Emmerson Nogueira is the eponymous eighth studio album by the Brazilian acoustic rock musician of same name. It was released in 2014 and is his first album to be entirely made of original compositions, instead of the covers he usually works on. Another difference from previous albums is that, instead of working with his backing band Versão Acústica, Nogueira recorded all instruments on his own, using the acoustic guitar as the base for composing. The album's songs were composed throughout many years. Some were co-composed with musician Paulinho Cri, dead in 2012, and these were created between 1978-89. All the others are from the 1990s, when Nogueira took part of many music festivals in Minas Gerais. According to him, the inspiration for composing the tracks comes "from life, from the soul, from lost and conquered loves, from the wind, from the perfume of the ridge and from everything that life keeps as a surprise everyday".
