Diogo Piçarra is a Portuguese singer, interpreter, musician, song writer, producer and artist.
He was born in Faro, South of Portugal, and began his adventure as a musician at the age of 16, in 2006. After his first guitar lessons, he began to sing for the people around him, and he felt that they liked what they heard.
One year later he forms his first band, "Fora da Bóia" and he stands out as not only a good guitar player, but also as a great vocal performer and writer.
In the end, they won band contests, they played throughout the country and gain some reputation among the youngest generations.
He finally sees that this is what he wants to do for a living, so he starts signing up for talent shows and castings for musicians.
Four years later, he decides to leave the band to finish his college graduation abroad, in the Czech Republic.
In 2011, he returns to Portugal as a reborn artist but this time he decides that he'll go for a solo career. So, he starts recording some covers on the Internet and publishing them on YouTube and on many social pages.
Invitations start to appear and the audience begins to grow and he decides to try out for Portuguese Pop Idol.
After 4 months of auditions, live shows, a lot of practicing and nerve-wrecking moments, Diogo wins 2012's Portuguese Pop Idol which lands him a major label deal with Universal Music Portugal.
