I think my dad would be upset if I stumbled across Gianni Paci and didn't mention him. Well, growing up having classic rock beat into my brain, playing in bars at the age of 8, and knowing who Del Shannon, The Zombies, Procol Harum and The Hollies were over giving a shit about TRL's top 40 "in the now" artist gives me a keen ear for musicians, and artists that have raw talent, especially someone who looks and sounds like a New York City Beatle.
Gianni has this humble look about him while still maintaining this edge to him, like Elvis Costello, (minus the glasses). He has a sound that echoes the 60s yet draws in the contemporary pop sound of the new millennium.
Having 2 LP's under his old pseudonym, "The Pine Hollows." He has released a handful of EPs including his debut "Walking Through A Movie Scene" and "Too Good to be True" and now has a new single out under under that latter EP.
"If You Believe It's Alright"
Long before the age of being legal, Gianni Paci was sharing the stage with rock legends like Ace Frehley of KISS, Steven Adler of Guns N Roses and the late Mike Starr of Alice In Chains. He's been in the studio with the likes of Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Gwen Stefani), Jon Anderson (Yes, King Crimson) and Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai). He's even had the wonderful privilege to perform at CBGB's in New York where punk bands like The Ramones and Velvet Underground got their infamous starts.
