Electric Willow is a project by Cláudio Mateus. The lead singer of the former “Caffeine”, launched himself into a more personal and direct approach to his own music, in 2006. Recording and performing live in a band format, together with Pedro Geraldo, Adílio Sousa, Susana Filipe, Nuno Fernandes, Mário Batista and Luís Pedro Silva, the musician has found the appropriate format for intimate songs, in which his voice is backed by dense guitar textures, resulting in a peculiar and very characteristic sound.
The history of Electric Willow includes the release of the álbum “Mood Swing”, edited by Transporte in 2006, followed by “Nothing’s Ever Good Enough”, in 2008 and “Majestic Lies” in 2009, both edited by Honeysound. They were also part of the compilation “Acorda” and in the recordings of “TOG”.
In October 31st 2012, the album “Electric Willow IV” is released.
“There are composers who pursuit their own personal path, without fashions, trends or a momentary tendency. Cláudio is one of them, in exigencies, concentration and dedication”. Filipe Miranda
