Italian Indie Folk Artist 'An Early Bird' Releases New Single
By Heiko Wessels.
Self-taught multi-instrumentalist An Early Bird releases his new single "Under My Skin“, a fantastic Indie Folk anthem about the power of love.
"Love grows underneath the skin just like a flower coming out from the ground. Love is so powerful that it creates a bond even between those who apparently living on different planets." - An Early Bird
Growing up in Naples, in the south of Italy, Stefano De Stefano (this is the name behind the project) cut his teeth on the Italian music circuit with a local band before going solo: the debut album "Of Ghosts & Marvels“ was released in October 2018 followed by the EP "In Depths“ in September 2019.
An Early Bird has been touring extensively across Europe sharing stages alongside artists like Joshua Radin, Jake Bugg, S. Carey, Stu Larsen, Grant-Lee Phillips and Dan Owen.
The album "Echoes Of Unspoken Words“ (2020), featuring a bunch of songs of which some have been included in editorial Spotify playlists, continues a path of exploring what has progressively moved the songwriter from the early folk sounds to a richer and multi-layered sonic dimension. With the pandemic making touring impossible, this album has had a short life, so the idea to record a new one has come suddenly but with urgency.
It was the hour of birth of "Diviner", the artist's third album, which was produced by Stefano Bruno and will be released in summer 2021 via Greywood Records. On this album An Early Bird stops being afraid of showing his pop side when creating folk songs. "Under My Skin“ is the album’s third single and a captivating foretaste of a new musical universe.
