“Elvis Elvis” – His Comeback
At the age of four the infant prodigy of the 80s and
90s sings in public for the first time. Today “Elvis-Elvis” signs his new
CD “Insieme-Noi” (together-us) with his real name Elvis Colangelo.
Elvis’ father - DoDi Colangelo – started
playing different instruments at the age of five, but it’s only in 1983
that DoDi and his band record their first LP album ”S. Domingo” with Durium
in Milan, Italy. This album features important artists such as Bigazzi /
Cavallaro / Lino Di Palma / Geyrey / F. Murruni / R. Luvero / Anesa /
Bargel/ L.Ceroni / Maurizio Bassi / Pace / F. Albertelli / V. Reitano / M.
Di Franco / R. Luvero / Switchcraft; producer is Gegé Reitano. Two songs
are written by Maurizio Bassi, producer of the famous song “Tarzan Boy”
(1985). The guitarist of this song, Giorgio Cocilovo, is playing guitar in
Elvis Colangelo’s CD “Insieme Noi”.
In 1984 DoDi recorded two further albums: one with
Mino Reitano and the other with Durium, both in Milan, Italy. In April 1985
DoDi’s band dissolved so he decided to have his son Elvis
participate to the Zecchino d’Oro contest in Switzerland with the song
“Lettera al papà lontano”. Elvis won the singing contest, starting his
career in the music business. His artistic efforts were rewarded in 1986 by
the Antoniano in Bologna, Italy, and also won him the first prize at the
“Cantitalia” festival the same year. The song “La lettera al papà” was
recorded at “Powerplaystudio Zurich” and included in the compilation with
great Italian artists such as Toto Cutugno / Eros Ramazzotti / Mattia Bazar
and others. Elvis signed a contract with Willi Viteka.
In 1987 he recorded and released “Siamo Giovani” and
“La lettera al papà” produced by Willi Viteka. From 1988 to 1992 he
recorded the songs “Okay Ragazzi”, “Sarà L’età” , “Fortuna”, “Favola Rock”
, “Insieme-Noi”, “E-Ti-Amo” – with the label “Star-Music-2000-CE-78”.
Elvis worked with big names of the international music industry, taking
part in several TV productions and shows. After many years of intensive
artistic work, Elvis decided to take some time off, still continuing his
path in the music universe by being DJ until 2000. Starting that same year
Elvis took up recording again and seriously pursued his singing lessons in
order to awaken that passion and aspiration for music his beloved father
had had in the past. After four years of work he produced his new CD
“Insieme-Noi, mixed by Armand Volker, internationally known for over 20
Elvis, his father DoDi and mother Rina are faithful
to Padre Pio, having overcome dark moments in their lives.
Therefore, they have written an autobiographical song dedicated to Padre
Pio, “Grazie Padre Pio”, sung by DoDi Colangelo with background vocals by
Elvis. On this CD dedicated to Padre Pio, DoDi records, alongside with his
own songs, also seven songs written by his son Elvis. The revenues from
this CD will partly be donated to charity.
Release date of Elvis Colangelo’s CD “Insieme noi” as
well as DoDi Colangelo’s CD “Grazie Padre Pio” is April 3, 2005.
