"Music is the true universal language"...
Hi everyone and thanks for visiting. I began my studies in classical piano at the age of 6 with my Grandmother, however both of my Grandparents were internationally established artists; My Grandfather Umberto Vedovelli excelled as a conductor & opera coach for La Scala Opera House in Milan and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. My Grandmother Flora Vedovelli performed for years as a concert pianist throughout Italy. I thought it would be great if one day I can follow in their footsteps...So I did. After my Grandmother past, I studied classical piano at The Conservatory For The Fine and Performing Arts in Union City, NJ for about 7 years. I now compose, arrange, mix and perform music for Pop, TV/film, licensing and cinematic trailers. As an engineer, I won two GRAMMY® Awards, 12 nominations, and over 50 successful albums that I've mixed and recorded.
I've had the honor and privilege to work with some of the industry's top producers: Gregg Field, Sergio George and Efrain "Junito" Davila and respected artists: Celia Cruz, The Count Basie Orchestra, Prince Royce, Ricardo Arjona, Victor Manuelle, Monica & Bertha Hope, Grady Tate, & Tito Nieves, to name a few. The list grows with each passing year, and I am very grateful to all the artists and producers that trust me with their projects.
I've also served as an adjunct college professor for three years teaching Live Sound, Music Production, Digital Synthesis, Songwriting and Recording. I am currently living in PA, with my equally talented wife Morgen (who has made her own mark in the industry as a singer/songwriter and VO artist), and our 12 year old son.
A Personal thought:
Music is much more than an enjoyable experience to me...it's a universal translation of emotions that literally anyone can understand.
