Montreal born singer-songwriter Gianni Bodo has been writing, recording and performing music for over 2 decades. Master of his sound (a crossbreed of rock, pop and indie), Gianni delivers, in music and lyrics, heightened atmospheres and heartfelt descriptions of inner and outer worlds.
His critically acclaimed debut solo album, Fade to Rose, features high profile collaborations with, among others, Juno award winning producer and songwriter Pierre Marchand (Sarah McLachlan, Rufus Wainwright), Juno award winning saxophone virtuoso François Carrier and Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Colin Devlin.
In 2014, Quebec Spot Media touted Gianni as one of the year’s biggest music revelations and his album, Fade to Rose, was featured on Musique Plus by Quebec’s most esteemed music critic, Claude Rajotte. Gianni has since been featured internationally in multiple radio and television broadcasts, newspapers, blogs, webzines and magazines.
Hurricanes and Butterflies, the artist’s last commercial single, entirely written and recorded in confinement as the global health crises heated up, piled up rave reviews and radio play around the world in the spring of 2020. In February 2021, Gianni releases Si Je Pars, his first commercial French language single sharing writing credit with Nicholas Eede of British band Cutting Crew. An original composition, charged with electricity and excitement, reminiscent of 80s mega hit, (I Just) Died in Your Arms.
