These influences never left him, even when he became a punk rock band leader later on. Today, his devilish romantic lyrics, the recited, uncompromising and unpretentious singing combined with his diverse sound influences place Godá in a unique style for a Brazilian artist. Goda´s original work has just been released in Brazil in the album “Renato Goda”. Originally, the recording of the songs in this album were not meant to be released on a CD but merely for registration of a new repertoire.
They were recorded in two days of studio, played live. The musicians did not know the songs previously and had to improvise. Goda wanted a natural and raw sound and had the support of inventive producer Apollo 9 (Bebel Gilberto, Cibelle, Nação Zumbi, Otto) and of the legendary American sound engineer Roy Cicala, (John Lennon, Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Miles Davis, among others), both responsible for the recordings. The songs ended up on the web and hit the top parade of Brazilian music websites such as mondo77FM and attracted the attention of a small record label that signed up to the CD distribution. A throw back to the New York jazz heyday and using acoustic instruments, his original and romantic melodies have captured the attention of critics in Brazil and abroad and Godá has been gaining increasing recognition as one of Brazil´s coolest new talents.
