A Singer/Songwriter/Producer and Digital Marketing leader – all rolled into one; Gaetano brings a unique blend of raw talent and passion for music merged with business experience to a crossroad, making him a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the coin.
Gaetano has produced records for some of the biggest names in urban music; Fat Joe, Shaggy, Ryan Leslie, and Bobby V, to name a few.
In the business world, Gaetano has built a reputation as one of the top marketing / SEO consultants in the industry; earning results for VC backed tech startups all the way to Fortune 500 brands.
Gaetano was the marketing mastermind behind the acquisition of Sales Hacker – in which he grew the company by over 400% and helped them get acquired by Outreach.io.
Gaetano attributes his New York City upbringing as an influential element to his success:
“I’m an Italian from the Bronx, New York ― one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world. My family came here with nothing. It helped me build work ethic, character, respect for others, and a strong sense of self-awareness.”
At the tender age of 6 years old, Gaetano recorded “O Paese Di O’Sole”, his first time ever being in the studio.
“World music has been my primary influence. When I was a kid, I’d listen to the Italian classics. You know, those old-school Napoletano songs with tons of heartache and pain behind them. Most of that music is written in a minor key, specifically A minor and D minor; two great keys for learning soul music.”
Gaetano recently payed homage to his roots in a rendition of the Italian classic, “Te Voglio Bene.”
Following that, Gaetano acquired deeper influence from the all-time greats. Carlos Santana, Bob Marley – to Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, J Balvin, Usher, and Pharrell.
Another major influence in Gaetano’s life was his grandmother, Luisa. She passed away in 2015 after a 20+ year battle with cancer; despite such a devastating loss, a beautiful tribute song, “Angel Back”, was born in her memory.
In 2019, Gaetano relocated to Miami, FL and released his new single, “I Gave You Love” featuring grammy award winning producer and songwriter, K-Quick.
Gaetano’s debut EP “Fade Away,” features production from Grammy Award Winning producer/songwriter Kaleb “K Quick” Rollins. The project also includes self-produced/written tracks from Gaetano.
There’s a soulful and honest vibe carried throughout the entire album, and anyone who’s been on either side of love can relate and understand where Gaetano is coming from in his music.
His sophomore EP “Acoustix,” is an acoustic, duet-influenced project. Listeners can anticipate a swooning falsetto, beautiful harmonies, melodic guitar solos, and overall a well-produced piece of authentic music that comes from the soul. Download both albums for free here!
