For Immediate Release:
Toronto, ON - Hamilton-based vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Marcio Novelli has had a busy 2013 so far! He released his debut album 'It's Not An Excuse, It's A Reason,' had the premiere of his music documentary 'Walking Proof' at the Reel Indie Film Festival in Toronto, was nominated for 2 Awards at the 2013 Hamilton Music Awards and he's now heading to Halifax to kick-off an Eastern Canadian Tour on November 25th.
When it came time to record his debut full length album 'It's Not An Excuse, It's A Reason', Marcio Novelli managed to get the entire album recorded and mixed front-to-back in just 2 weeks. Overseeing writing, arrangement and composition while also taking care of vocals, guitars, bass, piano, keyboards, programming, strings and percussion, Novelli looked after nearly every musical aspect of the album's ten songs. And thanks to the enduring skills of powerhouse producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Jack's Mannequin) and engineer Nick Blagona (Green Day, The Police), it's hard not to take notice of this incredible debut album.
The 2 week process of recording his debut album was one that Novelli wanted to have documented. He enlisted the help of director Matthew Dorman and together they created a music documentary entitled 'Walking Proof', chronicling the creation of his first studio album. 'Walking Proof' is now available for purchase as a CD/DVD combo with 'It's Not An Excuse, It's A Reason' on Marcio's website. The documentary had it's premiere at the Reel Indie Film Festival in Toronto and received glowing reviews, including a 5 star review from Canadian Film Review.
Marcio Novelli has spent the past few years building up a considerable fanbase. His accomplishments include: winning Best Pop/Rock Recording at the 2009 Hamilton Music Awards for his previous EP 'Break Me' , frequent spins on internet powerhouse idobi Radio, Top 20 placement on campus radio, over eight million plays on his social networking platforms and a live webcast dubbed The Marcio Novelli Show bringing in one million viewers. Novelli recently released the video for 'Doctor Please' the album's first single and it's already received over 100,000 views after only being up for just over a month.
