LOS ANGELES presents the shining talents of Michele Luppi: an Italian amazing singer who cut his teeth at the VIT Los Angeles, with Robin Randall (co-writer of hits for FM, Mark Free, James Christian etc) as one of his musical coaches.
Upon his return to Italy, he gathered considerable experience having the opportunity to sing alongside some of the most important national and international artists, including: Maurizio Solieri, Andrea Braido, Umberto Tozzi, Glenn Hughes and Ian Paice of Deep Purple.
Strong in a singing style, which has become unique, Michele started teaching with some of the most important Italian music schools.
He also started a massive live work with his band MR. PIG and later joined the Italian Progressive Metal masters VISION DIVINE…
LOS ANGELES is Luppi's personal tribute to the AOR greats that shaped his singing and songwriting abilities and also features Fabrizio Grossi, Tommy Denander and Frankie De Grasso with Gregg Giuffria (HOUSE OF LORDS) appearing as special guest on keyboards.
“This style of music gave me the desire to become a pro musician, the one that got stuck into my heart in my “early day”s: Im pretty sure it’s gonna stay there forever” says Michele. “I think the songs turned out heavier compared to the originals; we all made efforts in order to make the tunes sound “fresh”. I put all my passion and strength in this project”.
While Luppi's astounding vocals can be described as Mark Free meets Eric Martin and songs supplied by the likes of Richard Marx, Jeff Paris and Dennis Matkovsky (among others), LOS ANGELES is a true AOR beauty. “I hope more people will listen to my songs and share the beauty of this “branch of Rock” called AOR” concludes Luppi, adding “AOR is beauty within Rock Music and I’m truly honoured to be part of it!”
