As much as this one. Maybe I could say that this one is more conscious. So, Maybe, I can say that this work is more conscious. With Chester Bennington’s death, I got a wake up call. It was like to have someone waking you up and telling it’s time to fight, to open up.

Interview by Jacqueline Jax
host of A.V.A Live Radio
Band Name: Lorenzo Gabanizza
Song name: Demons
I live in Italy
This song talks about what a man experience fighting with loneliness and inner demons. Addiction, depression, suicide. It’s quite terrifying, kinda hanging on the edge somehow. If you’re lucky you get loved ones near and you somehow overcome the odds. If you’re less lucky, you are alone and the only possible way seems to say goodbye. Just to stop hurting. Suicide becomes the idea, the tempting whisper. Sometimes is just a matter of times, of seconds. Depression has no face and no matter what, it takes you down all of a sudden. Well…if you are alone when that day comes…wow, you’re screwed. This song is all about this. Suicidal thoughts are growing, becoming powerful, gaining ground.. the poisoned gift is offered by “demons” but, are those really demons or are they rather just yourself?
My music is…Well my music is myself. I never put something different than myself on it. Good or bad.
Track coming soon to soundcloud.
All releases over the past years represented my current direction. As much as this one. Maybe I could say that this one is more conscious. So, Maybe, I can say that this work is more conscious. With Chester Bennington’s death, I got a wake up call. It was like to have someone waking you up and telling it’s time to fight, to open up. In this sense, this EP and the forthcoming album “Out of darkness” are representing more my direction, because they are telling the plain and simple truth about myself, my life, the abuses suffered when I was just a child and my daily fight to find a reason to believe I am worth to be there as a man, as an artist. It’s also a way to help people like me supporting the Talinda bennington’s association 320changedirection who daily put all what it have in the tank to end the stigma about Mental Health. They are amazing, really amazing and are making a terrific job. So I decided to donate them all the royalties of this EP.
I started singing when I was 3 years old…
I always had in mind to become a singer and a writer and that I had a message, an important message to deliver to the people. Maybe this is just being overrate myself but this is what I firmly believe and the engine that push me on the road. I could mention however musicians which influenced me, helped me and those are Linkin Park, Soundgarden, Christie, Barry Ryan, Donovan, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond and…don’t be surprised! Russian and Scandinavian classical composer such as Glinka, Tchaikowsy, Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, Grieg…
