Fanelli, italian born in Tunisia, came to France in the 60's with
his huge family to live a better life like many foreigners from
the South. This singer and guitar player met a beautiful spanish
girl in the summer of 1973, on holidays. She came to live with him
for the rest of her life. Eternal & faithful love exists sometimes.In
1978, they composed a bossa nova song to celebrate their love and
the birth of their first child: Marc..
Marc is 14 years
old. His dream 2 become soccer player for the Italian football team
ends when Black Music appears. Stevie Wonder & pop music don't
look like french immigrants sons. There's Hip Hop but G.No prefers
melody to sing his rap verses. With the New Jack Swing of Teddy
Riley, Bobby Brown, Intro, H-Town, Boyz 2 Men, Jodeci, R.Kelly,
he realizes what he needs to do in his life. Not enough money for
music lessons? This young nation singing with bagguys and amazing
voices make him believe he can do it his way, no matter what people
may think. He starts creating groups (Safyr), singing live etc..He's
from the very middle class and will need to find a job from his
17 to help his family while attending courses at the university.
Marc is "G.No"
or "GardeliNo", a bird in italian. He's not on MTV, he
feels jailed, but still sings cause it makes him fly very far. Thanks
to his job, he has traveled a lot. He loves people and finds in
music a true way of expressing social, and human relations. His
first album talks mainly about the end of a childhood. Every city
is like a new step in his life and Marrakech (Morroco) was the 1st
one in 2004. He produced it and sold it all alone with his guitarists
Jon & Dagon. His latin roots and his love for acoustic and hip
hop music are now his "griffe". After presenting a DVD
on french R'n'B (R'n'B Invasion, Warner), he started to write a
book about Black Music in 2006. At the same time Myspace became
the best place 4 musicians. That's where he met one of his idols:
Smoke E.Digglera from Playa. The famous soul voice from Playa (who
sang for Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Timbo, Jodeci, K.Sweat etc..) loved
his universal style (G.No sings italian, spanish, french, english),
invited him to Louisville (Ky) and signed him to his label Bitterweet..Lucky?
no. Work, Will & Faith..
influences mixed with True R'n'B. G.No wants Libertad. That's why
many albums will b released this year. Expression & Revolution
are the key words. With Smoke on his side, they feel ready to hit
the world. Support them if u feel them!!!
