Marinho Nobre is a composer, recording artist and music producer skilled in electronic/synth tracks, orchestral and world music, among other styles. As a multi-instrumentalist with a broad exposure to music, Marinho thrives to bring emotion and flow to his film scores, production works and compositions. His scope of influences ranges from Classical, Electronic, Pop, World, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Blues, Heavy Metal, Industrial and everything in between.

- Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil as the only musician in the family, Marinho picked up his first guitar at age 12 and shortly began taking guitar lessons at the prestigious Zimbo Trio Music School in São Paulo where he learned Jazz and Harmony. Soon enough Marinho began playing in local concerts and events and at 17, Marinho started music college at Sao Paulo’s Alcantara Machado Arts University where he studied classical guitar and composition.


Before completing his 20th birthday, Marinho relocated to the US and was in New York that he found his starting ground to pursue new musical ventures.  In the mid-nineties working as a music producer, Marinho was asked to compose tracks for TV commercials and promo spots for local NY cable stations, which in turn triggered his already existing early age passion for film music. And although mostly self taught, joined the evening classes at The Juilliard School in order to further refine his skills,  studying composition under Conrad Cummings (The Golden Gate) and orchestral conducting under the late Maestro Vincent La Selva (Founder of New York's Grand Opera).


A five time winner in the best score category at the Park City Film Music Festival, Marinho is also a voting member of The Academy of Recording Arts (Grammys).


"World Citizen", Marinho's first solo World Music album was released in 2013. Featuring an array of renown guest musicians and recorded in 3 different parts of the World, it explores and reveals Marinho's quest to work on musical blends of ethnicity.


 Currently based in his Los Angeles studio, Marinho continues on his quest to explore new musical expressions, composing and producing for new projects and ultimately nurturing what becomes a lasting collaboration with a growing number of filmmakers and media clients.
