Album release party for KILLING CARTISANO aka Roberta Cartisano, Italian multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and session-musician. Influenced by psychedelic folk-rock, orchestral pop, cinematic funk and trip hop, her last album received rave reviews in her native Italy, where she was called ‘a pioneer of visionary sound’. Her original song-writing is highly personal and vivid, encapsulating the term ‘emotional rock’.
After getting in touch with SAN FRANCISCO’s underground music scene during her travels, inspired by Bay Area vibes Roberta morphed into Killing Cartisano. K.C. is produced by Bay Area producer George S. Rosenthal and Roberta together. A hybrid of Roberta’s musical roots andall SAN FRANCISCO bands. Rosenthal also gathered some of the best local session musicians to perform Roberta’s arrangements, giving a west- coast vibe to the record.
“It’s the ‘Frisco energy of an old, short-on-melatonin, rock-girl from Southern Europe” says Cartisano.
KC will lunch the album with 5 piece band: psychedelic folk-tronic rock with strings and synth.
“A hook-laden hypnotic West Coast psychedelic vibe that just sucks you in” – Folk Radio UK
