Paulo Gonzo's almost 40-year career makes him an icon of Portuguese music, not only for an entire generation that grew up listening to him but also for a new wave of fans and artists who are inspired by him and listen with admiration.


In 1980, “White Noise” was released, which included the single “Touch Me Now”, selling more than 50,000 copies.


The year 1986 was a milestone in the career of Paulo Gonzo, who recorded his debut album “My Desire” but it was in 1992 that Paulo Gonzo released his first album in Portuguese, “Pedras da Calçada”. It distinguished itself in terms of popularity through its distinctive melody and sensuality: “Jardins Proibidos”.


The album that followed was “Fora D'Horas”. Launched in 1995.

However, it was the album “Quase Tudo” (1997) that proved to be Paulo Gonzo's biggest success to date, reaching 6x platinum and further solidifying the musician's name and career in Portugal.

Paulo Gonzo's next project, “Suspeito” (1998), was produced by Frank Darcel.


In 1999, Paulo Gonzo released “Live Unplugged”, a live album that portrays his career since his first solo single.

In 2007, Paulo Gonzo joins the prestigious 'Profile' series, in which some of the biggest names in current Pop music have already been published, such as Adriana Calcanhotto or Tom Jobim.


Edited in 2010, “By Request” recovers some of the best themes from the American Songbook. Great hits like “Midnight hour”, “Love Man” or “These arms of mine”, are part of this fabulous record sung in English and recorded in New York with the production of the duo Cindy Blackman/Jack Daley.


In November 2011, Paulo Gonzo released the original album “Só a Paris Gestos”, with the special participation of Tito a Paris Gestos Jóia and Miguel Sousa Tavares, the latter as the lyricist for the theme “Vem”.


The following year (2012), Paulo Gonzo celebrated 35 years of career with two sold-out concerts in Porto and Coliseus with very special guests such as Jorge Palma, Rui Reininho, Lúcia Moniz, Zé Pedro and Tito Paris.

A 25 de Março de 2013 foi lançada a edição especial de “Só Gestos” de_cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Paulo Gonzo, which includes the theme “Vencer Ao Amor” in a duet with the Spanish singer-sensation India Martínez.


In Paulo Gonzo's musical journey, there was always room for unexpected collaborations and long-awaited encounters. These complicities gave rise to “Duetos”, an album that reached double platinum, having spent several consecutive months at the national top of sales. In “Duetos” we find the true diaspora – geographic, cultural, aesthetic, full of encounters and sharing. From Ana Carolina, Anselmo Ralph, Jorge Palma, Mario Biondi and India Martinez, to Matias Damásio, Carlos Rivera, Fafá de Belém, Tito Paris, Tammy Payne, Rui Reininho and Bernardo Sassetti.


In 2014, Paulo Gonzo took the album Duetos to the stages of the MEO Arena (Lisbon) and Pavilhão Multiusos (Guimarães), on the 14th and 15th of November. The show featured luxury guests: Ana Carolina, Anselmo Ralph, Jorge Palma, Matias Damásio, Rui Reininho and Fafá de Belém.

Thanks to a voice of unique characteristics, outstanding songs and a strong personality, Paulo Gonzo is an artist who manages to appeal to both female and male audiences, also covering different age groups.
