Regarded as one of the most influential artists in the history of Uruguayan music, singer-songwriter Jaime Roos was born in Montevideo on November 12, 1953. From an early age, he was introduced to several genres that would later shape his musical output, such as jazz, rock, candombe, tango, and murga. After studying classical guitar during his teenage years, he made his debut as a professional musician performing in stage plays and playing with the bands Los Roberts, Epílogo de Sueños, and Aguaragua. In the early 1970s, Jaime Roos relocated to Europe and settled down in Paris, where he worked a series of odd jobs while taking his first steps as a singer-songwriter. Recorded in France but finished in Uruguay, his first LP Candombe del 31 appeared in 1977. He would record two more albums—Aquello (1980) and Siempre Son las Cuatro (1982)—while living in Amsterdam before returning to Uruguay near the end of the dictatorship. In 1984, Jaime Roos released one of the most successful albums of his career, Mediocampo, which included the songs "Durazno y Convención" and "Los Futuros Murguistas." These two tracks were also included in the album Brindis por Pierrot (1985), whose title track stirred up controversy within the country's collapsing de facto government. Only a year later, he scored another hit with the bossa nova-tinged "Amándote," included in his 1986 full-length Sur. Over the course of the following decades, Jaime Roos left an indelible mark on Uruguayan popular music through albums like Si Me Voy Antes Que Vos (1996), Contraseña (2000), Fuera de Ambiente (2006), and Hermano, Te Estoy Hablando (2009). In 2015, he began remastering his entire back catalog.
