuates the legacy of the great Charlie Byrd. But while Najar’s imaginative playing is steeped in Byrd’s tradition it nevertheless emulates a collection of other artistic musical influences, including classical, bebop, fusion, bossa nova and even post modern, which have all culminated to inspire a player whose sophisticated and often innovative artistry has placed him in many of the world’s most prestigious music venues and produced many superb recordings.
