NYC-based electronic pop singer Cristiano creates a rich tapestry of sound, combining mind-bending LED effects with soaring vocals and chest-thumping dance grooves, whipping audiences into a partying frenzy with a unique sensory experience. He has played to packed houses at some of the city’s finest venues, including Irving Plaza and The Highline Ballroom, performing with longtime producer Thomas Mester on guitar and synths, and drummer Rob Mitzner.
A native of Italy, Cristiano appeared in TV commercials, dance productions and musical performances from a young age, always dreaming of a singing career in America. After moving to New York in 2012, he met producer Mester and created his first solo release “Everything is Beautiful Under the Sun”. A potent statement about life and love, the album’s catchy hooks, pulsating dance grooves and powerful vocals garnered critical acclaim. Shortly thereafter, Cristiano began collaborating with famed Broadway costume designer David Crittenden to incorporate LED lighting and multi-media into his live concerts. The pair joined forces to create a custom LED T-shirt which is meticulously programmed to sync with the band’s live performance.
These elements have taken Cristiano’s show to new heights, and the future is bright for this rising star. His innovative 360 music videos have garnered over 140,000 views on YouTube, and his video “Exvolver” was nominated for the 2017 Asia Web Awards and won the first place. He also recently spearheaded the documentary “Why Not me”, and appeared in TV commercials for Budweiser and New York Bakery. He is collaborating with Mester and Crittenden on a new album. They had a quiet success in New York City in 2017 playing at Live Nation venues including Highline Ballroom and Irving Plaza. Next step will be a corresponding international tour throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
