The music of Antonio DiBartolomeo is as delicate as folk, dynamic as pop and psychedelia, and emotional as classical music. Strumming, swirling, crashing, and dissolving guitars, cello and viola washing thru the songs giving to a cryptic voice. Melancholy, introspective, fragile, and emotional. Original. Self produced, mixed, and recorded.
A classicist with a plaintive voice and a fondness for spectral balladry. Brooding, sentimental, melancholy.
