Fabrizio Cammarata is a singer-songwriter, hailing from Palermo, Sicily.
Fabrizio's main inspiration is his hometown, but there is Cuba and Africa in his songs, along with Bob Dylan, Fabrizio De André, Ben Harper and Nick Drake. You can hear the echo of Miriam Makeba's African lullabies, and songs in which a Cuban trés is unexpectedly in harmony with Indian tabla and rhythmic percussions, electric bass and guitar.
The second album "Rooms" and its first single "Alone and Alive" is released in EU through the German Panmondial/GrooveAttack, in Poland through MyMusic and in Italy through ViaAudio/Venus . The Album was recorded and mixed between Sicily, NYC, Portland OR and Tucson. It was produced by JD Foster (Calexico, Marc Ribot, Richmond Fontaine, Capossela) and features, among a bunch of fantastic Italian musicians, collaborations by Joey Burns from Calexico and Jairo Zavala (Calexico, Depedro, Amparanoia), mastered in Cologne, Germany by H.Jaeckl.
The actual album is very well received around Europe including his home country Italy, where Fabrizio Cammarata is a prominent part of the independent musical panorama. Top reviews and interviews, major airplay and features, as well as great shows build on what was funded by the first award-winning album "The Second Grace", whose single "Antananarive" had MTV- and National Public Radio heavy rotation.
The videos of "Alone and Alive" and "Antananarive" are both directed by the Sergi Capellas (RCR Films, Barcelona).
Over the last few years, Fabrizio played numerous shows, in Europe, US, Canada, Mexico (like SXSW, LiverpoolSoundCity, MaMA, c/o pop, CMW, Glimps, Eurosonic) and of course Italy, affecting in solo shows and band line-ups. He also opened for the likes of Ben Harper, James Morrison, Devendra Banhart, Iron & Wine, Gang of Four, My Brightest Diamond, The Devastations, Depedro, Carmen Consoli, Ely Guerra as well as before and with Daniel Johnston and touring with Josh Haden's Spain – experiences that prove a succeeded conversion of the album's intensity and interesting tone colour on stage.
The recent projects are the album "Skint & Golden", featuring Manchester based long term friend Paolo Fuschi. The first singles already gained rotation on national radio. The album will be released in autumn.
Another project is "Send you a Song", a musical road movie and inner reflection directed and filmed by Luca Lucchesi in various episodes around the world, leading to Fabrizio Cammarata's next album, to be released 2017.
