Born in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, he began studying the piano as a child, starting his first group at age 13. While in college, he studied music and electronic engineering, dropped out of both courses and eventually used electronics in music, being a pioneer in Brazil. Lincoln lived in São Paulo for a while, where he met with singers [a=Vanusa] and [a=Antonio Marcos], and the three collaborated. By the mid-70s he met with the late guitarist Robson Jorge, establishing a solid partnership and making songs recorded by countless artists. In the 80s, Lincoln started to make a reputation as a producer and arranger, especially in pop music. Stars like [a=Gal Costa], [a=Gilberto Gil], [a=Tim Maia], [a=Jorge Ben], [a=Rita Lee], [a=Roberto Carlos], [a=Caetano Veloso], [a=Maria Bethânia], [a=Angela Ro Ro], [a=Zizi Possi], [a=Fagner], [a=Wando] and [a=Joanna (9)] are some of the artists he worked for. If on one hand Lincoln enjoyed commercial success at the time, on the other, he became a target for the critics, who blamed him for the decay of the genre. In the 90s, he faced a period of oblivion, being rescued at the end of the decade by artists like [a=Ed Motta] and [a=Lulu Santos].
