Veloso studied physics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He turned later to music and singing. In 2000, he recorded his first album, Máquina de Escrever Música (English: Music Typewriter), but his songwriting debut came in 1982 with "Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco Do Ile", a reference to African mythology.
Again in 2011, he contributed to the song "Águas de Março" that featured ATOM™ Toshiyuki Yasuda and Fernanda Takai for the Red Hot Organization's charitable album Red Hot+Rio 2. The album is a follow-up to the 1996, Red Hot + Rio. Proceeds from the sales were donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues.
One of Moreno Veloso's music groups is called Moreno + 2, including Moreno Veloso, Alexandre Kassin and Domênico Lancelotti.
