WORDS...

"There are albums that sound like little classics at first listen. It is not the unfortunately frequent feeling of "already heard", rather the perception of solidity and authoritativeness that elevates the music above the average, the fashion, the background noise.

"Dearest Marco,

your album is such a breathe of fresh air , a bountiful surprise, full of treasure!

The songs are heartfelt reflections, the guitar playing and sound 100% original, I have never heard this sound, it's not just the guitar, the amplifier the stings.....it's your fingers, your soul.

The way you have used your voice to sing the melodies with the guitar, these make me so happy to listen to.

Your singing, your voice is totally at home in this environment, The energetic ad libs , it's a live gig! It's real, not studio laboured, I hear all these things. But most of all I hear your soul, your connection with your instrument to put passion into music and lyrics on to tape (audio files!).

Stunning".

"Marco Schnabl’s new album is a trip. A sunny day, passenger seat’s empty, just some cans and spare food, towards an unknown destination. Doesn’t matter where to. Just going, hitting the road and letting what we’ve held back for an entire life go. A classic album, oozing America. The fact that it’s from an Italian singer songwriter is astonishing. Have a good trip, Marco, the road is straight, the tank is full, the music is right…what else do you need?"

"Il nuovo album di Marco Schnabl è un viaggio, in un giorno assolato, il sedile a fianco vuoto, solo qualche lattina e qualche provvista verso una destinazione ignota. Poco importa la direzione, importa invece andare, partire e lasciare accadere quello che, forse per una vita, abbiamo trattenuto. Un disco classico che trasuda America e stupisce che sia tutto italiano. Buon viaggio Marco, la strada è dritta, il serbatoio pieno e la musica è quella giusta…cos’altro serve?"

Andrea Chimenti

Italian singer/songwriter, composer.

"There are albums that sound like little classics at first listen. It is not the unfortunately frequent feeling of "already heard", rather the perception of solidity and authoritativeness that elevates the music above the average, the fashion, the background noise. And that's what happens with the recent work of Marco Schnabl. This [...] album, carries the signs and the maturity of his intense artistic and human story. These aspects give it a particular emotional depth (Marco is singing here for the first time and he does it with a timbre and style that recall Roger Waters) as well as the classic aforementioned distinction: something to do with the strength of the melodies and the simplicity of the arrangements, bearing echoes of at least three generations of the best Anglo-Saxon music.. This is a singer/songwriter's album in the best sense of the term, that is, not one that emphasizes the "message" at compositional complexity and musicianship  detriment, but rather one in which each aspect is meticulously taken care of to be part of a well-defined set. What stands out is not the portrait of a guitarist who sings, not even that of an all-round musician, but rather the one of a man who has learned to deal with all the technical and manufacturing aspects of music as well as the artistic ones. The one of somebody who, paying the price of time and effort, has managed to make a record without compromises, which resembles him in avery aspect.

Giuliano Pavone, journalist and writer for "Il Quotidiano di Puglia" newspaper

"Marco Schnabl's music is beautiful, a love at first listen. His songs possess an extraordinary evocative power - which is the most important factor in choosing music for a cinema director as I am -, yet at the same time they have the entrancing force of U2 as well as the musical and poetic research of Ry Cooder. Finally they have the rare quality of being sophisticated and popular at the same time, I'd say almost generous in their ability of transmitting emotions. That's it, Schnabl is a wonderful artist and I'm looking forward to his next album".

 

"La musica di Marco Schnabl è bellissima, è amore al primo ascolto. I pezzi del suo album hanno una potenza evocativa straordinaria - e per me, che faccio cinema, è la cosa più importante nella scelta della musica -, ma allo stesso tempo possiedono la forza avvolgente dei brani degli U2 e la ricerca poetico-musicale di un Ry Cooder. Infine hanno la rara qualità di essere insieme sofisticati e popolari, direi quasi generosi nella densità di emozioni che riescono a trasmettere. Basta, Schnabl è bravissimo e non vedo l'ora che esca un'altro suo disco."

Edoardo Winspeare

Fantastic 3d sounds...a wonderful soundscape for your autobiographic tales and your visceral screams which have long been wanting to come out. Your lyrics are stories of someone who lives a life of introspecion, giving nothing ever for granted. A cure for our times.

Proud of you and our friendship."

"Suoni fantastici, tridimensionali ..un' ottima cornice ai tuoi racconti autobiografici, alle tue ‘urla viscerali' che da tempo volevano uscire. I tuoi testi, storie di chi la vita la vive con intensità', introspezione e non da' mai niente per scontato. Una medicina per i nostro tempo.

Orgoglioso di te e della nostra amicizia."

Antonio Forcione, multi award winning guitarist and composer, London, UK.
