LUNA AKIRE

Luna Akire has always been about music and involved in music.

Being the daughter of a drummer and a fashion designer, she has always balanced her art between soul and aesthetics. She is an Italian at heart but a citizen of the world, having always lived between Milan, Italy and Tampa Bay, Florida. For years she has performed on beautiful stages and eventually shifted focus to songwriting. It wasn't long before her writing talent was noticed, quickly having gathered the recognition of Universal and signing a deal with them for "Hello Me", a song co-written with Australian star, Vanessa Amorosi. Collaborations and the opportunity to write with international songwriters and producers, such as Aleena Gibson and Alessandro Del Vecchio, came not long after. The meeting with Alessandro Del Vecchio, producer and musician for Frontiers Records, who boasts successful singles and records in the world of rock, lead to the creation of the album "Seasons", a collection of 12 original songs born to introduce the singer/songwriter Luna Akire; a journey into the different influences and artistic facets that represent this artist. "A hard rock attitude, with a melodic, pop influence", "deep lyrics that vocalize important and reflective ideas in a simple yet impactful way", are just a small description of "Seasons" and the artist herself. Luna Akire could absolutely be described as "the best kept secret talent" of the current musical world.

The record, produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, includes the presence of Bruce Gaitsch (Madonna, Richard Marx, Chicago), Janey Clewer (Ray Charles, George Benson) and the Italian musicians Marco Di Salvia and Nik Mazzucconi of Edge Of Forever and guitarist Andrea Seveso; the disc features 11 songs written by Luna Akire with Alessandro Del Vecchio, Best Friends which includes collaboration with Aleena Gibson and a completely rearranged and personalized cover of David Guetta's song “When Love Takes Over”. The album is written between Nashville, Milan, Tampa and the Tuscan countryside and is recorded at the Arc in Varese and Tampa at the Ivorytears Music Works Studios and Nashville, at the Addiction Studios of Jonathan Cain of Journey, and at Bruce's Gaitsch Frantic Studio. The album, thanks to the versatility of Luna Akire, also challenged the producer to work with a sound that pushed him into new territory, allowing the record to have the power of a rock record, but the gracefulness of the most widespread pop sounds, embracing everything you can imagine in the middle of these two worlds.

During the creation of the album, "Warriors" was born. A song that presents a powerful and profound concept, and the hope of rebirth.

"Warriors" lyrics could and would carry a universal message that led to the collaboration with Rosa Laricchiuta (Transiberian Orchestra), Caterina Nix (Chaos Magic) and Mizuho Lin (Semblant) who sang the song, respectively, in French, Spanish and Portuguese. "Warriors" becomes, in fact, "Eroi" in Italian, the first single by Luna Akire, extracted from "Seasons", an album released in the Autumn of 2020.
