All the band members - Pasquale Sorrentino (vocals and acoustic guitar), Giovanni Santoro (bass), Raffaele Polimeno (keyboards), Pasquale Palomba (electric guitar) and Marco Sorrentino (vocals and drums) - are fond of 17th-century painting, therefore their choice to take their name from the famous Dutch painter, Jan Vermeer. In December 2003 I PENNELLI DI VERMEER released their first, self-produced CD, titled “Mod. Barocco, Fragile, Maneggiare con cura, Grazie!”.
The band’s curriculum boasts numerous participations in important music festivals all over Italy. In 2005, on the occasion of their participation in the MEI Fest in Faenza, they distributed “Processo immaginario.ad un nevrotico dissociato ma non del tutto”, their second, self-produced EP featuring 4 previously unreleased songs, plus a bonus track with a videoclip of the song “La pipa operaia”. In 2006, the band opened for FRANCO BATTIATO at the Meeting del Mare in Marina di Camerota, playing before an audience of 40.000 people. They have also been awarded a number of prestigious musical prizes, and appeared on several compilations of modern Italian rock.
In January 2007, I PENNELLI DI VERMEER released their first official EP, “Tramedannata”, for the historical Neapolitan label, La Canzonetta. The EP, presented at the FNAC multimedia centre in Naples, received very positive reviews, published on national newspapers, specialized magazines and music websites. After a series of appearances at important national festivals, the band are now engaged in a promotional tour, and are working on their new LP, which is due to be published in May 2008.
