Sara Cruz

Sara Cruz is a talented Portuguese singer-songwriter. Her music is an immersive fusion of pop and folk, providing a deeply reflective sonic experience.


For over a decade, Sara Cruz has captivated audiences with intimate acoustic performances, often solo, taking her guitar across various regions of Portugal, the United Kingdom, and Spain, and sharing the stage with renowned artists such as Reuben James, Maria Gadú, and Nuno Bettencourt.


In 2021, she was invited to participate in the traditional Portuguese music album “Coreto” by Rogério Charraz, featuring lyrics by José Fialho Gouveia, about which portuguese newspaper Diário de Notícias wrote: “A love story with other stories inside.”


The following year, the singer and songwriter joined the Portuguese collective “Avalanche” with the track “Neblina,” releasing their debut original album titled “Volume I.”


After “Day or Two”, the first single from Sara Cruz’s highly anticipated debut album, came “Grass Is Greener”. It is a melodic poem about time and the bittersweet duality of the growth process. The song reflects on the past while questioning aspects of life that have shaped the singer. It is an anthem of acceptance, a truce with difficult yet valuable moments.


Produced in collaboration with Cristóvam, this new track features the contributions of talented musicians such as Francisco Santos on drums, Sean Hurley (John Mayer/Lana Del Rey) on bass, and Cristóvam on electric guitar.


Recognized as the New Talent FNAC in 2019 and winner of the “NiT New Talent” competition, her involvement in the documentary “House of Talents,” promoted by Yamaha Music Europe in 2021, solidified her position as a rapidly rising artist. The documentary series follows the journey of six emerging artists from across Europe, brought together for an exclusive songwriting experience in Barcelona, living in a villa filled with instruments and a home studio, with the mission to collaborate, create music, and perform live.


“Day or Two” and “Grass Is Greener” mark a significant chapter in Sara Cruz’s career, building anticipation for the album set to captivate listeners in 2024.
