Moreno Veloso (born on November 22, 1972 in Salvador, Bahia) is a Brazilian musician and singer. He is one of the sons of the Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso and his first wife Andréa Gadelha (Dedé) Veloso. Brazilian singer Gal Costa is Moreno Veloso's godmother.

Veloso studied physics at a university but turned instead to music and singing. In 2000, he recorded his first album, ''Máquina de Escrever Música'' (English: ''Music Typewriter''), but his songwriting debut was much earlier in 1982 with "Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco Do Ile", a clear reference to African mythology.

One of Moreno Veloso's music groups is called Moreno + 2 (composed of Moreno Veloso, Alexandre Kassin and Domênico Lancelotti).
