Artist Biography by

The Blues Etílicos is the best-selling Brazilian blues band. In 1987, the group had its formation changed with the inclusion of guitarist/vocalist Greg Wilson and drummer Gil Eduardo. The first album came in 1988, Blues Etílicos (Satisfaction), and immediately sold out, being re-released on CD in 1996. Blending Brazilian rhythms with rock and blues, the group continued its trajectory after the founder Flávio Guimarães began to develop his solo career in 1995. Having recorded a total of six albums, Dente de Ouro (1996) brings capoeira and baião sounds in their singular blues-rock mix. The band's biggest hit is "Safra de 63."
