KOMRAUS is a London Music Project mixing trip-hop music with cinematic universes, jazz touches and epic lyrics. The origin of the project comes from Martin Komraus music and Sara Rioja's lyrics. From that point the project has grown into the Live project it is now.
Its Debut single- If I Am Dreaming- was released on 15th of December through AWAL and celebrated at The Victoria, in London, on the 13th of December with a very well received and sold out headline gig.
Last January they were selected and played the reputable Discovery Talent showcase in London, as part of the Independent Venue Week and got playlisted by Shoredicth radio with great feedback from the industry.
Now, in collaboration with M.A.R.S Labelgroup, Greenhouse Talent, Pias Distribution and Musichelp from Scandanavia, we proudly present the European debut release of the first single “Just Say My Name” on the 11th of May 2018.
On the day of the release Komraus performed at Sarau 08911 in Barcelona as a precursor of the European tour later on this year.
