He began teaching himself guitar and piano at age 7 and later attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston, studying with legendary teachers Mick Goodrick and Hal Crook and winning several academic/ musical prizes there during his studies. Not only an exceptional guitarist with a wonderful sound and great fluidity, Chico Pinheiro is a unique composer of originality and maturity, qualities that stand out on his solo recordings. His first album Meia Noite Meio Dia (Sony Music) was released in 2003 with great reviews at all the most important newspapers and music magazines in Brazil and abroad, and was included in the 'Top 10 Brazilian albums of the year' in the major newspapers of Brazil: 'O Estado de São Paulo', 'A Folha de São Paulo' and 'O Globo'.

This well-received debut included performances from special guest vocalists Luciana Alves, Lenine, Ed Motta, Chico César and Maria Rita.

Today Chico is already a remarkable presence in - and outside the Brazilian music scene, who has distinguished himself as a guitarist, composer and arranger. He's performed and recorded with Brad Mehldau, Rosa Passos, Chico César, Dori, Danilo Caymmi, João Donato, Marcos Silva and Mary Fettig among others. He cites a number of influences: Miles Davis, Chopin, John Coltrane, Jackson do Pandeiro, Tom Jobim and João Gilberto. About Chico Pinheiro latest album There's a Storm Inside: Throughout, Pinheiro's charms as a guitarist, composer and vocalist are hard to resist. Imagine a young Chet Baker, with Luiz Bonfa's chops and Marcos Valle's aching sense of melody , and you get a record that will have you surrendering with a 'Yes, yes, yes'.
