TOMMASO DI GIULIO
Music has been in his heart since he was a boy. At 15, he sang in a rockabilly bank in his free time, as he was asked to join by a group of high school friends. Tommaso Di Giulio, born in 1986, has paid his dues amply. He has been on many stages, in Italy and in Europe, changing from instrument to instrument. He has studied bass and guitar, over the years, with an almost maniacal love of detail. He has worked with important artists refining his talent in time as a composer, singer and wordsmith.
Tommaso has more than 10 original sound tracks for theatre, cinema and television to his name, but has come to the attention of music critics more for his talent as a singer-songwriter. From David Bowie to Lucio Dalla, from Ennio Morricone to the Talking Heads and even Franco Battiato, Di Giulio has always been attracted by the multi-directional relationship between music and words. The musical syncretism that characterises his training (and his taste) took him to publish the album “Per fortuna dormo poco”
(Luckily I don’t sleep much) in 2013 and to receive several awards and important collaborations with famous singer-songwriters and musicians such as Max Gazzè, for whom he wrote the piece “Disordine
d’Aprile” (April Disorder). Tommaso Di Giulio’s style has been defined by the musical press as «pop cinematographic».
In 2014 he was chosen as “artist of the week” by MTV New Generation with the videoclip “Voglio un monitor” (I want a Monitor). With his project “Breve in breve” (Short in Short), the Roman singer-songwriter intends to pay tribute to a virtue of songs: brevity. A brevity that does not mean superficiality, but that in Tommaso’s intentions means depth in a short time «but not too short», through the text and the choice of words and sound.
The story has been written by Giorgio Ghiotti, writer.
His brevity is not superficiality, but introspection and depth. Tommaso Di Giulio and his pop-cinematographic style.
