I love to remix and perform songs that I think will make people smile, dance and have fun singing along.

Starlite Productions is proud to release the debut album from Biagio titled “The Italian Touch.” Produced by Giuseppe D., the recording will be released everywhere digitally on January 26, 2018.

“The Italian Touch” is considered to be the ultimate Italian/American dance party album featuring well-known songs chosen to appeal to young and old alike, and created by combining styles made famous by artists ranging from Joe Dolce and Angelo Venuto to many of the EDM artists heard today.

Growing up in a traditional Italian household, the love of family, food and music was instilled in Blaise “Biagio” Benevenga at an early age. He began to take piano lessons and started performing at many family functions. Music became a big part of his life, and eventually he started an Italian/American band called The Vibrations where they performed weddings and dinner dances all over the Tri-State Area. “We also had an opportunity to tour and perform concerts in many of the beautiful regions of Italy opening up for many top artists,” said Biagio.

Having released a successful CD previously with his band titled “Viva Italiano” (now available as “Festival Italiano”), they redid many classic Italian songs with a modern sound which can still be heard today at many Italian festivals such as the world-famous Feast Of San Gennaro in New York City. So in making this solo album, “I love to remix and perform songs that I think will make people smile, dance and have fun singing along,” said Biagio. “This is how I came about redoing these beloved songs for my album while adding a few different elements to give it more energy, but yet keeping some of the original feel of the song that made them what they are.”

Biagio has released singles and music videos for “Shaddap You Face”, “Eh, Cumpari! (Italiani Remix)” and “Dominick The Donkey” prior to this album’s release, and is now getting ready to tour across the country to promote this album for 2018.
