Born of Italian parents, native Montrealer Gianni Bodo, has been writing, recording and performing music for over 2 decades. Fade to Rose, his critically acclaimed debut solo album features high profile contributions from Juno award winning producer Pierre Marchand (Sarah McLachlan, Rufus Wainwright), Juno award winning sax virtuoso François Carrier and world renowned Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Colin Devlin.
Gianni’s music offers a unique blend of pop/rock with echoes of alternative, indie and country music. He has been featured on Musique Plus by Quebec’s most esteemed music critic Claude Rajotte and was touted as one of 2014’s biggest musical revelations.
He was virtually unknown in Montreal’s Italian community but following a strong showing in the rain at Montreal’s Italian week 2016, multiple rapturous performances at Leonardo Da Vinci Centre, a series of radio appearances and a full page feature in Panoram Italia magazine, the buzz on Gianni’s charismatic and passionate live performances has earned him the reputation as of one this year’s MUST SEE MUSICAL ACTS.
Gianni’s latest single, Arcadia, is being distributed by Factory Fast Records NYC and has recently charted on FM radio in Australia. Gianni is currently in the process of recording his sophomore album due for release in the spring of 2018.
