"Your Album!" - Despite the success of his recent top 4 hit ÂE Cosi Com'EÂ (Captiol/EMI) the "Swiss Prince" or Signorino TJ as he is affectionately known in his chocolate loving homeland, is not content to rest on his creative laurels - fuelled by encouragement from an ever growing army of listeners, he is constantly exploring new and independent ways to market his music - with the "Your Album" concept music lovers can create a personalized CD from a selection of over 40 songs taken from the catalogue of this fresh and dynamic young artist.
In the history of music the mainstream and the underground have always taken turns to dominate centre stage. Now however, it's the turn of the cheeky little independent artist to gatecrash proceedings by turning the music buyers attention away from the musical Godzillas, and basking in the warmth of the spotlight for a scene or three.
The song buying public can now take the idea of online music stores like Rhapsody, Emusic and Apple iTunes to another level by visiting http://www.SignorinoTJ.com and pre-listening to a wide range of his songs. After selecting the tunes THEY want included on the CD, THEIR unique and personalized album will be shipped directly to any address on planet earth (Intergalactic shipments are not available at this time.) The service has been rigorously tested in Switzerland for over 6 months now, and the idea has received generous praise from representatives of the press and public on both sides of the atlantic.
TJ says, "I've had so much bad luck in my career that by early 2003 I found myself with lots of great but unreleased recordings. I have always tried to find my own ways of surviving in this cut throat business, and since I was lucky enough to control all the publishing and copyrights of these recordings, I could legally do something like "your album!". most other artists couldnÂt do it in the first place even if they wanted to because they've already signed their soul to the devil somewhere along the line.Â
As yet none of TJÂs past albums have been released internationally (only two singles on EMI and one on BMG) however Signorino TJ has not been lazy at all. He has performed in a variety of venues around the globe (including Montreux Jazz Festival or the Paris club scene) and his publishing company Royal Pop Publishing has a catalogue of hundreds of original songs, testimony to the creativity of this prolific artist. ÂI just let this massive musical output of mine flood the place until thereÂs no way it can be overseen.Â
After the release of his first Japanese album "SuperSimpleSexySomethingÂ and the guerilla-pop project "OneManBoyBandÂ (BMG) earlier this year, Signorino TJ has also had songs in the finals of the International Songwriting Competition, the USA Songwriting Competition and Eurovision Song Contest. At the present moment he is back in the studio recording a new latin-flavoured single due out in April on his own label. Besides writing material for different major and independent artists he is also working on his much anticipated first solo album in three years.
