Ramon Sauló (born 12 February 1954) is a singer[1] and graphic designer from Catalonia, Spain. Sauló was born in Cerdanyola del Vallès. His first public performance was in 1971 in the theater of Sabadell La Faràndula, during a festival of "Cançó" presented by Salvador Escamilla. Sauló shared the list of acts with Guillem d'Efak, Pere Tàpies, Ramon Muntaner, Joan Isaac and Victorí.

In 1973 he won second prize in a singing competition in Sabadell, and first prize in the "Promotion of New Voices" competition in “La Cova del Drac.” This victory led to the publishing of his first record, with CBS in 1976, at a time when Escamilla had taken over the label production branch of Catalan artists. It was a simple two-piece, "Bona nit" (Good Night)and "En un racó del meu cos” (Somewhere in my body), a love song.

Sauló has also acted in "Sis Hores de Cançó” (Six hours of song) in Perpignan, the preface of "Sis Hores" in Canet, at the "Palau d'Esports” (Sports Palace) in Barcelona and appeared in television programs on "Circuit Català TVE" (Catalan Circuit of Spanish TV). He was regularly accompanied by pianist Joan Bertran and guitarist Feliu Gasull.

Sauló ceased performing in the late 1970s and became a graphic designer. He resumed his music career three decades later, releasing an album of six of his old repertoire songs and five new pieces. For the album, Sauló was accompanied by guitarist and composer Toni Xuclà.
