We're starting this adventure with Peter Cincotti, best known for his mega hit "Goodbye Philadelphia". 88 keys, a bench and a mic. Give those things to Peter and he can take you anywhere.
We get the impression that your Italian roots become more important to you lately. True?
Well they have always been important to me. But in recent years, I have had more and more opportunities to perform in Italy and visit many beautiful places within the country. So Italy has continued to influence me as a person and as a songwriter.
Your career started when you were still so young. How did you evolve personally and as a musician?
Music has been a part of me ever since I can remember. So how I evolve as a person goes hand and hand with how I evolve as a musician and writer. Life and music are kind of inseparable in that way, and as I learn and change as person, so does the music I make. Hence my latest album being quite different than my first album, because I am quite different now than I was at 18.
What in life are you most proud of?
I am most proud to have the family and friends that I have. Without them, little else would have been possible.
From a musical standpoint, I am most proud of being true to myself artistically and I feel lucky to have a fan base (for the most part) that supports my musical expansion and creative evolution.
I am very proud of that.
And here are Peter's questions. You're already curious who we'll ask his questions to? Come back soon and find out!
- What drives you to do what you do?
- What was the worst mistake you’ve ever made?
- If you knew you were going to die tomorrow morning, what would you do tonight?
