Milan-based singer-songwriter and producer Alessia Labate was born to a musician father and dancer mother.

 

She worked her way into music at 12 as a contestant on Io canto and Io canto 3 (Italian TV shows). A decade later – after ‘The Voice of Italy’ and C.E.T. (prestigious Italian songwriting school) – at just 22 Alessia is now a professional vocalist and songwriter.

 

She has been up to a lot of stuff in the past year: releasing and writing a lot of new music that easily found its way to Nicky Romero’s Music from Protocol Radio, multiple New Music Fridays and Friday Cratediggers, collaborating with artists such as Stef Classens (Runner-up in The Voice Of Holland), Gabriele Esposito (XfactorIT) and Chiara Grispo (XfactorIT -Amici), and working on her artist project.

 

After the unexpected success of “Just Love”, she recently released “OMG” with Spinnup + a cool homemade music video.

Discuss your recording experience with your producer. 

OMG was written with Iova and Vladimir Chopsticks (who produced it as well) in Bucharest at HaHaHa productions studios.

 

It was my first ever session with the guys, Vladimir broke the ice recording the sassy bass line of OMG, and after that, it all came out pretty naturally.

Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song. 

It depends on the situation, I usually come with melodies first, but something I come up with hooks or concepts first.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist. 

Work your ass off. No shortcuts. Be humble and never feel you have learned it all.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your worse experience in the music business. 

So far I’ve been really lucky, all the people I have worked with are super-talented and professional. As a vocalist, I have worked with a few asshole producers, but nothing too serious. Everything can be worked out with a good management.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection. 

I learned to appreciate it when coming from people that are at a higher level than me or that I trust. I used to get upset, it’s okay.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to impact the people around you.

I support them as much as possible

 

.

.

.

 

Tell us what makes you happy.

Food, writing music, pets, reading…

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song. 

I either make them myself or work with a producer I really trust.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song. 

That’s the craziest feeling ever! It’s so dope.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.

Telling a story effectively, whether it’s mine or not. 

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your approach to writing. 

I either start from an instrumental and topline on that or start from scratch and find chords for my song. If I already have a concept, I work around that and perhaps start from the chorus, both lyrics, and melody… If I don’t I just jam melodies and make the best out of my jam.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style. 

Experimenting and spreading your style outside your comfort zone is key.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to record a song. 

The only thing I’m picky about is vocal editing (I do it myself) and the vibe while recording.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone. 

Both.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your experience with fans. 

Fans are so important! They make an artist. I can release songs for the rest of my life but if no one is streaming/buying/supporting my project how can I make a living out of it? 

.

.

.

 

 

Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film. 

Yes, sure!

Elaborate on the song. 

“OMG” is a funny pop song crafted with love and care in Bucharest by Vladimir Chopsticks, Iova, and me. Gritty bass lines and snarky ad-libs will make you dance and laugh; I’m happy I release it while in full Lockdown, people’s reaction has been really positive, they are loving the light-heartedness of the song, as well as Spotify’s editorial team: they added it to last week’s New Music Friday Italy, YUPPY!

 

Making the music video was a super fun hustle and a real team effort: it was shot with an iPhone in my house in Milan by my boyfriend, directed by Walter Coppola (remotely) and me, edited by Megan Stancanelli, made super special by my friends shooting themselves dancing to the song. 

 

 

In the video, I play many characters, and I do really weird shit, like cleaning the toilet in high heels. You should definitely watch it

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album. 

No album in the making, my artist name is just my real name.
