LOVESICK DUO - Bastia Umbra (PG)
We are pleased to announce the addition to the team of multi-instrumentalists from Bologna Lovesick Duowith their sound that draws on American rock'n'roll, country and swing from the 1940s to the 1950s. The duo consists of Paolo Roberto Pianezza - electric, acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar, single and double neck lap steel, resophonic guitar and dobro - and Francesca Alinoviwho plays the double bass with the addition of the brush pad, a percussion instrument incorporated into the instrument that allows her to mark time with a drum brush.
One of their concerts leads to a total immersion in the atmosphere of 1940s-1950s America: with their sound, clothing and vintage musical instruments, they touch on the themes dearest to Country Music and Rock'n'Roll such as love, betrayal and unbridled fun in their songs.
From their most recent album in 2021 All Over Againthe fourth in their official discography, they have released three singles for radio airplay and received numerous cross-radio and music critical acclaim. Their tracks have been played on radios in Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the UK, Ireland, the US and Brazil, receiving a nomination for the US Western Artists' Award and an invitation to perform as guests at San Remo House at the Palafiori in the Ligurian city, on the occasion of the 71st edition of the Italian Song Festival, in the programme We Have a Dream conducted by Red Ronnie.
The album comes after Lovesick Duo (2015), New Orleans Session (2017), The Cardboard Suitcase (2018) - with exclusively original songs written in Italian - plus several singles released between 2019 and 2021. Over the years they have been invited to perform throughout Italy, Switzerland, Poland, France, Ireland and the United States at festivals, clubs, public parties and private receptions, averaging over 120 concerts per year.
Paolo and Francesca also participated as actors/musicians in the film Lamborghini and the series of Sky TV dedicated to Francesco Totti I hoped to die sooner.
