Feeling a bit camera shy


Up-and-coming singer-songwriter and producer Luigino D’Andrea, known by his stage name Afraid of Fear, may be all of 20 but his music tells a different story. Afraid Of Fear is a project born from the love of Italian Dance, English Pop and the unheard cutting edge music of the underground scene, merged together to form a perfectly blended, unique sound hot off the press.
Luigino first got his taste for music at a young age when he saw a band perform at a wedding he attended and became fascinated by the guitar player. “So I went home and urged my dad to get this old guitar down from the loft, then locked myself in my room and taught myself by ear to play theme tunes, and other popular riffs. I got my first electric guitar and amp for Christmas when I was around 11 years old and just kept learning by ear and started writing my own music.”

Going the self taught root has meant that Luigino has taught himself to play many instruments including the drums, the bass guitar, the synthesiser and the Ukulele. This led Luigino to study Music Technology for a better understanding of sound and to give himself an experimental edge to draw from within his wide ranging musical influences, The result being a unique mix of ambient music with an electro pop refreshing format.

Luigino is not afraid to acknowledge that every single one of his songs are recorded and written in his bedroom. “Some days I wake up with an idea or some lyrics in my head and I write the song as I’m recording. I finish every song in less than a day, I wrote and recorded my first album in less than a month… It started life as a 2 track single…then turned into a 5 track ep and soon enough ended up as an 8 track mini album, which I put on iTunes.”

Luigino chalks up his fanbase through a word-of-mouth that began with his friend network on MySpace. This then led to bombardment of messages from fans across the world including Australia, Finland, Russia, Spain and China to name a few. ” They kept asking me how they could get my songs on their iPod’s; I searched the internet and found a way of getting my debut mini album on to iTunes myself.”

Luigino is now gearing up for the release of his debut single 'The Cut Down', which is released digitally through iTunes in May. 'The Cut Down' is an Ibiza infused track, full of pounding drum beats and vibing synthetics which is easily a recipie for dance club success. With it's beggining draggin it's listeners into a welcoming dance opportunity, Luigino's innocent vocals adds to this already epic dance track by providing such addictive verses such as 'You send all your texts with a kiss, with a kiss.You know the right words to make drama out of this'. Which makes this track an excellent dance track to sing along to. This Basshunter meets Little Boots track is flawless inviting even the shyest of people onto the dance floor.

With the single release in May and the album released later this year (more info on the album TBA), it looks set to be a busy year for Afraid of Fear, but he's ready to take over 2010 and would like YOU to be involved...
