Odette Di Maio
Milanese songwriter Odette recorded 2 albums, starred in several videoclips and has been touring intensively with Italian rock band SOON, in the alternative music circuit during mid-90s. Her adventurous nature brought her to perform in Singapore, USA, London, Brussels and Antwerp. Odette has also been touring all over Italy for more than a decade with her acoustic show “L’America di Odette”, a personal synthesis of the best rock, folk and pop songs from USA.
She has also been collaborating with several other artists: with the American songwriter Ben Slavin she founded the folk duo THE MARCH in 2002 and toured the US East Coast; she sang the beautiful single “Nothing else matters”, also appearing in the TV series CSI Miami and TV ads for the electronic duo Bedroom Rockers. Odette also recorded the song “Faith” for the nu-jazz artist from Austria Parov Stelar, and wrote and sang for German artist Schiller, who wanted her as a guest in his latest album “Atemlos”. She also collaborated with Italian Pilot Jazou for their track “December”, and sang for her friend from Paris Lorbi, with whom she co-wrote all their debut album “Ring”.
Odette met Jan in 2004: “I would never have thought that from this casual encounter such a great project would result. Miss O brought out the best of me, artistically speaking, and left me the complete freedom to write lyrics, sometimes even bizarre and esoteric. It has also taught me that I could express deeper emotions with a whisper that singing out loud.”
