Nelson Sobral’s Americana Laced “Pendulum”
Nelson Sobral is a singer-songwriter guitarist hailing from Toronto, ON, who is equally inspired by the vast, wide open spaces of the country he calls home and the labyrinthine maze of the city in which he resides. Sobral’s music is as much Americana and blues as it is soul and rock’n’roll, perfectly balanced with the energy and sound of each of his respective influences, uniting them all with one, singular mission: to move and energize audiences into an all-night frenzy and travel the world on the might of his song.
“Pendulum,” the latest single from Sobral, is a genre-spanning journey through love and heartbreak, transforming some of life and love’s toughest moments into a raucous celebration, perfect for the hours between midnight and the early morning. Co-written with singer-songwriter Mattie Leon who also plays organ on the track and accompanied by the talented Selcuk Suna on horns (a member of The Royal Conservatory’s New Canadian Global Music Orchestra), Sobral plays every other instrument himself.
