Luísa Sobral Short Info

Gold in Portugal (43 weeks in the top 30!), more than 67.000 Fans on facebook, her 5 most popular videos on Youtube have already been clicked more than 1.000.000 times – with Luísa Sobral, only 27 years old, a new star is about to rise in Portugal! Even though (or maybe because?) she doesn’t play Fado.

She already performed at the legendary BBC show of Jools Holland and in 2012 she played as support act of Melody Gardots tour in Germany.

It was the guitar that started her empathy with musical instruments. She was completely absorbed in the music of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker and many others. And it was their music that brought her to the Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA), to be educated in musical terms. During her stay in Boston, Luisa got nominated for “Best Jazz Song”, in the Malibu Music Awards (2008); “Best Jazz Artist” in the Hollywood Music Awards”; “International Songwriting Competition”(2007) and even “The John Lennon Songwriting Competition”(2008).

But more than that, Luísa discovered herself a bit more every year. Her musical identity developed in New York, where she lived after ending the studies in Boston. Back in Europe, she immediately recorded "The Cherry on My Cake", which she named after a dream her mother had before.

All across the country venues were sold out and the audiences hearts got warmed by the magic of her music. It didn’t take a long time until Luísa Sobral took off to Europe in order to perform at festivals like Cartagena and Barcelona Jazz Festival or venues like to Union Chapel in London.

Two years later, Luisa Sobral went back to the studio to record “There´s a flower in my bedroom”. The final result is once again brilliant and the concerts are, as is usual with Luisa, delightful. Maternal magic, making a dream come true.

In November 2014 Luísa Sobral released a new album in Portugal: "Lu-pu-i-pi-sa-pa", a special album which is only for children.
