Info for Sensual Elegance
Gabrielle Chiararo is one of Italian producer Giacomo Bondi's most successful discoveries. They met when he was looking for a backing vocalist who could sing in Portuguese on Brazilian Jim Porto's 2005 release, 'Diga'. Their collaboration has been constant ever since. He soon composed and produced JAZZ SCHEMA, her first solo album of Nu-Jazz/Lounge music.
Together with a group of important Brazilian artists and the composer, Roberto Picerni, they put this album together, entirely recorded in Italy at his Rome studios. Even before finishing her album in January 2006, two of her songs 'Tango Matto' and 'Amore Mio' were selected respectively for the compilations by sunsweptmusic 'Neo Tango' and 'Amore Mio. Her songs have now been included on over 60 compilations worldwide. Bondi and Chiararo have recently completed her second album “Sensual Elegance”, comprised of ten original tracks and five covers in English, French and Italian.
Born in Paris, Gabrielle is half-French, half-Italian-American and was raised in France and America. Her love of singing began early, listening to such artists as Aznavour, Cocciante, Julien Clerc, Peter, Paul and Mary, the Beach Boys, Jackie Wilson and the Beatles. At school, she participated in plays, musicals, talent shows and choirs until she reached university where she began to take voice lessons, studying operatic arias. She continued with the choir and joined Henry's VIII, an acappella group with whom she recorded her first album. During her college years, she also formed a jazz ensemble called the Jazz Cats in which she was the soloist. Her studies brought her from New York to Florence, where she pursued her love of the Italian language and its cinema. She then attended drama school in London, where she continued with her singing lessons and branched out to musicals and jazz technique. Her musical interests range from traditional Chanson Francaise, 1940s jazz standards, tango, Doo Wop, Bossa nova, 60s rock n roll, 80s new wave, to modern music. She has also recorded an album “Acoustic Voice and Guitar” with her guitarist, Marco Minnucci, under the duo’s name “Flor de Lis” available from believemusic.com. Their music ranges from bossa nova, South American songs in Spanish and Portuguese, easy listening favorites to original songs which Minnucci composes and to which she writes the lyrics. She has also recently formed a jazz trio under the name “The Jazzmins” which performs jazz standards. Gabrielle has worked as a professional actress and singer in the U.S., England and Italy and is now part of the English and French language voice over community in Rome and continues to act be it on stage or before the cameras. Don't be surprised if one day you spot Gabrielle on the metro in Rome singing along to a song by Caetano Veloso, Blossom Dearie, Sam Cooke, or the E42, or even writing the lyrics to her next song, be it pop, lounge, jazz or bossa.
