Italian singer, pianist and songwriter Chiara Civello announces her return to the US this October with an East Coast tour in support of the album release of "Canzoni" (Songs). Available October 9th on Quarter Moon via SonyMusic Independent Network (SIN), "Canzoni" is the contemporary Italian songbook as never heard before. Drawing on repertoire from Paolo Conte to Vinicio Capossela, Ennio Morricone to Rita Pavone and Subsonica to Negramaro, Chiara creates a celebration of love songs which looks out from Italy to the entire world.
On Canzoni, her fifth studio album, Chiara has gathered an extraordinary array of collaborators: the monumental Gilberto Gil, the poetic Chico Buarque, the pop diva Ana Carolina and the jazz star Esperanza Spalding all lend their artistry to the project. The lush, almost hypnotic orchestral arrangements were conceived by the legendary Eumir Deodato. DJ/Producer Nicola Conte provided an alluring blend of contemporary sensibility and old school analog sound.
Chiara kicks-off her tour on Sunday October 11th at New York City's famed Joe's Pub, offering Italian music fans a fitting "festa" for Columbus Day eve. On Wednesday October 14th Chiara marks her return to Boston, the site where she marked a musical milestone becoming the first Italian artist signed to the iconic Verve Records label upon graduating the city’s renowned Berklee College of Music.
Chiara visits her alma mater hosting a master class for Berklee students on October 13th before taking the stage at Scullers Jazz Club on the 14th. This Scullers set is part of the second edition of Boston’s Sounds of Italy Festival. Another festival appearance follows for Chiara in Miami as part of the annual Italian Hit Week on Sunday October 18th at the North Beach Bandshell. Washington DC and nation’s capital’s newest hotspot The Hamilton will host closing concert of the run on Monday October 19th.
