RUN THIS TOWN - OFFICIAL VIDEO (CLICK TO WATCH)
Cléo is not a “why?” type of girl. Cléo is a “why not?” girl. Pop is her passion, rock is her destiny and with a Latin looseness running in her veins and the northern punch taking over her body, a perfect power pop storm is formed. She’s not here to take part, she’s here to take over with loud guitars, screaming vocals and frenetic hip moves. The newest dirty pop sensation promises to cure the world of boredom til 2027. And maybe cure lactose intolerance as well...
She's been on the road since 2013 performing in over 140 stages per year, including prestigious venues such as Olympia in Paris, O2 Academy in London, Bradesco Theatre in Sao Paulo, The Bitter End in New York, Alexandra Palace, 93 Feet East in London and countless venues around the UK. She also had the pleasure to sing abroad in Spain, Italy and in festivals in Portugal, Latvia, France, Belgium, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Wales and England.
Cléo released her first EP “Unlucky Girl” in 2013 and a single in 2015 called “Pinball Machine”. Both were received with praise by the public and industry, securing airplay on over 100 radios all over the world and a partnership with Cartoon Network.
2016 started with her brand new single release: “Run This Town” a fresh, more mature and minimalist sound. But still packing a punch and loads of energy. It also opens the door to her brand new era: CREATURES.
Creatures is the title of Cléo's brand new audio-visual show released mid 2016 and up and coming EP to be released early 2017. Both walk a thin line between reality and fantasy bringing out the inner creatures inside of us to fight the manipulative media and society. This new sound can be described as dirty and careless pop with influences of late 90's punk pop and elements of eletro rock. This energetic new sound walks in perfect harmony with Cleo's pure Latin and pop explosion.
Born in Santos, Brazil, Cléo is a professional singer, dancer, actress and performer. She started her career in Musical Theatre and soon was performing on big stages all over her country. She's been cast in many famous musicals such as Mamma Mia, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and others. But deep down inside she always knew that writing and performing original music was her true calling. In 2011 she decided to move to London, UK, to start her new journey as a singer/songwriter/performer. After a couple of years of studying and perfecting her craft, Cléo finally found her voice. Her music is a perfect artistic interpretation of her strong personality and she is best known for her powerful, energetic and magnetic stage presence.
