Lisbon-born, London-based Agon Branza, is an award-winning singer-songwriter and composer whose work is inspired by the contrasting worlds of classical music, confessional songwriting, and avant-garde electronic production. Influenced by his studies of cinema and music for film, Agon creates narrative-structured and harmonically rich chamber pop music.
Although he was considered a rather strange child for listening to Björk during school playtime, he recently caught the attention of Manu Delago (Björk's percussionist), with whom Agon got to perform. He has also performed with Kelly Lee Owens, Patrick Watson, Jools Holland, the BBC Orchestra, Emeli Sandé, Nitin Sawhney, Katie Melua, Guy Garvey (Elbow), Rick Astley, Cerys Matthews, Orlando Weeks, Another Sky, Eska, Ruby Turner, Alev Lenz and Glen Scott.
As part of his composing career, Agon has already published a cycle of 5 piano pieces, "Inner Anthems", under the name Gonçalo Abrantes. His piano works amount to more than 40k streams on SoundCloud and have been included in 3 of Nils Frahm's Piano Day playlists. He was also awarded a Cannes Silver Lion and a Best Soundtrack award for his TV advertising works.
