Artist Biography

Le Folli Arie become a reality in 2012. The band is made of four musicians living in Milan that have a huge live experience. They all have worked in various musical projects and share a common love for music from the 70's (Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, PFM, Banco di Mutuo Soccorso, Area,...). They have also been influenced by grunge, pop, latin, funk, jazz, heavy metal. The clash and melt of all these musical influences gave birth to Le Folli Arie's unique style.
The process of making the band sound whole and unique required 2 years of labor-intensive work.
Once you listen throughout the album you can perceive the binding that gathers the 13 tracks together.
The listener is able to experience many extremely different atmospheres and emotional episodes and to appreciate a deep sense of coherence throughout the entire listening experience.
That's why defining Le Folli Arie's style is not a simple task: it could be prog music dressed as pop or the exact opposite.
 
In a world dominated by media where the key word is appearance, Le Folli Arie take a brave and anacronistic choice: you will be able to see them only during their live shows.
There will be no official photo shooting sessions, they will not appear neither in their video clips nor on their cd booklet, promotional posters and so on... They would rather release written interviews or be interviewed on the phone whenever that is feasible.
The utopic point behind this choice is to communicate with their fans through their artistic means only avoiding any other interference as much as possible.
There will be no void in the visual compartment though. Matteo Compagnoni, (www.facebook.com/MatCompArt) already responsible for the CD artwork, will tell Le Folli Arie world,
through his surreal and visionary, evocative and disturbing drawings.
 
Le Folli Arie”, Simone Corazzari (lead vocals, guitars, author and producer), Massimiliano Masciari (bass and steel drum), Francesco Meles (drums and percussions) and Marco Antonio Cerioli (keyboards and vocals) trusted the mixing and mastering of their album with Lorenzo Cazzaniga, one of the best italian producer (Claudio Baglioni, Lucio Dalla, Fabrizio De André, Ray Charles, Sting, Mina, Pfm, Pooh, Vasco Rossi,...). Lorenzo is the last and most precious piece of the complex puzzle which is Le Folli Arie's sound. (here you can find CD credits: www.lefolliarie.com/doc/credits.pdf).
 
Making their own way through echoes of Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Porcupine Tree, Lucio Battisti, PFM (and many more...) Le Folli Arie's first work is a true musical voyage you could easily get lost into, that gently flows with no discrepancies; sounding almost "concept"!
 
Le Folli Arie is on the run!

The Milanese prog-pop band Le Folli Arie, considered to be one of the most interesting new acts of the Italian indie scene, after the success of the first single in English “It's not easy” and of the first 3 Italian singles, releases the video of the second single in English “Shot in the dark”.
 
Written by Simone Corazzari, produced by Simone Corazzari in collaboration with Lorenzo Cazzaniga (Ray Charles, Sting, REM, Claudio Baglioni, Lucio Dalla, Fabrizio De André, Mina, PFM, Pooh, Vasco Rossi,...) and arranged by Le Folli Arie, it's a song that better represents the rich and variegated sound of the band.
It isn't the usual love story with a sad end, but it tells about the fear/hope of the change, how to accept it and how to be able to take a shot in the dark without any fear. Everything that produces a change is neither good nor bad itself. Actually, maybe, it is just a chance to evolve, hopefully in a better way.
 
The video is powerful, poetic and fascinating. It is directed by Filippo Pax and the main actress is the beautiful suicide girl Ultima Suicide. Here's the link: https://youtu.be/_P9zexRIUts
 
In the meantime LFA are presenting their album in Italian live clubs.

Defining Le Folli Arie's style is not a simple task: it could be prog music dressed as pop or the exact opposite.
In this first year Le Folli Arie have been promoting the album through a tour and radio and tv interviews, mainly in Italy. They have issued three videos in Italian and one in English. Their online and offline followers are constantly increasing. Several positive reviews have been published in Italy as well as abroad.
