Art Of Melody Music
& Burning Minds Music Group
are proud to announce the signing of italian AORsters Mindfeels
for the release of their debut album "XXenty"
. Born with the name of Dejanira
back in 1994, Mindfeels
were originally the trio of Italo Graziana
- Drums), Roberto Barazzotto
(Bass) and Luca Carlomagno
(Guitars / Keyboards / Violin). From the beginning, Mindfeels
showed their love of American AOR/Westcoast legends, Toto
, and built a set list of Toto cover songs for live, instrumental performances. Later, Dejanira
joined forces with female singer Raffaella Miani
, who fronted the band for the recording of their first, unreleased album, which they self produced. A few years later, new frontman Davide Gilardino
, replaced Raffaella on vocals. The band was completed with the addition of Gloria Strippoli
on backing vocals, and Christian Rossetti
on keyboards. This new line-up (with the exception of Gloria Strippoli
) began recording the second unreleased album "XXenty"
, a title chosen in celebration of their more than two decades of music together. The new line-up prompted a new moniker – and Mindfeels
was born. They chose the name to represent their infinite love of Toto
, led by guitar maestro Steve Lukather, and in particular, their timeless album “Mindfields". In 2017, Mindfeels
signed with new label, Art Of Melody Music
, for the European release of "XXenty"
(scheduled for November 17th
), and also with AnderStein Music
for a dedicated Japanese release later in December
. The cd version will feature liner notes written by Kenneth Bremer
, editor in chief of renowned westcoast music website Blue Desert
, while the first single, "Soul Has Gone Away"
, is available with an official videoclip on Youtube.
