Carluz Belo’s debut album comes out on October 30
After a series of edited singles, the album finally hits stores and digital platforms. The album is edited with the support of SPA [Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores].
In the words of Carluz “the album features a series of songs that, together with the themes already released, complete an alignment in 12 chapters, on a journey through some of my emotional territories. It is an album with surviving melodies for more than a decade and that not even a pandemic can stop.”
According to the artist “the whole composition process was very involved in contact with nature and almost all the themes fit into a kind of interior season, inside the soul. There are walks by the sea, there are loves and disenchantments, colorful childhoods, mystical forests and fluttering birds… Listening to this album today is the best way to get to know me as a musician and as a human being.”
Carluz Belo reveals that “there is a musical matrix in me that was born in the 80’s, with emphasis on the works of Lena d’Água, António Variações and the melodies of Eurovisão, children’s songs – all this marked me very much as a kid. Over the years, there are countless artists and works that have inspired me with great intensity: Kate Bush, Sufjan Stevens, Marisa Monte, Rufus Wainwright… But the band that really made me want to be a musician 100% was the Brazilian Legião Urbana.”
The album has the support of Fundo Cultural SPA. A rare case, since “only works by new authors are chosen exceptionally when the quality and relevance of the projects justify it. It is a recognition of which I am very proud”, explains Carluz Belo.
‘Menino Da Praia’ goes out on October 30th on all digital platforms. For now, the physical format on CD can be purchased exclusively at www.carluzbelo.com.
