Arthur Nogueira (Belém, 1988) is a singer, composer, poet and record producer born in Belém, in the Brazilian Amazon.

Acclaimed as the contemporary artist responsible for “renewing the tradition of poets in Brazilian song” (O Globo), he has released six authorial albums and set to music verses by great names from Brazil and abroad. 

At 34 years old, he sings poems by Antonio Cicero, Alice RuizAdília Lopes (Portugal), Adonis (Syria) and Rose Ausländer (Ukraine). His songs were performed by Gal Costa, Fafá de Belém and Cida Moreira. Among other titles, he has released the albums: “Sem medo nem esperança” (2015), “Rei Ninguém” (2017) and “Brasileiro profundo” (2022).

The album “Rei Ninguém” was release in CD and LP formats and nominated for the 19th Latin Grammy in the Best Engineered Album category. In this work recorded live in the studio, the composer has opened new poetic paths for his music by setting into music poems by Eucanaã Ferraz (“Papel Tesoura e Cola”) and Rose Ausländer (“Ninguém”) and translating into Portuguese a classic by Bob Dylan, called “You're gonna make me lonesome when you go” (1974), which became “Vou ficar tão só se você se for”.
The voice and guitar EP “Coragem de Poeta” was released in 2019 presenting reinterpretations by Cazuza and Frejat (“Eu queria ter uma bomba”), Renato Russo (“Por enquanto”), María Elena Walsh (“Como la cigarra”) and Orlando Morais with Antonio Cicero (“O circo”). The project resulted in his first solo tour in Europe, in Paris, London and Berlin.

In 2020, Arthur Nogueira once again presented new songs in new partnerships. His music had lyrics written by Fernanda Takai (“Pontal”), Zélia Duncan (“Dessas Manhãs Sem Amor”) and Ronaldo Bastos (“Por Linhas Tortas”).

Arthur Nogueira is also the record producer of two albums: Humana (2019), by Fafá de Belém, and  (2020), by Adriana Calcanhotto, composed and recorded during the period of social isolation imposed by the covid-19 pandemic.


In 2021, he has released the vocal and guitar album “Sucesso Bendito: Arthur Nogueira canta Caetano Veloso, produced by Alexandre Fontanetti.

In 2022, he has released the album “Brasileiro Profundo”, the sixth title in his discography with 12 new compositions. For the first time, the artist wrote all the lyrics, with the exception of two partnerships with prominent poet-lyricists in Brazilian music: Antonio Cicero and Jorge Salomão. Produced by Leonardo Chaves, the project includes a video album recorded in Belém, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador under the direction of filmmaker Vitor Souza Lima.
