CARVELLI: The Music: With this superb new self-titled mini-album, Italian-Canadian MC and producer Carvelli confirms that he is an artist with a truly original sound and vision. The five tracks here seamlessly fuse hiphop, Euro-flavored dance, r 'n b and rock elements into an irresistible package. "I just go where I want. I want every track to have its own feel, but all with positivity," explains Carvelli. He certainly completes that mission here.
Now making waves as a single, "Down" sounds like the soundtrack to the best night you've ever had in a nightclub. "Let's burn up the scene, tonight we'll tear up the town," threatens Carvelli, and he delivers on the promise big time. "We ain't ever comin' down," the song declares, and you won't, just as long as you keep spinning the infectiously rhythmic cut.
Three other tracks on the EP, "Whoa," "All We Really Want Is," "The Movement," have already been scoring airplay and eyeballs, thanks to eye-catching videos that have accompanied them. Whoa" features guest turns from two American stars, TQ and crunk queen Rasheeda, and Carvelli describes its recording as "tons of fun." On "All We Really Want Is," Carvelli delivers a hip-hop meets dance music track that's heavily rhythmic, witty and sexy, while on "CEO" and "The Movement" he pays homage to his Italian roots on two unforgettably anthemic cuts. "CEO" will soon be both the title song and theme of a new reality show, to be based on the fascinating life of Carvelli.

CARVELLI: The Man: Over the course of a musical career spanning over a decade, Carvelli has earned rave reviews, peer respect and a growing international fan base for his work. Noted trade publication Cashbox gave his 2008 EP The Italian Movement a Five-Star review, calling it "a well-produced CD sure to garner a lot of sales and airplay." Carvelli has released a series of singles that have charted widely and helped him score serious exposure on MTV and MuchMusic. His tracks have received No. 1, Top 10 and Top 40 awards from IAIRA (The International Association of Independent Recording Artists), and placed in the Top 10 and 40 of such charts as DJ Times, Mass Pool, Zip DJ, and Galaxy.
Carvelli has long had a successful business career as an entrepreneur, running parallel to his musical life. A larger than life character, his life story is a fascinating one, as his new TV reality show will showcase. One of his idols, Frank Sinatra was known as The Chairman of the Board. Carvelli will soon be known as the CEO.
Carvelli is deeply committed to supporting charities helping those less fortunate. Those assisting young children and animals are especially close to his heart, as shown by his rescue of three Italian greyhounds that are now his much-loved companions. "I'm not using charity as a tactic. It's just who I am for real," he insists.
That same sense of honesty runs through his music making. "I write the tracks from my soul," he explains. His creative sweat at The Shop in Little Italy pays off in the form of well-produced tracks that are then mixed and mastered by his skilled studio comrades in Los Angeles.
Carvelli's Italian roots run deep, and he is committed to celebrating his heritage in his music. “Italians are famous for having the best fashion, the best exotic cars, great films, not to mention the wine,” he declares. “For Italian hiphop, rap or pop to make it into the mainstream, it has to be classy too. I’m promoting my Italian heritage. That’s my culture." "The Movement," has done just that, serving as an eloquent anthem for the promotion of Italian-accented music.
So here's Carvelli. A man and a new record to be reckoned with.
