MiodioThe band Miodio formed in the winter of 2002 and consists of five members: Nicola Della Valle (lead vocals) Paolo Macina (Guitars) Andrea Marco Pollice "Polly" (Bass and Programming) Francesco Sancisi (Keyboards and Programming) and Alessandro Gobbi (Drums).
In 2006 their first EP was released containing five tracks. It was produced by the label “Acanto” owned by the producer and composer Andrea Felli. In 2007 they entered into an exclusive contract with Opera Prima, a record label established by Andrea Felli, Massimo Nardi e Roberto Fiacchini, releasing there first single It's Ok, which is still played by more than a hundred national radio stations. The song has been also included in the soundtrack of the movie Il Soffio dell’Anima coming soon to theatres nationwide and is listed in the catalogue of the prestigious and renowned iTunes Store.
The name of the band is provocative and impressive but hides a deep reflection: "You must learn to see how much you hate yourself until you look at yourself in the mirror and see the reflection of your thoughts, you will use every person you meet as a mirror reflecting what you think of yourself…"
"Carefully selected sounds together with dynamic and stirring lyrics" are the main features of an already multi-awarded project. Miodio’s music is a fusion of state-of-the-art instruments, cutting-edge technology, pushy but always refined electronic sounds and a breathtaking stage act delivering a strong emotional impact. Miodio can list numerous live participations: participation in the MpZero Tour 2007 as supporters in the Olympic Stadium, Rome; San Siro Stadium, Milan; Euganeo Stadium, Padua; Franchi Stadium, Florence; Victory Stadium, Bari; Velodrome, Palermo. Another highlight was the participation in the famous TV program Matinée, on the channel RAI 2. Miodio are also the winners of the 17th edition of San Marino Festival as well as the winners of the prize 'Viva Music' and 'Best Original Song' at the 2006 Arts Festival in Bologna. They also represented San Marino at the 12th Biennial of Young Artists of Europe held in Naples, where the band presented a 30-minute filmshot, edited and produced by themselves and praised by an international jury.
At the moment, the band is recording their album containing eleven tracks, which will be released in the summer of 2008.
