Lauded Vocalist Roberto Iarussi Crosses Classical Divide With Highly Anticipated Official Debut Recording 'I Believe' Recorded With The London Symphony Orchestra

Roberto Iarussi is a classically trained singer whose extraordinary vocal talent, and musical sensibilities enable him to perform across a wide variety of musical

genres. Though recognized as an Opera Singer, the second generation Italo American found his inspiration from great singers of many different musical styles, most

notably Barbra Streisand, to whom Iarussi dedicates his recently completed milestone recording, entitled 'I BELIEVE' which was recorded with London Symphony Orchestra.

the London Symphony Orchestra, this collaboration redefines the essence of creativity and beauty within the cross-over genre.

The project features both new arrangements of cover material and original selections written by Jorge Calandrelli in collaboration with other celebrated artists such

as song writer/producer Walter Afanasieff, (who among other credits received a Grammy Award in the Record of the Year category for producing "My Heart Will Go On" by

Celine Dion, and the 2000 Grammy Award for Non-Classical Producer of the Year), Claudia Brant, Jorgen Elofsson and Marco Marinangeli.

One track, the popular jazz standard 'I Wish you Love' is sung in the songs original French language and features the playing of celebrated Trumpeter, Arturo Sandoval.

Iarussi's vocals were mixed by engineer Eric Schilling.

The title track 'I Believe' was purposely chosen as a testament to Iarussi's belief that all people can succeed despite seemingly insurmountable adversity, and it is

his hope that his music and story will inspire and encourage those who hear it.

Global Piano Sensation And Visionary Artist Fiona Joy Caps A Breakthrough Year With Two IMA Nominations

The Independent Music Gala @ Lincoln Center will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in New York City at the prestigious Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The day-long music event for fans and industry will stream live performances from IMA artists. The winners of The 15th IMAs will be announced from the stage.

Signature - Synchronicity was co-produced by new age legend and Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman (who also lends his trademark acoustic guitar), Tom Eaton and James Englund. Fiona Joy is currently with Ackerman's Imaginary Road team in Vermont working on an upcoming project, and exploring New York concert opportunities for 2017.

Earlier this year, Fiona Joy completed her second highly successful "Piano Angel" tour of China, contributed to the newly released peace album Action Moves People United, and recorded a new Hi-Res album with Blue Coast Records. Last week, she recorded two concerts for the highly-acclaimed PRI radio show "ECHOES" with John Diliberto, which will air in the coming weeks and months. "ECHOES" is a daily two-hour radio program featuring a soundscape of ambient, space, electronic and new age music.

Fiona Joy has also submitted Signature - Synchronicity to the 59th Grammy Awards for New Age album consideration. Listen at

Signature - Synchronicity is actually "part two" of her critically-acclaimed Signature Collection, which began as a true-story concept, and grew into a musical exploration spanning the audiophile, new age, piano and contemporary instrumental markets. The first album in the series is Signature - Solo (Tiny Island Music), including ten songs recorded by Cookie Marenco for an audiophile experience; it became the first solo piano album to reach #1 on the ZMR International Airplay charts since the legendary pianist George Winston.

Fiona Joy says the series began as a very personal exploration of how the deteriorating "signature" bone in her left hand (caused by a degenerative bone disease) could affect her life and music. "Everything I write is conceptually derived. Signature was always about my left hand," she explains, "and the word 慡ynchronicity' means the coming together of inner and outer events - signifying the collaborative spirit and magic involved in working as a team, which is what we're sharing on the new album."

"I wanted to do a solo version of the songs in a single take, as a live recording, and then show the magic of what you can do in the studio with the same songs," the pianist adds. "Same music, two different worlds. I think it's interesting for the audience to hear what difference you can make to a song. Take the song 慓race,' for example. It has been recorded as a solo, an acoustic vocal, on flute, as chill, and as an Indian/South African version for a GRAMMY-winning album in 2015. Note for note, it's the same song, but a totally different experience in each recording! That fascinates me."

Independent Music Awards (IMA) producer MRG (Music Resource Group) accepts hundreds of submission, choosing only five to compete in the final New Age category. Coincidentally, Lawrence Blatt - one of Fiona Joy's competitors in the New Age category - is also her band mate in the new group, FLOW. Another FLOW member, horn player Jeff Oster, is nominated in the Best Live Performance Category. FLOW (drawn from the artists' initials) will be releasing their first album together in late 2017.

The IMA winners will be selected by blue-ribbon panels of top recording artists that include: Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, Slayer, The Kills, Lalah Hathaway, Meshell Ndegeocello, Sepultura, Dido, Warren Haynes (Government Mule), Suzanne Vega, Gus Unger-Hamilton (alt-J), Shelby Lynne; previous IMA winners including Amy Lee (Evanescence), The Show Ponies, Noshir Mody, Rozina Pátkai and Ingrid Gerdes, among many others; and influential press and talent buyers from the Americas, Europe and Pacific Rim.

Fiona Joy and Lawrence Blatt will attend the IMA awards ceremony Independent Music Party on November 12th at Lincoln Center in NYC.

Signature - Synchronicity is available at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and all digital platforms. Please visit for music, videos and images, also at
