“OLIVER STAY ” The Cleveland Based Alt-Pop Performer

“I’m a letdown!”

An exclamation from solo singer-songwriter Oliver Stay. This Cleveland-based Alt-Pop performer doesn’t say this to describe his music, but to describe his relatable message. Going against the grain of the modern “sell yourself at all costs” mentality typically found in this medium, Oliver strives to connect with you; and wants you to stay. 

In 2017 he found his first success when several of his songs were used in parody movie trailers on a popular youtube channel. Leading to his first interview on a local radio station where he announced his debut EP Castle in the Sky. Only a year after that he released his first full-length album If I’m Being Honest.

Now in 2020, he’s shifted his focus to releasing singles. Of the four songs he’s released so far, “Bones” is the most recent single and has easily broken the mold of all expectations. Inspired directly from the song Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too by Say Anything mixed with vibes from artists like MGMT, The 1975, and The Killers. Bones is catchy vibe about when casual hookups turn more serious for one person out of the two. “My heart still beats / But I don’t know / Where it fits inside your bones.” The music video conveys an energetic lover desperately trying to get the attention of a robotic-like man.

Oliver Stay started learning and playing guitar at 15, specifically because his family fell on hard times financially and couldn’t afford cable / internet anymore. He spent most of his time learning classic acoustic bands like Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, and Third Eye Blind. These influences shaped his earliest songs like “End of You and Me,” “Rewind,” and “It Never Ends” featured on his debut EP Castle in the Sky in 2017. Oliver Stay took what was originally meant to be a hobby a large step forward with his next project If I’m Being Honest. He learned piano and production so that he could be much more in control during the recording process of his music. Now armed with more knowledge, he built his masterpiece from the ground up; creating his genre-bending style and finding his voice as a musician.

“GABRIELE SARO” The Multi Award Winning SongWriter Composer Music Teacher and NBO Member (NLP)

Gabriele Saro was born in Spilimbergo (Pordenone, Italy) and he lives in Villalta di Fagagna (UD). From an early age he showed a great predisposition towards music, when at the age of 6 he reproduced on the piano the melodies he heard on television.

He has been always motivated by two different attitudes: on one hand scientific rational, on the other hand artistic and creative. He has a scientific A levels and a Bachelor Degree in Business Economy, a Diploma in Violin and a Master of Music in Film Composition: different paths, but Gabriele knows how to mix them perfectly. That’s why he accomplished a Master in Neuro-linguistic Programming in 2012 and a collaboration with NLP’s international trainer Marco Valerio Ricci for the realization of sound material for therapies: music and rationality, research and harmony.

These are just a few interest of Gabriele, the ones which influence his artistic career: anthropology, biology and science fiction… but the most important activity is beyond doubt music and composition.

He cooperates as a violinist in classic and light music, he sings in various choirs of Friuli Venezia Giulia and he also went on several tournée abroad with them, the last one in Canada.

But not just the violin: infact, Gabriele can play also the piano and the organ, he listens to music of all kind, especially soundtracks. He deeply believes that a man never stops learning: he combines the experience gained over years (concerts and choral direction seminary, summer camps and wind orchestra contests) with passion for composition. He attended Masterclass in Film Scoring and Production Music with M° Hans Zimmer, DJ Armin Van Buuren, M° T.C. JonesM° P. Buonvino M° R. Frattini, M° G. Plenizio, M° R. Calabretto M° S. Rapezzi and M° G. De Mezzo and in composition, arrangement and direction with M° Conrade Pope, M° R. Stroope, M° V. Miskinis, M° V. Sivilotti, M° R. Miani, M° L. Donati, M° A. Cadario, M° V. Zoccatelli, M° A. Martinolli,  M° W. Pfaff, M° V. Poles, M° G. Venier and M° M. Corcella. He is active member on Masterclasses in Film Making with the Directors Ron Howard, Werner Herzog, Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee.

Art and science, holy and profane: Gabriele’s dual soul reveals itself also in the variety of his compositions published. Rising sacred music composer thanks to many masses and pieces for “a cappella” or with instrumentals, boasts many flattering appreciations also for his profane compositions, mainly for symphonic and wind orchestra.

The enthusiasm and the passion for his job and for his life got him in touch with lots of persons, creating new collaborations. He recorded CDs “Sunsets”“Sunsets 2” “Passion” and “SensationS” (on AMAZON, BigCartel, Macrolibrarsi, Il Giardino dei Libri, and on digital download worldwide). These tracks for piano, violin and cello, awarded at Global Music Awards, can be considered as first works that bring Gabriele closer to the world of incidental music: those are the most appreciated works according to the public in Concert Halls and radio broadcasting, in USA, Canada and Japan in particular, making Gabriele extremely proud.

He has plenty of collaborations: he works and share his notes also with lots of artists also for Pop, R&B, Club, Rock and Electronic Music. One recent achievement for Gabriele is the agreements that he signed with prestigious American Licensing Companies and Publishers, like  Simply Grand Music Inc., Music Of The Sea Inc., Audiosparx and Songtradr for the commercial licensing of these tracks (Top 100 Artists, Omnicom Group NYC, major films, indie films, networks and cable tv, advertising, in store play, phone apps, video games); his music, distributed also with the Alias Gabe Saro, has been pitched by Companies like FOX, BBDO,  L’Oreal, Fed Ex, American Media Inc., Clockwise Media Ltd.

He won several National and International Prizes, in Songwriting like USA Songwriting Competion and UK Songwriting Contest, and in Choral, Orchestral and Film Music Competitions; gorgeous moments for the Contemporary R&B songs proposed and heard by superstars like Usher, Chris Brown and Rihanna.

Among his Awards, music for documentaries, being part of the Virtual Choir 4 and 5 by E. Whitacre, more than 800 tunes registered with   S.I.A.E. and  ASCAP (USA), being full member at The Guild of International Songwriters and Composers, andbeing selected on titles for entrance examination on a Master in Composition post Diploma by the prestigious Academy of Lubiana (2017)

A life for music, and music for Life: this is the real biography of Gabriele.

The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter & Performer”Ed Sheeran”

English artist Ed Sheeran is a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter known for hit songs like ‘Thinking Out Loud,’ ‘Photograph,’ ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Perfect.’

Who Is Ed Sheeran?

Ed Sheeran is a singer/songwriter who began playing guitar at a young age and soon after started writing his own songs. When he was just a teenager, he moved to London to pursue his music, and his outpouring of creativity added up to several early EPs and hundreds of live shows. Drawing attention for his online performances, Sheeran hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart before he ever signed with a record label. Since signing with Atlantic, Sheeran has sold millions of records, had a song appear in the second installment of The Hobbit trilogy and won Grammys for hits like “Thinking Out Loud” (2014) and “Shape of You” (2017).

Early Years and Career in London

Ed Sheeran was born on February 17, 1991, in Halifax, West Yorkshire, in the United Kingdom. When he was young, he began playing guitar, showing early promise as a musical talent. When he was 11, Sheeran met singer-songwriter Damien Rice backstage at one of Rice’s shows, and the young musician found added inspiration. As the story goes, Rice told Sheeran to write his own music, and Sheeran set out the next day to do just that.

It wasn’t long before Sheeran was recording CDs and selling them, and he soon put together his first official EP, The Orange Room. With that accomplishment and his abiding ambition driving him, at only 14 years of age, Sheeran headed to London for the summer. Thinking he could find gigs in the big city, Sheeran left home with his guitar and a backpack full of clothes, and his musical career took flight.

Once in London, Sheeran got busy recording and playing the local singer/songwriter circuit and quickly released two albums: a self-titled record in 2006 and Want Some? in 2007. He also began opening for more established acts, such as Nizlopi, the Noisettes and Jay Sean, and released another EP, You Need Me, in 2009, a year that found Sheeran playing more than 300 live shows.

It wasn’t until 2010 that Sheeran made the leap to the next level in his career, and it came via online media, a route Sheeran had learned to use with great effectiveness. When a video he posted online got the attention of Example, a rapper, Sheeran was asked to go on the road with him as his opening act. This led to an even larger online fan base and inspiration for many more songs, which ended up filling three new EPs, all in 2010.

Albums & Songs

When Sheeran headed to the United States in 2010, he found a new fan in Jamie Foxx, who asked Sheeran to appear on his Sirius radio show. Soon after, in January 2011, Sheeran released yet another EP, his last as an independent artist. Without any promotion, the record reached No. 2 on the iTunes chart, and he signed on with Atlantic Records that same month.

With Atlantic, Sheeran released his major debut studio album, +. An instant hit, the album sold more than a million copies in the United Kingdom in the first six months alone. Sheeran began co-writing songs with bigger artists, such as One Direction and Taylor Swift, and supported Swift on her 2013 arena tour.

On a roll, Sheeran’s next success would come when his song “I See Fire” was featured in the movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and in June 2014, his next album, x, appeared, debuting at No. 1 in the United States and the United Kingdom. The project featured three Top 10 singles — “Don’t,” “Photograph” and “Thinking Out Loud” — with the latter winning the Grammy for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance in 2016.

In 2016, Sheeran took a hiatus to work on his third studio album, ÷. In January 2017, he released two singles from the album, “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill,” which debuted at No. 1 and No. 6, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. Sheeran subsequently released ÷ in March 2017, and announced a world tour. His new album broke a Spotify record for first-day album streams with 56.7 million listens in 24 hours.
