Sara Cruz was born and raised in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Azorean at heart, this Portuguese singer-songwriter may be young, but she plays and sings like she's been doing it for decades, and she kind of has. Sara picked up the guitar when she was about 8, but just a couple of years before she had already grabbed the drumsticks and started playing a toy drum like she knew exactly what to do. She was 13 on her first gig, and 16 when she started taking it seriously. She’s not only played some of the most prestigious azorean venues, theaters and summer festivals, but she’s also played shows in the mainland (Lisbon, Porto, Leiria, etc.) and even in London.
In 2018 Sara recorded her EP “Above Our Heads” and in 2019 she was considered “Portugal’s biggest young talent” after winning a nationwide contest. The year 2020 brought the single "Heavy Heart", a song about having to pick yourself up, even if you feel like you're too weak to do it; and also "Rest", a collaboration with two portuguese musicians, LEFT. and Luar.
