The music industry has experienced a period of rebirth much like the mythical phoenix that rose from the ashes to find a new place in the world. But this brave new world is one driven by iTunes, Myspace, iPods and whatever else those techie geniuses will throw at us next.
The question begs, beyond the “one hit wonders”… What can we expect? What should we demand? And what is out there that is not just a series of studio bells and whistles that homogenize music and distill the art and artistry of the experience into something that leaves many wondering, “where has the magic gone?”
Understandably, art it is subjective and what is a glorious cacophony of beats to one, may be a catastrophic train wreck to others. But in the end, true talent prevails and no matter what one’s musicical palette, good pipes are good pipes and true artistry can’t be ignored.
In a recent “take the headphones off and talk treble clef” with Marco Bosco we explored life, love, music and all points in between. With a rich history in the business as very young performer, he got a taste of what music was and what production value really meant. “The show I did out of the legendary Silver Cup Studios in Queens, NY gave me insight into how the likes of Frank Sinatra, true musical and Hollywood icons, created music and made it their business. It was a time when talent trumped hype and the lyric had power over the baseline.” He explained.
Originally from Rome, Italy, Marco’s music has been described as, “All things extraordinary – live orchestration, edgy rhythms, meaningful lyrics and innovative production combined with unique and charming vocals. With the looks of a gladiator, Marco can move a crowd of any age or background while also grabbing their hearts. Like Eminem, Lady GaGa, Ben Harper, Lenny Kravitz or our more iconic performers, Marco has true versatile talent that simply connects with the audience.”
His U.S. debut came as a producer, featured artist and writer on the most recent MIMS album, ‘Guilt’, released by Capitol Records in 2009. “Chasing Sunshine”, Marco’s track on the album, was the first song mentioned in the AP review and became a favorite of reviewers around the world. While ‘Guilt’ sold approximately 60,000 albums worldwide, “Chasing Sunshine” sold over 100,000 single downloadsdomestically on its own and is still going strong.
His self produced single ‘Another Night’ released by his own label Eruption Music Group is currently being added to media base stations around the country in both Hot AC and CHR (Top 40) format.
Humble, insightful, unbelievably smart and open he is in many ways an enigma. What is striking about Bosco is his unwavering commitment to his music. “It needs to stand alone, before the hype, during the hype and AFTER the hype has died down. People need to remember the songs as a force that moved them emotionally. I am not naïve by any means, but a pretty face that can’t sing is just that and beauty fades very quickly if the beats are not pushed to the forefront and an artist is not willing to sink or swim.”
Passionate about his work one of the most endearing and seemingly enduring qualities is his sense of humor. Playful and flirtatious with his fans, he finds the absurdity in everything around him. “My life is real because I am living it, but is it real life? I wouldn’t change a thing, but I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy,” He teased.
With an eclectic and dynamic mix of sex that can sing, Marco has toured with Bush, opened for Nelly Furtado in Italy and played the prestigious San Remo festival twice along with other invited guests including Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and Alanis Morrisette.
He is a star, he is a businessman and he is a real guy who has just so happens to have the talent to back up a face and a body that make people weak in the knees from sea to shining sea!
