The Music: An award winning and prolific singer-songwriter, Coppola crafts musical gems that transcend the generation gap. With a style that incorporates intelligent pop, melodic rock, and heartwarming ballads, Coppola showcases his remarkable voice and superb musicianship on his latest album, Moving In. Staying true to his roots, Moving In is a testament to Coppola's stylistic influences while offering a fresh definitive musical statement all his own. "I think people relate to my songwriting style, and even more to my live performances, because I know the power that song and verse carry," asserts Coppola. "It is the immediate connection people feel to me that brings me closer to them. It is very much a symbiotic relationship." A multi-talented artist and gifted performer, Coppola sings in English, Italian, Spanish and French, and has created the platform from which to capture the attention of audiences around the world.
Major influences: The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Guess Who, Bryan Adams, Lenny Kravitz, Seal, Lucio Battisti, Claudio Baglioni
