THONY : The Promising Italian Indie Songwriter

Thony, stage name of Federica Caiozzo, is a Sicilian-Polish singer-songwriter living in Rome. Her latest work, Birds, is the soundtrack of the Italian movie “Tutti i Santi Giorni” by director Paolo Virzì, and gathers songs written on purpose for the movie and others taken from her previous album “With the Green in My Mouth”, released in 2011. With this new album, entirely in English, she puts herself on the same level of colleagues like Feist, Cat Power, Joan As A Police Woman. The album’s 14 short tracks talk about love and insecurity and define an intimate folk – something between rock and classic pop – that shapes a mature, sometimes really wonderful album. Quick steps, Flowers blossom, Paper cup, Blue Wolf, Bird, Dim light, Nyctinasty, are the best episodes of a job always pleasant, icy and fluctuating.

Produced and arranged by Thony, Birds boasts the collaboration of Leonardo Milani, Zsuzsanna Krasznai and Andrea Ruggiero. The album’s new tracks were recorded by Bruce Morrison and Thony in Rome at Struttura11541 and Studio Nero. The songs from the previous album (“Quick Steps”, “Paper Cup”, “Dim Light” and “Promises”) were recorded, arranged and co-produced with Stefano Mariani and the participation of many Italian musicians such as Francesco Arcuri, Cult and Leziero Rescigno. Birds was mixed in Milan at Noise Factory Studio by Alessio Camagni in collaboration with Taketo Gohara.

A really nice surprise. We hope she won’t disappear, and that someone who matters in the international music business is going to notice her.
