Alessandro Ragazzo - Venice

The dreamed journey


The new EP by Alessandro Ragazzo

Available in all digital stores from February 29th
The emerging singer-songwriter recounts alternating states of mind through an imaginary journey set amongst the shadows of Venice.

The EP "Venice", the record of the day on the notable music portal, is the solo project of Alessandro Ragazzo on the wave of the acoustic/alternative pop scene. It tells, in 3 tracks, of "the mental journey set in Venice, where nothing is real", as defined by the author.

The first track of the EP, The Man With The Hat, apparently a love song, is the start of a journey, a dream where nothing will be true. A mysterious song, sad, but at the same time full of hope and a sense of freedom.
The second, You, starts with a guitar arpeggio, complemented by a drum-machine rhythm. The track tells the story of a soul conditioned by sentiments, where the mis-taken moment and the words not said end up ruining everything.
The third and last track, Epilogue, represents the end of the journey with a total re-alization, through an electronic base and a stream of words that come directly from deep inside the author's soul. The lyrics speak about indifference, about pain, and an awareness of how often it is difficult to understand and to be understood.
Alessandro Ragazzo was recently a guest of Indiemood Sesssion, a series of online videos filmed on old boats along the Venice canals, in which various pop artists participated of the caliber of An Harbor, Indie talents such as Artemoltobuffa, reggae group Mellow Mood and the best emerging artists on the music scene, present on Rockol.
