Coelho & Ridnell

Date August 17, 2019

The music of Coelho & Ridnell bridges the worlds of Brazilian bossa nova and American jazz and pop. The origin story of this songwriting duo begins in 2010 in San Francisco, where American guitar player and songwriter Dave Ridnell first met Chico Coelho, a composer, guitar player, and abstract painter newly arrived in the U.S. They soon penned their first joint composition “Sunny Day” and have continued writing to the present moment, singing in Portuguese and English of love, happiness, solitude and hope, ecology, and human philosophy. Their music has brought them to clubs across the United States as well as Brazil.

Saiko is proud to oversee the Japan release of Coelho & Ridnell’s debut album also named Sunny Day, a collection of 11 original compositions bringing together 30 world-class musicians, and manage their first Japan tour.
