Born in the neckline of the nation, between Caramulo and Estrela, Úria takes to the stage the blues of the Dão region Delta. From rural legend to urban legend, everything is right: half man-half gospel, fado hands and rock’n’roll feet.
With a background marked by punk, rock’n’roll and low-fi aesthetics, Samuel Úria has gained notoriety since 2008. His “official” discography in his own name includes four LP and two EPs – “Canções do Pós-Guerra – solo (2021); “Canções do Pós-Guerra” (2020); “Marca Atroz” (2018); “Carga de Ombro” (2016); “O Grande Medo do Pequeno Mudo” (2013); and “Nem Lhe Tocava” (2009). His “unofficial” discography, associated with the FlorCaveira label, we can count two CD-Rs and an EP-R – “O Caminho Ferroviário Estreito”; “Em Bruto”; and “Descondecoração de Samuel Úria”. Samuel Úria also collaborated in the projects “Velhas Glórias”, “Ninivitas” or “Maria Clementina”.
Standing out among his peers for his unique use of his mother tongue, his songs can also be found in the repertoire of Ana Bacalhau, Ana Moura, António Zambujo, Cindy Kat, Clã, Cláudia Pascoal, HMB, Marta Hugon or Miguel Araújo, establishing him as the most interesting singer-songwriter of the 21st century.
