Once upon a time there was a boy, born
at the end of the 1960s, who as a child listened to
Christie, the British band which reached global success
with Yellow River.
Well, that same boy (located in Verona,
but who lived in Brescia for a long time) is a brother of
Max Gabanizza, who's been playing bass in our region for
years now and with excellent results.
Lorenzo has never stopped drawing inspiration
from Christie, and in particular from the leader
"I started out as a drummer, in the
early 80's, and I continued to listen to Christie,
even though they broke up in 1976," he said.
The recent contact between Lorenzo and
Jeff has its origins from a painful event for the Italian
musician, the disappearance of his mother.
"I imagined writing one song for
her, and I tried to reach out to Jeff, because the best
way to pay homage to her was to have him involved on the
project," he said.
"I have found in Jeff understanding
and humanity, to the point that Jeff himself then has involved

The first fruit of this unusual synergy
was the single "You're
Not There", a timeless rock ballad which
has obtained excellent results abroad (reaching the first
position on iTunes in South Africa).
Soon, on July 10, the second effort will be released, still
composed by Lorenzo, with the charismatic presence of Jeff
"I Guess I
Am The Only One" has been recorded between Italy,
Great Britain and the USA.
"It is a song focused on the way
in which today's society ostraciSes who is not aligned,
who is considered different," Lorenzo said.
He hopes, sooner or later, for a European
live tour for the project, and maybe "the packaging
of an album", although for now prefers releasing singles,
because "this is what the market wants".
Certainly, the new work can count on further
star guests: apart from musicians of the calibre of Rusty
Wright, Charles Lydon, Paul Fenton and Kev Moore, it 's
mixed and mastered by Greg Calbi (winner of various Grammys)
and Steve Fallone (a Grammy for Lady Gaga's latest album).
