Salvador Sobral’s career began with various journeys of discovery and four years of study at the prestigious Taller de Músics in Barcelona, which brought him into contact with diverse influences ranging from the jazz of Chet Baker to Latin American sounds, boss nova, and singer-songwriter traditions, all of which served to shape his musical personality. On returning to Portugal, he played with some of the biggest names on the jazz scene before setting about recording his debut album, Excuse Me (2016). A year later, at the request of his sister, Luisa Sobral, he performed the song Amar Pelos Dois at Portugal's Festival da Canção, going on to win the competition and represent Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest. The rest, as they say, is history: Salvador Sobral became one of the most sought-after musicians in Portugal and beyond. After recovering from a health problem that kept him away from the music for many months, he returned to the stage for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, singing with his idol Caetano Veloso.
