Lisbon-born, London-based Agon Branza is an award-winning chamber pop singer-songwriter, composer and producer who puts social justice at the heart of his work.
Influenced by his studies of cinema and music for film, Agon creates narrative-structured and harmonically rich filmic pop music, filled with orchestrated melodies crafted above organic synths and electronic beats.
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 in 2019. Among other performers, he also shared the stage 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 a producer, he has collaborated with Steinsdotter (reaching #5 on the UK Club Charts), Heren Wolf, Ana de Llor (DrakeYolanda award recipient 2022), Faultress and Tsinder Ash, among others, some of whom have been featured on BBC Radio 6.
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.
