    As some of you remember, L'aura is my good friend and talented singer/songwriter. About 2 years ago I produced her debut album, Okumuki. L'aura got signed to SONY, the album did really well (surpassed gold status and had 5 charted singles!), developed a loyal fanbase, competed in the 2006 San Remo festival with the song "Irraggiungibile" , and the list goes on and on....!!! But before I lose your guys' attention.... the NEW news:
-Two of the songs on Okumuki were part of the soundtrack for the Italian movie "Il punto Rosso" .... that competed in this year's VENICE FILM FESTIVAL !!!  We had the fortune of attending a screening of the film, there. That film festival........ is insane. Wow. Double WOW.

- L'Aura at SAN REMO !  :

   .... I left the States back in January and headed for Milan to go and meet up with L'aura and the task was to produce 3 new songs for her "Best Of" upcoming release. One of these was going to be competing in this year's SAN REMO MUSIC FESTIVAL ("But, what's San Remo?" ...It's the Biggest, Best-est and most Prestigious music competition in Italy. Still curious? Go HERE.  L'aura never seizes to amaze me.          .Really.
Every single time we meet, I feel like 10 years have gone by.   "Why?..." Cuz her musical maturity and talents develop at super-human break-neck speeds! The new songs are awesome, the entire team (Musicians, Sony staff, Management, Studio personel) kicked A$$ !!! and that made the sessions... so-much-FUN (see my PHOTO section for Studio silliness) !
The Festival started February 26th and will go on until March 1st (so by the time this news-flash goes to print, she will still be in the thick of it! If you want to see the performances go HERE!
BEST OF LUCK L'AURA !   (a shpaccare tutto !!!)
