STUDIO 3 – Scelgo Te

1 08 2011

http://www.facebook.com/studio3bandofficial

L’esordio della band STUDIO3, formata da Andrea Vetralla (in arte Vetro), Marco Venturini e Salvatore Valerio (in arte Gabriel) avviene nel 2006 con l’album “FORSE UN ANGELO”. Il loro primo lavoro discografico si rivela subito un successo e alla boyband il SILVER AWARD, disco d’argento per le oltre 30.000 copie vendute. Questo è l’inizio di una carriera artistica che cresce e si consolida anno dopo anno.
Nel 2007 con il secondo album “LENTAMENTE”, inizia la loro esperienza live in giro per l’Italia: un tour che li ha avvicinati al meraviglioso mondo dei fans, i quali nel corso degli anni diventeranno sempre più importanti all’interno della loro maturità umana oltre che artistica.
Il 2008 porta alla realizzazione del terzo album “INCONTENIBILE”, la cui promozione, ancora una volta, inizia nel migliore dei modi: il singolo di lancio “AMORE INCONTENIBILE” viene trasmesso con grandi riscontri, anticipando il posizionamento dell’album INCONTENIBILE che entra sin da subito nelle classifiche di vendita.
Nel 2009 gli STUDIO3 danno alla luce la loro prima raccolta: un album doppio con i brani di maggiore successo, alcuni dei quali cantati in spagnolo e due inediti, tra cui “NON DEVE MANCARE”, brano che ha dato il titolo all’album e che ha dato il nome alla loro tournèe estiva del 2009.
Il 2010 è sicuramente un anno importantissimo per gli STUDIO3: realizzano il loro quinto album dal titolo “RESPIRO”. Il singolo di lancio, “IL MIO RESPIRO”, viene programmato, come sempre, dai più importanti network radiofonici italiani, e l’album entra immediatamente in classifica di vendita, dove permane costantemente per mesi.
Di tutti i dischi gli STUDIO3 hanno scritto integralmente musiche e testi delle loro canzoni.
Ultimamente gli STUDIO3 hanno firmato con la Rosso Al Tramonto Edizioni Musicali di Antonio e Sabatino Salvati.

Gli Studio3, con “Scelgo Te”, sono i primi in assoluto a rappresentare per la seconda volta l’Italia nel The Countdown Song  Contest dopo Settembre 2008.
