Following the singles “Zanzare” and “Barocco”, Chiaré is the self-titled debut album from songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Chiaré, aka Chiara Ianniciello, the latest recipient of the Bianca D’Aponte Award for emerging Italian singer-songwriters.

The album, which will be out on April 16th, contains eight atmospheric and intimate tracks where Chiara’s warm and gentle voice weaves snapshots from her feelings and her personal story over retro-flavoured, jazz-infused arrangements that are reminiscent of some of Italy’s finest singer-songwriters (Lucio Battisti and Pino Daniele in particular).

“It all started about three years ago,” says Chiara. “Ernesto Massimino Voza and I started from a sound that somehow wasn’t really me, and after a long process of trial and error, we finally found what seemed to be right for me. Peppe Maiellano, who arranged all the music, brought it full circle. The album has a common thread: love. Almost all of the songs are about strategic love, the fear of freely loving someone and the frustration at not being able to get out of an on-and-off relationship that made me suffer, but that I’ve tried to narrate with some irony. If my writing were an artistic movement, it would be naturalism. I drew a lot of inspiration from Pino Daniele, Eduardo De Crescenzo, and Lucio Battisti, while trying to develop my own personal, authentic style.”

Chiara holds a diploma in jazz singing and is now completing her studies in classical double bass. In her debut album she uses both standard Italian and the Neapolitan dialect, mixing jazz, soul and R’n’B. Modernity and tradition come together, creating a delicate yet irresistible sound.
