Biography

Like the eternal city of Rome, Daniele Luppi’s music is at once exotic and familiar, sophisticated but funky, sexy yet sinister, sleekly modern and wonderfully timeless. If you’ve listened to Gnarls Barkley’s Grammy-winning St. Elsewhere, or John Legend’s platinum-selling Once Again, you’ve experienced Daniele Luppi’s brilliant cinematic production and arrangements. If you’ve seen HBO’s Sex And The City, Disney’s Under The Tuscan Sun (starring Diane Lane), or the acclaimed Brian Grazer-produced documentary Inside Deep Throat, you’ve heard the beguiling soundtrack work of this Italian-born composer.

Trained in classical piano and jazz organ, Luppi was immersed from an early age in the film scores of the most influential Italian composers of the era. He made his initial mark in Hollywood scoring indie films The Woman Chaser, Jesus “Jess” Franco’s Red Silk and Christian Taylor’s Showboy, as well as contributing original music to Sex And The City.

While scoring Showboy, Luppi began writing a series of songs in homage to the cinematic sounds he first discovered in his youth. These compositions became the basis for An Italian Story. The album features a number of exotically groovy instrumentals that actually reunited many of the 1960s Italian recording session mainstays. Among them were artists like Alessandro Alessandroni, whose signature whistle and twangy guitar indelibly marked Ennio Morricone’s “spaghetti western” soundtracks. Released in the US by Rhino/Warner, An Italian Story garnered rave reviews in The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter and dozens of other publications
