We are proud to announce that we have signed the subpublishing of Talisco, one of the most interesting upcoming artists in Europe!
The first single extracted from the album "RUN" (out this autumn on Time Records) is titled "YOUR WISH". It has already reached the Top 50 Italian airplay chart and is currently climbing also the digital charts.
"YOUR WISH" has also been included into the official soundtrack of "3 Days To Kill", the new movie performed by the superstar Kevin Costner.
TALISCO OFFICIAL BIO
Forget about the guide, its shortcuts, its tendency to go the popular route. Talisco has opted for new musical territory, digging deeper into electro-folk experiments, always searching for more. We had met him somewhere between the lowlands of Americana and downtown folk rock, through his first EP My Home. Since then, the mysterious dark-haired artist and his angel voice have added a few cases to the sixchord guitar and quite a few miles to the meter. His first album, Run, illustrates an escape, the unavoidable departure when you get into a routine, that urge to get away. The mad rush of a sensitive soul. In this new road-trip, the parisian songwriter travels through somptuous sets, that never ending land which he loves to put into music. No need to go for a caved exile, Talisco locked himself in his own home studio to give life to this collection of imaginary tales. On paper, he goes for ellipes and metaphores ; as for the sound, it has to be raggety : « I love the raw sounds of the Fender Telecaster ». He immediately adds that the weapon doesn’t really matter : « in the studio, I like to twist the sounds, manipulate them and put them through different compressors and old pre-amps, I mess around with them, try to work them to create my own sound canvases », the musical alchemist says enthusiastically. It’s there, in the middle of the jacks, the microphones and the electro-Legos, on his multi-channel workbench, that he has refined his musical nuggets, far from the ready-to-bake recipes and formatted speeches : « What’s the use in conceptualizing the music ? My country is imaginary, dreamy and lyrical ». No logo. Run could be a collection of pictures. Talisco walks through the great spaces, its silences and hypnotic mid-tempos, before letting the chords, the beats and the vocals explode when the city lights finally prevail. Talisco is running, through the lacy western lowlands and the California deserts which he pierces with electrical cracks and vintage reverbs. The songwriter jumps from one train to the other, just as he does with musical genres. He looks to other horizons, like British rock (« Bring me back »), nurturing « the wide gap between the contemplative mood of tracks such as the ballad « So old » - I like to float over the fray, put some distance to observe what is going to happen – and dark melancholic atmospheres ». This is the chiaroscuro of an enlightened artist, somewhere between the molotov cocktails of a garage band and the soaring lyricism of Jeff Buckley. That would be enough to have Tarantino lerk around for his next original soundtrack on burger-obsessed hitmen or vintage car loving lady killers. To summarize, he could illustrate any kind of cinematographic alien. True electro rock anthem, « The keys » could be the soundtrack to the second part of Larry Clark’s « Kids », the folk volute « Lovely » could illustrate Sean Penn’s « Into the wild ». Finally, in « Reborn », we even catch a glimpse of that « tricky romantic » (as quoted by Les Inrocks) on the stage of an unlikely suburban theatre, throwing his own piano and guitar pop corn to the audience. Run, live, turn up the sound. One track after the other, we look at the shots. Inspired by the cinema, the author – a big fan of Tim Burton’s « Sleepy Hollow » and David Lynch’s « Mulholland drive » - draws up storyboards. And through these surprising musical short films, we are left longing for a wild ride.

La storia di Antonio Marrapese, conosciuto artisticamente con il nome Travis Cold, è quella di un ragazzo italo-americano di 23 anni che ama la musica all’ennesima potenza e si esprime con essa a 360°. Travis suona la chitarra fin da piccolo quando viveva con i genitori a Boston. A quindici anni si trasferisce a Londra per studiare al Queen Mary College dove ha rifinito le sue abilità musicali sperimentando nuovi generi. A sedici anni inizia a suonare in alcuni locali di Londra come chitarrista e, da lì a poco, Travis inizia a comporre le sue prime canzoni.
La sua musica è stata influenzata per la maggior parte da artisti come John Mayer, Justin Taylor, Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan. A diciotto anni rientra per un breve periodo in Italia, dove incontra il produttore Lorenzo Sebastiani. Travis torna in America, vivendo tra New York e Boston e nonostante abiti oltreoceano, mantiene vivi i rapporti con Lorenzo e a gennaio 2012 i due iniziano un'attiva collaborazione che riporta Travis in Italia per la registrazione del suo primo album intitolato "Life In A Day", la cui uscita è prevista nel 2013. L’intero album è stato masterizzato da Tom Coyne (Adele, PSY, Maroon5, Beyoncé, Usher, One Direction...) agli studi Sterling Sounds di New York.
Il video di “Life In A Day”, diretto da Stefano Bertelli, racconta la storia di un robottino che gira il mondo in un solo giorno, e per realizzare lo shooting Travis, il regista e i suoi assistenti hanno viaggiato per circa un mese tra Islanda, Londra, Spagna e Venezia, visitando luoghi dove la natura mantiene ancora intatto il suo lato magico o selvaggio (come il geyser “Geysir” in Islanda).
La poesia delle immagini e la bellezza del brano hanno catturato subito l'attenzione, e in una sola settimana il video ha totalizzato oltre 1 milione di views su YouTube, diventando il più visualizzato in venti nazioni.
In queste ore il video ha raggiunto la soglia dei 2 milioni di visualizzazioni!
“Life In A Day” è il primo singolo di Travis Cold che Time Records ha firmato per il mondo e sarà pubblicato su iTunes il 21 Dicembre 2012, stesso giorno del lancio in tutte le radio italiane!
