Biography

Den Harrow project was popular in the second half of 1980s charting high not only in Italy but also in many other European countries especially in Germany with hits like Future Brain, Bad Boy, Don’t Break My Heart, Day by Day , Catch the Fox all from the first two albums Overpower and Day by Day. The name “Den Harrow” was invented by the producers of the project, which according to them is based on the Italian word “Denaro” (money) and a joke about the italian proverb “with money (Den Harrow) you can make money (denaro)”. It is believed that “Den Harrow” has sold over 4 million records world-wide.

Revealing the Truth

After years of continued fame and popularity, the fans of Den Harrow were faced with an unbelievable news, it was revealed both by the frontman of Den Harrow Stefano Zandri and the producers that they had been hiding the truth from their millions of fans. It was disclosed that Stefano Zandri did not actually sing his own songs; he was essentially a character who lip-synched to vocals produced by a number of other Italo singers. And since they did not consider Zandri’s name and origin to be trendy enough, the producers R. Turatti and M. Chieregato had decided to invent a fictitious English based last name Manuel Stefano Carry as well as U.S. based birth place Boston Massachusetts, U.S. by concealing Stefano’s true Italian origins to be able to market him more easily in the English speaking world.

Most of the songs for Den Harrow project were sung by an American vocalist Tom Hooker Beecher (aka Thomas Barbey, who was residing in Italy during the Italo-Disco era), including Europe-wide hit singles “Don’t Break My Heart”, “Bad Boy”, “Catch the Fox”, and “Future Brain”.
