Album, Tour and Music Video - Cecilia Del Bono
My name is Cecilia Del Bono, I’m a singer and a songwriter. My musical roots? Nu Soul and contemporary R&B. Music runs in my blood since I was a child: at the early age 7, I discovered the piano and then I discovered my voice, unavoidably, such as all things you deeply love and cannot live without just because you were born with them.Therefore I carried on, and I approached the guitar: it has been a revelation, because from there on I started to write my own songs.
I love to tell stories; I love to sing about mistakes we do everyday, fall over and rise up again, wrong feelings and those you can’t help. I believe that being gifted with talent is not enough: you need to take care of it. For this reason I went through a colorful journey, which has certainly enriched me. Today's decisions determine who you'll be tomorrow: I chose music right away, without compromises. In 2010 I got a Singing and Jazz Techniques diploma issued by ‘Scuola Civica di Capannori’; two years down the track, in 2012, I graduated from a music high school in Lucca; my specialization was in classic guitar.
From there, an ongoing personal journey rooted in memories brought me to blending myself into the music. At home we used to have vinyls of the bigs, Italian and foreign: from Stevie Wonder to Aretha Franklin and Lucio Battisti. We used to spend our Sundays listening to music in the living room.
This is one of the reasons that led to the release of my first EP, titled “Timeless”, in April 2015. This is an entirely self-funded music project, which I have used as my final dissertation for the bachelor of arts in Vocal Performance that I have obtained under the Essex University of London. Timeless is made of 5 original songs, dedicated to my father, who passed away as a result of a car accident in 2011.
Time has come now to write an album in Italian for my listeners and supporters.The goal this time round is to make a LP of 8 originals Italian songs (genre Soul-R&B), paired with a music video of one of the singles, and an Italian tour. I want to make a record for you…..
and WITH you.

I’m a 22 year-old girl from Lucca. Music has always been a big part of my life: my mother used to take me to classic music lessons, but I soon realized that all I wanted was to express myself through my voice. From there I never stopped singing… this is where my musical journey started.
