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. She promises to cure the world of boredom til 2027. And maybe cure lactose intolerance as well.
She's been on the road most of the time during 2014 and 2015, performing in prestigious venues such as Olympia in Paris, O2 Academy in London, Bradesco Theatre in Sao Paulo, The Bitter End in New York, Alexandra Palace in London and many others. She also had the pleasure to play festivals in Portugal, Latvia, France, Belgium, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Wales and England.
During that time, Cléo also worked on promoting her first EP “Unlucky Girl” and released 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.
Now working on her upcoming EP, Cléo is focused on writing new music and eating pancakes (mmm... maple syrup). Her new work is to be expected during the second semester of 2016. Til then, be sure to follow her on social media as her summer festival dates are soon to be announced.
