Carolina Deslandes is one of the leading lights of the current generation of Portuguese singers and songwriters. Since she first hit the scene, her YouTube channel has attracted millions of views and assured her meteoric rise to fame. She has garnered widespread acknowledgement, in the digital world and right across contemporary Portuguese music. Guided by the expertise of the Sons em Trânsito management and agency team, 2018 will see Carolina Deslandes embark on a new phase in her career, as she prepares for the launch of her third album, which is due out in the Spring on the Universal Music Portugal label.
Released in 2017, “A Vida Toda” (A Lifetime), the touching single from this new album, has already become something of a landmark achievement, thanks to its 5 million plus views on YouTube. Last year, the video for “A Vida Toda” was the one everyone wanted to see in Portugal. The country fell head-over-heels for the sensitivity, simplicity and wholeheartedness with which Carolina Deslandes sings of and interprets love. This has helped boost her to the top of all the charts, most notably iTunes, where she still occupies the number one spot. Her much-awaited second single is ready to go and will be out in February.
In 2010, when she was just 26, Carolina took part in “Idols” and completely blew the Portuguese audience away. In 2012 the artist released her self-titled album, “Não É Verdade” (It is not True), which has 3.5 million views, was the first of her singles to get airtime on national radio. In 2014, she brought out “Blossom”, her seconde album, and “Mountains”, the duet with Agir, which has racked up over 11 million views.
In 2016, she announced that she was taking a break from music to focus on motherhood, although this didn’t stop her social media following from continuing to bloom. She now has 70,000 subscribers on YouTube, 245,000 followers on Instagram, over 150,000 on Facebook and a personal blog, “A Vida Toda”, that she is very much actively involved in. 2018 will see the much-anticipated return of Carolina Deslandesto the music scene.
