“The voice of an angel, born of the streets.” Lorenzo’s journey began the day he found his voice, as a young boy falling in love with music. Through his undying commitment to living music, Lorenzo has arrived. Lorenzo is a proud Italian-Australian performer, who musical career is based in Melbourne. His life ambition to be a respected entertainer was influenced by trawling through his parents’ record collection as a young boy. Listening to the music of the homeland provided early inspiration. Umberto Tozzi, Mario Lanza and Claudio Villa, the songs touched him with their unfettered emotion. Lorenzo sang along, and soon the beauty of his voice was no longer a secret. Lorenzo’s future in music was set in stone.
During high school, Lorenzo won a scholarship to study classical music at the highly regarded Melba Conservatorium of Music. During his time there, a new, disciplined and academic approach added a professional sheen to Lorenzo’s vocal timbre. With a rising profile and growing support base, Lorenzo continues to expand his vast original repertoire. Lorenzo has searched far and wide for his dramatic, romantic, classical sound, and has worked with eager collaborators including the cream of the Australian music industry.
Together with Star Music, Lorenzo found early success with a modern arrangement of the Umberto Tozzi classic Ti Amo. The launch of the song at the Lygon Street Festival led to television appearances on Good Morning Australia with Bert Newton, live performances at prestigious events such as the Italian Gala Awards at Crown Palladium, and airplay on national media such as Video Hits and Austereo.
