Gianni Paci may be young, but he has already amassed significant critical acclaim. Tiger Beat writes, "[Gianni] will be bursting onto the mainstream music scene soon," while Mike Ragogna of The Huffington Post suggests, "[Gianni's] indie pop/rock meets '60s roll makes for a Buddy Holly-played-through-a-Rolling Stones-amp experience." Performer Magazine just recently featured him on their cover.
A student of Musicology at NYU, Paci is no stranger to learning from the greats, his songwriting boasting raw talent and a profound understanding of the history of music. Always eager for a different kind of lesson, Napolitano has already shared the stage with the likes of Ace Frehley (KISS), Steven Adler (Guns N Roses), Mike Starr (Alice in Chains) and The Butthole Surfers. Gianni Paci is at work on his debut album with Eren Cannata in Glen Cove, NY, currently slated for release next year.
"[Gianni] will be bursting onto the mainstream music scene soon." -Tiger Beat
"Gianni’s been likened to Buddy Holly and it’s appropriate, not in the timbre of his voice but in the mannerisms and the writing, airy and innocently heart-on-sleeve." -Darryl Norrell, Aquarian Weekly
"The Harrison & McCartney visual comparisons are of course obvious, it`s an uncanny photo-fit and a double bonus for this up & coming song-writing talent." -Andy, Mojophenia
"Napolitano’s lyrical narrative is well beyond his years." -David Dusty, No Depression: The Roots Music Authority
