International singing sensation Patrizio Buanne showcases his musical versatility that ranges from Italian favorites to timeless romantic standards to modern pop that has won him legions of fans worldwide.
International superstar Patrizio Buanne is taking America by storm with his seductive
'Julio Iglesias-meets- Tom Jones' mixture of ballads and bravado.
On his latest release and current U.S. tour 'From PATRIZIO con amore',
he's delivering entertainment with a romantic backdrop.
In fact, The Boston Globe, in a Critic's Pick of the Day, said, "Think male Celine Dion, Italian style…" Time Out NY commented, "You'll feel like you're in a Scorsese movie." "This international singing sensation is going to be around a very long time so learn the face, learn the voice, learn the name…PATRIZIO!" - Larry King.
Having sold millions of albums worldwide in the last 8 years, and having made a mark also on the US album charts and PBS stations across the nation with his first three albums based of Italian standards, the Neapolitan crooner is currently signed for worldwide release in the US for his fourth and newest album on his birthday September 20, 2013.
For Patrizio Buanne, it is all about the voice, and an instinctive ability to convey real emotion. The dark, ruggedly handsome singer has already won over a legion of fans with two previous albums rooted in the pop traditions of his homeland that he released internationally. Buanne has also performed for such luminaries as The Pope, Royal Families, a US President, and numerous other celebrities.
With his current album, 'PATRIZIO', he stepped up a gear. On one level, the album remains true to Buanne's role as an ambassador for Italian song, which is Buanne's trademark, and are, of course, featured on the album ("Never Never Never," "Estate," "Mambo Italiano" or "Tu vuo' fa l'ammericano"), but 'PATRIZIO' found the Neapolitan broadening his horizons and he is putting a more international slant on his natural way with a song. It reached immediate platinum status in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South Africa.
The album includes new songs written especially for Buanne such as Diane Warren's "Why Did You Have To Be?," "This Kiss Tonight," by UK songwriter Paul Barry and the self-penned "Solo Tu (My Baby)." Moreover, there are spirited interpretations of standards such as "Fly Me to the Moon" the Willie Nelson-Patsy Cline hit "Crazy," and "You're My Everything," as you never heard before.
"I'm not just an Italian guy singing Italian songs. It's important to give people the kind of music I am known for, but I also wanted to open myself up artistically and give them something else or rather something "more of me" that's why we called the album 'PATRIZIO'. I wanted to present my passion for interpreting any great song-no matter if Italian, American or New".
Such as Chris Botti, Celine Dion or Tom Jones, Patrizio is searching for that same, timeless quality in a song where the sentiments convey in a credible way and Patrizio interprets those with his own romantic, European approach.
'PATRIZIO' showcases Buanne adding more strings to an already elegant bow. Recorded in Hollywood's Capitol Studios with Humberto Gatica (Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson) and in London with Brian Rawlings (James Morrison, Andrea Bocelli, Cher), the record augments his vocals with some of the classiest players in pop.
Buanne accomplishes a beautifully international slant on his natural way with song which heralds a new era for the young Neapolitan and assures him the confidence of touring more the US and in recording his next album. PATRIZIO BUANNE: A true voice of Dolce Vita.
But what quality separates Patrizio Buanne from other great artists? Is it the natural grace of his voice, the "rugged" good looks, or the confident, casual, respectful attention that he gives to his audience? Or is it just the basic trust he evokes in people? Italy has provided a simple word to describe all of the above; "Simpatico".
