QUOTES FROM CLIENT'S FEEDBACK:

"I hesitate to give my honest opinion out of fear that once the rest of the world discovers Emiliano Loconsolo, I will never be able to hire him again. I strongly recommend Emiliano to anyone who is planning an Italian event or simply if you want to hear a young singer before he becomes a STAR."

"He was everything that I read about and expected- a sophisticated, professional vocalist who was a great choice for an elegant dinner affair."

"At the actual party, his performance lent a certain ambience fitting to the special occasion we were celebrating. He is extremely talented & has a wonderful stage presence."

"Emiliano was absolutely amazing! He was even better live than on his samples! He has a wonderful personality, is extremely professional, and went above and beyond to accomodate our special song requests."

"Make sure you get Emiliano if you need an event with jazz or Italian music."

"He has an understanding and passion for his music, that clearly came across in his performance. The performance dazzled my guests and impressed me."

"His voice was amazing. His grasp of the music he was singing was right on. I really can't say enough about his performance the night of the party."

"Emiliano was amazing! So friendly and accommodating! Everyone loved him, the guitarist and the accordionist! He helped make our event a success."


An accomplished folk, jazz and classical performer, Emiliano is being considered as one of the finest interpreters of the Italian canzone popolare today. He is particularly devoted to revealing the wide scope of Italian musical heritage and is currently performing a song cycle called "Italian Songbook: 1,000 Years of Italian Life and Legends." The cycle celebrates timeless human themes of loves, laughter, and loss though a chronological anthology of popular songs written in Italy over the past millennium, and includes madrigals, tarantellas, and canzone popolare – all sung in their original dialects – as well as ballads, swing tunes, and film music by Ennio Moricone.

The 37 year old vocalist is one of the very few performers in the world interpreting the poignant work of legendary folk singer Roberto Murolo, the undisputed master of the canzone popolare napoletana, and son of the great 19th century poet Ernesto Murolo. He is currently at work on "Songs for Ernesto", an album dedicated to songs in Italian written to poetry of Ernesto Murolo, which has been featured in recent performances for the City University of New York, Providence WaterFire Festival, and the Bank of America Pavilion.

Last season he collaborated with Allesandra Belloni, the world renowned percussionist and expert in Southern Italian music, in "Spider Dance," a theatrical vocal and dance exploration of the Taranatella. In Italy, Mr. Loconsolo was the founder of Cantinajazz, a very popular program for years in Tuscany which explored the artistic relationship between jazz and wine through narration and performance.

In 2005 he was the subject of two radio specials broadcast on Radio Palermo in Buenos Aires and on Punto Radio Cascina from Pisa. His performances have also been heard on public radio in United States, Australia, and Russia.

Emiliano emigrated to the United States in 2002 upon receiving Berklee College of Music's international best talent scholarship and subsequently received a degree in Jazz Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.

I hesitate to give my honest opinion out of fear that once the rest of the world discovers Emiliano Loconsolo, I will never be able to hire him again. Emiliano and his accompanying musicians were outstanding. The mix of Italian classics with jazz was perfect for our event. Emiliano's style and originality breathed new life into Neapolitan folk classics. I strongly recommend Emiliano to anyone who is planning an Italian event or simply if you want to hear a young singer before he becomes a STAR. I'm not kidding...watch out Andrea Bocelli! I would be happy to provide additional information regarding this reference and can be reached at: marinellolaw@aol.com

Emiliano performed for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. He was perfect in his dual role as a Jazz Tenor, and Italian singer! We hired his Trio to sing mostly Italian songs. He was everything that I read about and expected- a sophisticated, professional vocalist who was a great choice for an elegant dinner affair. He was very personable, and helpful in trying to customize the music for my parents. He even spent time prior to his performance, speaking in Italian with my family. That went over great! If your looking for a refreshing young jazz vocalist who won't turn up the volume and turn off your guests, he's the man! Thanks Emiliano- Bravo! John F. Bethlehem, PA

Emiliano performed at my parents 50th anniversary party. From the beginning planning stage, he was already very friendly, helpful & professional. Wanting everything to be perfect, I had many questions & Emiliano was always eager to answer them. He made an extra effort to find sheet music for requested songs that were a little obscure. At the actual party, his perforamnce lent a certain ambience fitting to the special occasion we were celebrating. He is extremely talented & has a wonderful stage presence. He even welcomed my parents as they ventured to sing along with him on certain songs. Everyone at the party complimented him & several people even requested booking information. I myself asked him about any upcoming concerts; because of taking pictures & speaking to family members I hadn't seen in a while, I wasn't able to savor his performance as much as I would have liked too. I would definitely hire him again & highly recommend him to others. Thank you Emiliano!!!

Emiliano was absolutely amazing! He was even better live than on his samples! He has a wonderful personality, is extremely professional, and went above and beyond to accomodate our special song requests. His singing and choice of songs made the celebration even more special. Everyone at the party commented on how wonderful he was. He was perfect in every way and I will highly recommend him. We look forward to watching our video tape of the party just to hear him sing again! He is an A+ performer. I will definitely use him again for future functions I plan.

Emiliano was a perfect person for our event. We had a dinner and wanted some music to be played through the dinner and we booked someone else who was unprofessional and canceled at the last minute. I did not get back to Emiliano until a week before the event and within two days the contract were signed and he was ready to come up. When he arrived we were in a tough situation with the space and Emiliano made it work. If you can make sure you get Emiliano if you need an event with jazz or Italian music.

I have to say that myself and our guests were extremely complimentary of Emiliano's music. His voice was amazing. His grasp of the music he was singing was right on. I really can't say enought about his performance the night of the party. The accordian player, Corey, also played his heart out that night and never missed a beat. They both kept the party engaged in their music and even allowed my father-in-law; a long time jazz lover and trumpet player to have the microphone a couple of times. Really it was a great time had by all. Thank you and I hope to have the honor of hearing you again. Becky Gallo
