In Life There Is No Time to Waste: Sharing Stories with Professional Musician, Alessio Garavello
About the episode
In this episode, I talk with Alessio Garavello, a professional Italian guitarist, singer, songwriter, vocal coach, sound engineer and music producer based in London. Alessio has been working as a session musician for over two decades and has performed live all across Europe with A New Tomorrow, his hard rock band.
I first met Alessio in the UK in 2011. We worked together in a popular coffee chain shop and what immediately impressed me was his English pronunciation. He didn’t sound Italian at all. I didn’t think it was possible for an Italian to speak English without an Italian accent until I met him.
Another remarkable thing about Alessio is his sunny temperament. Although we were working in a very stressful and nerve-racking environment, I never heard him complain about anything. Never. He was always cheerful, positive and full of energy. His approach to life is just beautiful. I’m sure you’ll notice this when listening to him and I hope you’ll find his stories inspiring.
You’ll hear him talk about:
- the music industry in London
- how he learned English
- his rock band
- singing and how he learned to sing
- his songs
- his feelings when he performs live
- a photo of one of his concerts in Kyiv (photo below)
