Bio
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.

I enjoyed this! It was well shot for this kind of video and well performed. I can't say I have any real notes, though I am also not positive that this really stands out quite enough to grab someone's attention. It's a very pleasant track, but is there a way you can imagine for it to really bang? This may require a different producer or other creative talents...or maybe your other songs do exactly that? Anyway, good job on this tune!

I was wondering why no one had covered this song recently. It was a massive hit back in the 80s and enough time has passed for it to be worthy of resurrection. 

Excellent performance, production, and video. I can see why the CBC is interested.

The promotional challenge is the language barrier, of course. Once you've established the single in Quebec and French-speaking pockets of Canada, it's time to focus on France and other francophone territories. I'm assuming you have a radio plugger who is helping you already.

One thing you might do is post a 30-second clip on TikTok. The platform has a massive international user base and someone might pick it up for one of their videos.

Let me circulate this on my professional and social networks. Fingers crossed!

I like the layered vocals and the beautiful imagery in the video. It is a refreshing track in these dark days. Solid vocals and a interesting pop vibe. Nice work.

Nice stuff for anxious times. This is a good candidate for radio airplay on AC radio. The CBC and some community radio might be interested as well.

In addition to radio tracking, it would be good to have a plugger who can get this to music directors across the country. You need someone to help you rise above the noise. Having Pierre on board should be helpful, too.

I'll share this on my social networks. That'll be good for about 100,000 people.
