André Barros is an up and coming composer, with a strong identity and an exceptional capacity for hard work. André was born in the 26th October, 1984, in the city of Marinha Grande, Portugal. In order to consolidate his gathered skills in musical production after attending a two year degree in Lisbon, in 2012 André had the privilege of carrying out a three-month internship in Sundlaugin (studio founded by the icelandic band Sigur Rós), Álafoss, Iceland, filling the position of assistant to sound engineer. In 2013, his debut album "Circustances" is released by portuguese record company Omnichord Records. "Circustances", was widely praised by the specialist press and introduced his musical vision into the national panorama - nostalgic, profoundly poetic, peaceful and magical. A vision that is based on profound melodies that evoke more or less diffuse memories. The capacity that André Barros music has to evoke images led to him receiving several invitations, and so he begins his journey as a film composer, writing his very first score for the documentary short-film "Wounds of Waziristan" by independent journalist Madiha Tahir. In 2015, Omnichord Records releases his second album, entitled "Soundtracks Vol. one". This work compiles a selection by the author of some of the music themes he has been composing for films up to that year. In 2016 André decided to include, for the first time, vocals to his instrumental world and travels to Iceland to collaborate with the icelandic singer/songwriter Myrra Rós. From this collaboration results his third studio album, entitled "In between". In 2015, he is awarded his first "Best score" prize, at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards for his work in Linda Palmer's short-film "Our Father". His original score for this short-film, directed by the american Linda Palmer - with Michael Gross in the starring role -, is one of the outcomes of this recent love affair with the big screen. André has also been recently nominated for the best "Contemporary-classical,instrumental" music award at the 2017 edition of the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. Up to 2019, André has now collaborated with film producers and directors from the United States of America, Spain, Sweden, Japan, Iceland, Canada, Mexico, India, Germany and Portugal. His work surpasses the film industry as he has been intensively working on promotional and corporate videos, with well-known global brands such as Volvo, Volvo Trucks, Prestige, Craft, Stihl, Dhl or Dometic. With musical collaborations that range from Iceland to Sri Lanka, André has released 4 albums so far ("Circustances" 2013, "Soundtracks Vol. I" 2015, "In between" 2016 and "Reasons" 2017) and works actively in the film industry as well as in performing live in concerts.
