Produzioni Fuorivia, Gianmaria Testa Solo, Joe's Pub
Gianmaria Testa, who is heading to Joe's Pub on May 4th, 2013, sings in Italian and lives in Italy. The cases of the life have wanted that its first three albums have been produced in France (Montgolfières, Extra-Muros and Lampo), but in five years he imposed himself as artist of talent: the press (both French and Italian) has been unanimous in individualizing him such as one of the most important actual Italian singer songwriters.
Gianmaria is a deeply popular and at the same time refined singer songwriter; a songwriter of the hoarse and velvety voice that makes his true strength in the "naked song". Texts could be considered as small poetries that speak of fogs and meetings, of loneliness and of hills and music that evoke the tango, the jazz, the bossanova, the habanera, the waltz and they create warm suggestions, intense, that can wrap. His singing images and feelings is simple, of popular matrix, traditional, and therefore winning, it goes beyond banal comparisons and easy approaches and it is deposited directly in the intimate of whom listens.
If the international success of the first albums produced it's certainly important, the intoxicating applause of the Olympia, the concerts in the great European and American theaters, are however extraordinarily intimate the colours of the earths of Langa; it is really typical of Gianmaria Testa to convert into music the heels of a woman that loses herself along the platform of an anonymous station as the fingernails stained with lime of a mason who dies with his house built alone in his eyes and in his heart.
Gianmaria already has to his asset more than 2000 concerts in France (among which the New Morning, the Olympia and L'Alhambra), in Italy (in some of the most prestigious theaters: Teatro Regio in Turin, Teatro della Pergola in Florence, Teatro Valle in Rome, Teatro Duse in Bologna, the new Auditorium in Rome, etc.), in Belgium, in Luxembourg (Philharmonie) in Switzerland, in Germany (Prinzregententheater Munich; Babylon Berlin; Alte Oper Frankfurt), in Austria (Konzerthaus Vienna) in Portugal, The Netherlands (Muziekgebouw Amsterdam), Canada (Théâtre Maisonneuve Montréal; Palais Montcalm Québec city) and United States.
