Carvalho was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1956. His stage name, "Blues Boy", is a homage to American singer B.B. King, one of his idols and major influences. (Celso would play alongside King in 1986, at a gig in Rio.) He began his musical career in 1970, with only 17 years old, accompanying bands and singers such as Raul Seixas, Sá & Guarabyra and Luiz Melodia. In 1976 he formed the band Legião Estrangeira, and started to perform in some bars and clubhouses of Rio.
In 1980 he formed the band Aero Blues, considered to be one of the first Brazilian blues rock bands to sing in the Portuguese language; however, he decided to follow with a solo career later on, and released his debut album, Som na Guitarra, in 1984. It is famous for containing his most well-known song, "Aumenta que Isso Aí É Rock 'n' Roll". More albums would come afterwards, as well as performances at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and at the Circo Voador in Rio.
2011 saw the release of his ninth (and ultimately last) studio album, Por um Monte de Cerveja, which counted with the special participation of the members of Detonautas Roque Clube.
Blues Boy was living in Joinville, Santa Catarina, towards the end of his life; an inveterate smoker, he died on August 6, 2012, due to laryngeal cancer. He was cremated and his ashes were buried in Blumenau.
