My "artist page" and a beatiful bio on Indie Guild!

(illustration by Gigi Gray)
By day a finance manager, by night a composer-singer-musician-producer, Alberto Arcangeli has been making his presence felt on the independent music scene for almost a decade with a very personal music style that seamlessly blends folk-rock, country and pop with a delightful splash of seventies psychedelia.

Born in Urbino, a renaissance town in central Italy, and raised on a sagacious mixture of classical music and the Beatles, Alberto started composing and recording his own music at a very young age, and although he enjoys playing with other musicians, when it comes to his own compositions, he prefers to go it alone, playing all the instruments himself and retaining total control over the finished product.

The turning-point came a few years ago when Alberto came to the perhaps inevitable conclusion that the music he was making didn’t seem to be working the way that he wanted with Italian lyrics. Thus came the changeover to English lyrics. Since then he hasn’t looked back, producing two splendid new albums, “Dreamsongs” (2009) and “Pop Down the Rabbit Hole” (2011) and providing the music and the inspiration for the award-winning short animated film “Wheels and Love” by the Italian artist Massimo Ottoni.

Special thanks to Tony Lawson.
