Roberto Kustler’s newest creation, “Shoulder To Cry On,” blurs the line between a hard-hitting ballad and distinctive vocals. To those who have not yet explored the multi-faceted realms of this creative, now is the time to introduce you.
Born and raised in Guarapuava in Brazil, Roberto, at the age of eight, discovered the music world, starting with guitar lessons and after singing lessons. When he was ten, he first appeared in front of the audience, playing Michael Jackson.
When he turned sixteen, he went for an exchange program in the United States, where he took guitar classes, and throughout his six months he was creating his first compositions, always showing his songs to other classmates. Returning to Brazil, he continued making small presentations in his town and was always highly praised. In 2017, he recorded some of his songs, but even before launching this work he ended up meeting producers from São Paulo and Nashville.
This is where he started a project for an album with ten tracks, starting the pre-production in Europe and later to Nashville for the recordings, mixes and mastering. In 2018 he participated in the talent program, The Voice Brasil. After reaching the end of his time on The Voice Brazil, where he got to the first few rounds, Roberto came back to his project.
The Project was fully completed at the age of twenty in 2019, but never failing to think about the future, with many demonstrations of new music and ideas, always grounded, persisting and trusting.
The track is something that not only means a lot to Roberto, but the way the track starts is a clear way of saying how he feels. Starting off with a beautiful piano and followed by clear vocals and an acoustic guitar. It’s a track that will be stuck on the rewind button.
One thing that Roberto made sure to do, was to create a documentary about his life before and during music, showing his audience more about him. After twelve minutes of a well crafted documentary, it’s clear to see that Roberto loves learning new things everyday and won’t be stopping anytime soon.
“It’s a very particular and intimate song about a girl and what I want to say to her but never had the chance and the courage for it.” – Roberto Kustler
