João Terra or simply ‘Jao’, as people call him, was born in Brazil and moved to Liverpool just over two years ago. His soulful voice and unique guitar playing have been standing out in the Liverpool music scene since day one. With a number of musical inspirations, including Jimi Hendrix, SRV, John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., Oasis, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Rolling Stones, Foy Vance, Nick Drake and many more, he says: “It’s hard to talk about influences; each and every single one of them are particularly special.” João draws the lines of Blues, Soul, Rock and Folk comfortably, which makes it easy for people to relate to his music when he plays. “Music is not about the perfect pitch or fancy techniques; it’s about touching people’s hearts,” he adds. João’s music is available on all major platforms, including his most recent release, ‘Man With No Shadow’, and he is currently in studio cooking up some new tunes. Keep your eyes peeled!
