Born in Soveria Mannelli, Italy, Stefano took to music at an early age
and began classical piano training at age seven. He quickly gained
notoriety by performing on popular Italian TV shows, and since then has
collaborated with famed songwriters, as well as the famed director
Franco Zeffirelli. Honing his craft further, the musician and singer has
ultimately composed and scored motion picture soundtracks under the
guidance of award-winning filmmaker Jamal Joseph.
2019 marked the beginning of his solo project, when Stefano began
collaborating with famed producer Chico Bennett (Madonna, Lady Gaga, The
Killers, Prince). His debut single “Prayer” highlights the
songwriter’s warm and confessional vocals brimming with such passion,
and yet such delicate vibrato tones. Stefano’s otherworldly vocal
delivery glides with memorable melodies over intimate piano. The moving
lyrics detail the act of loving again after hardship and disconnection.
With comparisons to Sam Smith, Andrea Bocelli, and Michael Bublé,
“Prayer” marked a graceful and exciting debut for this generational
artist on the rise.
In Stefano’s single “We Are The Power,” the songwriter invites us
all to take part in healing the world together. The glorious composition
features soulful vocals, a soaring melody, and a vivacious chorus
complete with a gospel choir for a most heartfelt demonstration of love,
optimism, and vitality.
“Find My Way” was born as a musical tribute to the Motown world that has
been highly influential to Stefano’s musical taste and sound since he
was a young child. Thematically, the song was inspired by his mother,
who raised Stefano to pursue big dreams and share his gifts with
strength, patience, and heartfelt dedication.
Stefano’s most recent single, “False Horizon”, features stylistic
tangents of iconic California vintage highlighted with elements of
nostalgic country flair for an infectious pop-driven song about finding
your inner peace, no matter the pace of your soul. The textured eclectic
blend of instrumentation culminates into deep feelings of romantic
Hollywood angst and soulful reckoning for a song all about embracing
one’s inner journey.
Stefano aims to bring people together through the power of music. By
sharing his gifts, he empowers others to do the same. “Music is made
