Driven by the peacefulness arising from the seashore where he grew up, Giorgio De Palo discloses himself through his songs, fully embracing his feelings and thoughts.Born in Rome, raised internationally and currently based in Berlin, he decided to pour himself into music striving to find his voice on small stages as a solo artist and his own sound in his bedroom.The majority of his upcoming EP ‘First Waves’, which will be released in the coming months has been created in his small home studio.
‘Vivid Dream’ is a dainty gem that flows elegantly as Giorgio’s sweet warm vocals caress the mellow melody delicately. This gentle melody drapes carefully around soft guitar strums and a steady drum tap. It’s a dreamy intimate folk hued ballad as the track wistfully and beautifully floats upon a laid back atmosphere and peaceful tone. Sublimely sweet and soothing every strum and note coos and calms you into a tranquilizing state of bliss. With golden rays of gentle sun glimmering through bright guitar jangles and a soulful guitar solo the track is enchanting, uplifting and brimming with glorious tones and oodles of passion.
About the track Giorgio explains : “Vivid Dream describes the search for a deeper truth and awareness in our ephemeral existence. It’s about being conscious of what hides beyond the surface, finding answers in the pure and majestic force of nature.”
