BIO Lorenzo Bon

Singer, Songwriter, Frontman,

Lorenzo Bon was born in Ancona on 9th September 1978.

Singing and playing his guitar have been, and actually are, his natural forms of expression.

He comes from a long-standing musical tradition, has a matter of fact his father is a multi-instrumentalist and his grandfather was a trumpeter.

They have transmitted him a great passion for music since he was a child.

In the long run he felt the need to transfer his deep emotional vibrations in lyrics and songs.

This authentic vocation was accompanied by long years of study and improvement, both on vocal technique and on the control of rhythm, complemented by the study of over a thousand songs in any genre of music, both Italian and International.

He especially focused on the research of sound and vocal utterances following the theories of Demetrio Stratos.

His rare tone as bass- baritone gives him the possibility to sing in a soft intimate style like a crooner and enables him to produce a wide range of frequencies that allows him to sing any musical genre.

He can thus interpret and customize in his performances, famous evergreen songs from Sinatra to; Lou Rawls, James Brown, Ray Charles and many others.

Today, after so much work, his voice has arrived to a warm and scratched sound, which is particularly suited to jazz, soul and funk.

During his collaborations with some of the most important Masters pioneers of Italian Jazz ( Massimo Moriconi, Renato Sellani ,etc. ) and other international musicians, he has ideated some musical projects that he still brings forward.

They are calibrated to his tones of voice and are driven by his constant desire to support and to pass on the history and emotions of what he calls “Beautiful Music”.
