Antonello Brunetti was born in Calabria (south of Italy) on July 20th 1981.
In his early childhood he started to feel a very spontaneous passion for singing, and at the age of 4 years he performed in public for the first time in some local festivals. When he was 14 he started playing the guitar, and just after one year he composed his first songs.
Obtained the diploma, he moved to Rome (IT), where he attended the Singing Faculty at the UM – Music University.
In 2003, under the name ZACK, he created an acoustic demo named "House", which obtained little but important consents, allowing him to perform for the first time in several entertainment areas in the capital.
After he obtained acknowledgments from some important musical contests, Antonello let his rock spirit out by forming the band WHITE INK, with whom in 2007 he realized his first real self- produced EP in studio: "In most people's eyes".
On May 30th 2011 Antonello released his first solo ALBUM, "Open to Change", consisting in 11 tracks (Zimbalam/Believe Records).
In July 2012 Antonello begins his career in DANCE music with the artistic name SHION, publishing the single "LIE TO ME" (feat. BLESSIO) for Smilax Records.
APRIL 2013: With the name of ANTONELLO BRUNETTI @RADIO he launches his single "ACCETTARE", which characterizes his exordium in the Italian Pop-Rock.
He furthermore resumed his attention on his rock/blues repertory, enlarging it with new songs, forming the band ALPHAWAVE (ex NIGHTRAIN).
The first EP of the band ALPHAWAVE has been released as of October 11 2013, spearheaded by the single: "ILLUSIONS (of myself)". It was in 2nd place in the Google Play Alternative best-selling charts, and in the TOP 30 Italian Bestselling chart on I-tunes, Amazon and Google Play Store.
After several concerts in the most exclusive Italian clubs, an intense participation at the radio and many victories at competitions, Antonello is now ready to perform before a larger audience.
2014: Antonello Brunetti won the contest "HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRACE - JEFF BUCKLEY" launched by QB MUSIC, participating in this tribute album together with some important names of the Italian underground music scene. In this occasion he recorded the single “LAST GOODBYE” that will be released on August 2014.
Moved to London UK, Antonello Brunetti is now working on his new album.
Actually without any recording deal, he is seeking for a producer and a good manager.
