New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Having recently made his way onto the Scala Radio playlist with the title-track O Método, Rodrigo Leao shares his newest album. Released by BMG International, the album sees Rodrigo take his minimalist, ethereal soundscapes to new frontiers, both comforting and challenging the listener.

Rodrigo Leao may not be a name you are familiar with but in his native Portugal he is one of the giants of the music scene. His latest project is set to change that, introducing an artist who is both innovative, daring and spiritual.

"O Método was one of the last pieces I wrote for this new album. It is a piece full of happiness and tranquility, perhaps because it was written in a place that is very special for me: Avis, in the Alentejo region, in southern Portugal. I spend a lot of time there with my family and my closest friends, so it is not surprising that it is a happy and quiet piece. Initially I wrote it as a theme for piano and string quartet. But it changed once Federico Albanese, our co-producer of this album, listened to the melody. He suggested that we transform the arrangements into a more rhythmic and enveloping piece"

Firstly gaining fame as keyboardist in the hugely successful band, Madredeus (amassing over 3 million album sales worldwide), he has since forged a solo career which has seen him perform with such innovative artists as Portishead's Beth Gibbons; The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon; Tindersticks' Stuart Staples, not to mention Ryuichi Sakamoto and Ludovico Einaudi and composing three major film soundtracks. His latest project is O Método (trans. The Method), already being spoken about as the pinnacle of his output so far, an album which sees him takes his minimalist, ethereal soundscapes to new frontiers, both comforting and challenging the listener with questions which don't necessarily have answers.
