Cristóvam was born amongst the deep blue of the Atlantic and the lush green of the beautiful Azores, Portugal. He is the grandson of a true radio pioneer who left behind a massive record collection and a big pile of radio paraphernalia. While kids his age were listening to their music in CD players, he was listening to 7" singles on his fathers' old jukebox. The likes of Supertramp, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, among many other greats, would spin on that old jukebox, creating landscapes in his young mind, a refuge from the world outside and a portal to a world of his own. A passion grew inside of him, which eventually led him to want to start writing songs of his own.
His debut album Hopes & Dreams was released on 28 September 2018. Since then, Cristóvam has played more than 30 shows in 5 different countries, sharing stages with Stu Larsen & Natsuki Kurai in part of their European tour, as well as Scott Matthews on his Portuguese tour.
