Biography

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 to sign in for talent shows and castings for musicians, but none of which came out as we was expecting. 

Four years later, he decides to leave the band to finish his college graduation abroad, in 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, hence, he decides to try the next edition of Portuguese Pop Idol. 

After 4 months of auditions, live shows, a lot of practicing and nerve-wrecking moments, he becomes the last Portuguese Pop Idol in 2012! Besides, he got the chance to study in London Music School in London, a car and a contract with the major label Universal Music Portugal. 
After coming from London in 2013 as the Best Student of The Year, he starts writing and recording his first album, that will be coming soon!
