When producer Humberto Gatica ears first met Il Volo he was convinced that their voices were fake.
“The very first time I heard Il Volo, I thought their voices were fake,” he explained, “…I thought, there’s no way that these young boys could sound like this.”
It’s true. Il Volo has been making a lot of music insiders believers ever since they appeared on an Italian singing competition in 2009. Now, fans can get a chance to meet the young men behind the big voices — Piero Barone (17), Ignazio Boschetto (16) and Gianluca Ginoble (16) — in a new video piece that showcases a few tracks from their upcoming U.S. debut.
Il Volo’s self-titled album, a mix of re-imagined classics and original music, hits stores on May 17. Visit IlVoloMusic.com for more information.
