Biography

“Anto . . . is an amazing musician and vocalist and has the talent to do anything he wants to do and to go anywhere he wants to go.” - Mark Lewis, Rock Over America 

 

“The music business is a mystery now. Every rule has changed and the way people find music and follow artists is completely different than just a few years ago.” Anto just released his latest single, “Don’t Give a Damn” and while he hadn’t planned on being an independent artist, the change in the industry has given him opportunities he didn’t expect. “Being independent is never boring! I love that I have to learn so much. One minute I’m writing code for a website and the next minute I’m in the studio, producing a song.”

Once signed with the famous German studio, House of Music Entertainment, Anto and his band Summerline collaborated with industry professionals like director Robert Broellochs (Melanie C, Shaggy, The Cure etc.). One of their songs was featured in the music film documentary, “God Smoked”. “Everything was a whirlwind and it was very exciting but the industry changed so quickly and suddenly we were making plans for a world that didn’t exist anymore.”

Summerline parted ways and although Anto liked the comradery of being onstage with a band, he knew it was time to go solo. “I know some people feel like there are too many independent artists out there now so no one is getting heard, and it is hard but I love that it allows musicians to be free. I don’t have to fit into a mold, I can be myself.” Lately he has collaborated with the director and producer, Piergiuseppe Zaia, the founder of Master Track Productions.

Anto was born in Milan, Italy but taught himself English. He also taught himself to play piano and has composed music in genres ranging from punk to pop to orchestral pieces for soundtracks. “I’m still learning. One of my regrets is that I didn’t receive any formal training about how to make music. Everything just came from my heart and I’ve learned the technical stuff along the way.” Equipped with a diploma in Audio Engineering from the SAE Institute, he has been as hands-on with his music as possible. “I want to let the world hear what’s in my head; I want it to be real. The more I learn, the more I know who I am and what I want my music to say.”

Songs from his first two EPs and his newest single “Don’t Give a Damn” have played on independent radio stations across Europe and the United States, and he’s been reviewed and interviewed by magazines in countries as diverse as Russia, Germany and his homeland of Italy.

“Standing on a stage and looking out at people who respond to my music, watching them move and feel what I’m doing, it’s the only sensation I understand completely.”

 

“WOW this is brilliant one of my favorite artists so far…image is wicked, vocals great, songs excellent, hooks all over the place, with a strong production… I am amazed at the tone of the vocals, can’t wait to hear more, Anto has a huge future if handled right.” - Andros Georgiou, AGE

Interviews

D – Quale pensi debba essere la funzione della musica in questo periodo storico, così complesso dal punto di vista economico e sociale?

R – Credo che la musica abbia un potere incredibile. E’ in grado di rivoluzionare le generazioni, cambiare le persone, colpire direttamente il centro dei nostri sentimenti più intimi e profondi.

Interviewed by Michela Zanarella



Continua il viaggio attraverso la personalità e l’animo dei 20 Semifinalisti VarTalent ’13. Impareremo insieme a conoscere loro e la loro passione. Il protagonista dell’intervista di oggi si chiama Antonio Cappiello e vive a Monza. Ha deciso di partecipare a VarTalent '13 perché ha riconosciuto in VarTalent - The project un valido trampolino di lancio e vetrina per una realtà nazionale che è sempre più attenta al Talent Show nostrano.

Interviewed by Luiz Henrique Belmiro



Anto, all’anagrafe Antonio Cappiello, è un giovane artista milanese emergente che si sta affacciando da qualche anno sul panorama della musica pop-rock italiana ed internazionale.Diverse web magazine e testate giornalistiche si sono già interessate di lui dall’ America alla Russia. Anche il “Bel Paese” gli ha riservato degli spazi sui giornali e sul web .

D – Hai altre passioni oltre la musica? E, se non avessi seguito la strada che hai scelto di percorrere, cosa saresti voluto diventare?

R – Amo molto l’arte nel suo complesso e, soprattutto, amo la musica. Fin da piccolo ricordo di essere stato attratto, in particolar modo, dalla chitarra che ha esercitato su di me un “potere magnetico”. Credo che già quello fosse il segno che mi indicava che cosa avrei voluto fare nella mia vita. Tutta la mia esistenza e la passione per la musica si incrociano a delineare i tratti di una vera e propria vocazione artistica e penso che, effettivamente, io non abbia mai avuto molta scelta su cosa sarei voluto diventare nel mio futuro. Nella vita ho sempre respirato arte, la mia stessa vita è arte e non riuscirei ad immaginarmi lontano da questa né, tantomeno, riuscirei ad immaginarmi senza la musica.
