PRESENTED BY MICA
Musicista polistrumentista, autore, compositore e produttore è stato capace, nel corso della sua lunga produzione artistica, di muoversi con stile ed originalità all’interno dei diversi linguaggi musicali, passando dal mondo della canzone alla colonna sonora fino alle contaminazioni con la musica elettronica. Ha collaborato nel corso degli anni a fianco a nomi di spicco del panorama italiano ed internazionale: (Daniele Silvestri, Niccolò Fabi, Paolo Benvegnù, Lara Martelli, Collettivo Angelo Mai, Awa Ly, Greg Cohen, Vincent Segall, Tuck& Patty,…). I suoi lavori Apnea del 2008 e Directions del 2013 lo hanno visto impegnato in numerosi concerti in Italia e all’estero e sono stati considerati dalla critica tra i lavori più interessanti realizzati negli ultimi anni.
L’uscita del suo terzo album “ Beauty at closing time”, realizzato insieme al produttore Daniele Tortora (già Afterhours, Daniele Silvestri, Diodato…), è prevista per Marzo 2018 e sarà disponibile sul digitale e CD audio da Alter Music.
Massimo Giangrande is an Italian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born in Rome in 1973.
Giangrande has released albums with variations of style, from indie-rock, electronica to new folk.
He began his musical career as the guitarist and singer of Punch & Judy, an indie-rock band with whom has released, in 2004, the album "La cura migliore" for the independent italian label In Out.
After dissolving of the band, he started composing music for theatre performances and has been working, during the last years, with some of the most original and talented Italian directors. He also worked as a session guitarist, playing on tour with some of the most important italian artists.
In 2008 his debut solo album "Apnea" was released with positive reviews from critics and considered from the press and radios as one of the best and most inspired debut albums of that year.
In the summer of 2012 he enters in his studio with his friend and producer Paolo Benvegnù, to start the recordings of the new songs for his second album "Directions".
In 2016 he doubled as producer and composer in the realization of the album “Five and a feather" for the French-African folk-singer Awa Ly. The album featured, among others, musicians like Greg Cohen (former double bass of Tom Waits & Fiona Apple) and Ballaké Sissoko.
He has collaborated over the years with many musicians and singers including Greg Cohen, Vincent Segall, Awa Ly, Vinicio Capossela, John Parish, Alì Keita, Ballaké SissoKo amongst others.
Giangrande’s influences are rooted in folk, blues and experimental music. If you’re looking for a point of comparison think of the early 70’s music of John Martyn and Tim Buckley with an international flavour.
His last album “Beauty at closing Time” will be released in 2018 for the independent music label Alter Music
