Gloria de Oliveira

Booking Agent : Olga Karatzioti-B.

Gloria de Oliveira has been writing and performing music since childhood, at first training and aspiring to become an opera singer – through a twist of fate she ended up at drama school in London instead, subsequently working for the stage, film and radio, starring in international productions such as “Babylon Berlin” and Christian Petzold’s Berlinale winner “Undine”.

Wanting to further explore a multidisciplinary approach that combined her interest in performance, visual art and sound, de Oliveira studied Fine Art at HFBK Hamburg and at École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris. Her experimental moving image works have been screened and awarded at film festivals around the world, and she was selected for the Talent Campus at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival.

In 2017 she first began releasing demos to the internet with the Synthwave project lovespells, leading up to the 5-track EP “Lua Azul”. In 2018, Gloria won the Krach + Getoese prize, Hamburg’s award and support programme for up-and-coming musicians, which enabled her to work on her two self-produced EPs “La Rose de Fer” & “Lèvres de Sang” (named after Jean Rollin’s cult vampire films) at the analogue studio Clouds Hill Recordings. Both were released digitally & on limited edition cassette through her own imprint La Double Vie and the cult cassette label Dispersion Records in 2019.

Early 2020 saw the release of her debut album “Fascination” (via Reptile Music & Cargo Records). including remixes by artists such as Gudrun Gut, Box And The Twins, and Fragrance.

In 2021, she composed & produced the score for Peter Thiers’ play “Paradiesische Bauten”, which premiered at the renowned Thalia Theater in Hamburg. In February 2022, she was commissioned to score and invited to play live by art director Leith Clark at Turkish designer Bora Aksu’s A/W 23 Catwalk show during London Fashion Week. In the summer of 2023, she presented her Commissioned Work “SEREA” at Pop-Kultur Berlin – a project inspired by Homer’s sirens via Bossa Nova and Fado.

In March ‘23, she was invited as an official artist to SxSW and performed at the coveted Levitation showcase at Hotel Vegas, among other shows. Other recent live highlights include performances at Way Out West, Grauzone Festival, Maifeld Derby and Synästhesie Festival.

Currently working on her third album, de Oliveira’s recent musical output includes her rework of the piece “Cherry Blossom” (via Nettwerk) by Peruvian composer & pianist Sergio Díaz De Rojas, and a remix of “Dissoziation” by Leipzig-based Psych-Pop/Krautrock group Flying Moon in Space (via Fuzz Club).
