Leticia Maura loves to write. This passion dates back to her childhood, when she used to write poetry for the neighborhood of the village where she was born, in São Paulo, Brazil. The daughter of a lawyer and a pianist, she inherited her love of music from her mother, but it was when she reached maturity that she began her career.

With a degree in Journalism from PUC, she moved to Paris and worked for twenty years at Radio France International, presenting newspapers and producing cultural programs. 
It was also on the radio that she met sound engineer Thomas Ferrière in 2005; they formed the duo São Paris and recorded two albums – Movimento and Lá – on the now extinct FCom label, owned by iconic French DJ Laurent Garnier, one of the brightest references in world electronic music. The duo broke up in 2007.  Leticia chose to devote herself to writing and composing, moving away from the stage for a while.
She has published three books. Two works of poetry, Espelho Eu, independently, and Poemas de Candeia, published by Massao Ohno. Then, discovered by the publishing house Companhia das Letras, she made her debut in poetic prose in 2008, with the book Casa 12
In 2018, she made a life-changing choice: she swapped breaking news for art and now lives between Lisbon and Paris, devoting herself entirely to music and literature. 
Try Me is Leticia’s second solo music work. The first is Poetic Collage, released in 2019. 
She currently writes twice-monthly newsletters about poetry, music, creative process and reflections: leticiamaura.substack.com
