Quarto Profilo is a rock band from Treviso whose members are Giuseppe Pinarello (vocals), Edoardo Giommi (guitar), Rudy Michelutti (guitar), Alberto Marenco (bass) and Andrea De Marchi (drums). Their music draws its inspiration from the sound of the seventies and has its roots in historic bands such as the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. With simple, straight-forward, but never banal lyrics, in the tradition of the best Italian songwriters, their songs reflect the hopes, the difficulties, the dreams and the troubles of today’s younger generation: they are stories told in an everyday language with a certain poetic touch. The history of Quarto Profilo goes back to the distant year of 1995 when a group of musicians coming from various musical experiences, after playing cover songs in numerous venues, started to dedicate themselves to writing their own material. This original band produced two albums: “Quarto Profilo” in 1996 and “Voci” (Voices) in 1997, followed up, after a number of changes in the band’s formation, by two more albums: “Ogni Cosa Che Rimane” (All That Remains) in 2000 and “Cento Parole” (A Hundred Words) in 2002. During these formative years the band had a very full schedule of live performances in the provinces of Treviso and Veneto, the most important of which was, without doubt, the 29th August 2001 when the group opened the concert for the legendary Deep Purple in S. Lucia di Piave (TV) playing for an hour to 11,500 spectators. In 2003 the singer Giorgio Barbarotta and the guitarist Stefano Silenzi left the band but the others decided to continue. With its present line-up the band published its fifth album “Il Cuore Non Lo Sa” (The Heart Doesn’t Know) in 2005, produced by Simone Chivilò (Massimo Bubola, Radiofiera, Marian Trapassi) and Ricky Bizzarro (Radiofiera) for Sonny Boy Music Production. The release of the album was followed by the summer tour of 2005, another tight schedule of live performances for the group. In the summer of 2006 the group was once again back in the recording studio for the pre-production of 12 tracks many of which will end up on the new album due for release in 2008.
