Cristóvam “Setting Sun”

(Artist Bio) | October 14, 2020
Cristóvam is a singer/songwriter from Portugal. Born amongst the deep blue of the Atlantic and the lush green of the beautiful Azores islands, Cristóvam’s music shines with a warmth that you won’t find anywhere else. Growing up, Cristóvam was surrounded by music everywhere he’d turn – his grandfather was a true radio pioneer who started the second oldest radio of the Atlantic and left behind a massive record collection, which Cristóvam would regularly lose himself in.
His love for organic singer/songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Ray Lamontagne and indie folk musicians including Angus & Julia Stone and Bon Iver is what inspires his music today. Blending these two worlds together, Cristóvam hopes to create something that is both authentic and raw, but with a modern twist. His latest single “Setting Sun” showcases jangly guitars, soaring synths and a foot-stomping rhythm. His soulful vocals provide a nostalgic and sincere feeling that listeners can cling on to, finding solace in his lyrics. The stunning single narrates the story of two people who are so lost in each other that they can get through even the hardest of storms without ever noticing them. Cristóvam confides, “I started writing it in 2018, when I was on a holiday with my girlfriend in Sardinia, and sort of left it there. But this year, with all that’s happening and the world being such a strange place, somehow those lyrics resonated back with me,and the fact that I felt so lucky to find comfort in my own little corner, far out in the middle of the Atlantic.” Cristóvam has seen success having won first prize in the “Unsigned Only” category for the International Songwriting Competition 2018. The judge panel featured the likes of Tom Waits, Keane, Bastille and Lorde, among many others. This year, Cristóvam has won two International Portuguese Music Awards (Pop Performance and Song of the Year). Evidently an artist on the rise, Cristóvam continues his journey with “Setting Sun” currently available worldwide.
