PATRIZIA
CBC Radio 3 calls PATRIZIA "Canada' s next SENSATION"! With a powerful 4-OCTAVE voice , PATRIZIA fuses opera/classical to rock creating a stunning new genre in the music world!

Joe Chisolm (IndieCan Radio) describes Patrizia as a “female version of FREDDIE MERCURY”

"Holy **** can you believe what we have just saw and heard?" Joe Chisolm (IndieCan Radio)

" The audience was fascinated and riveted.."
(CHART Attack)

" Perhaps the most unique performer I have ever heard in my life..Freddy Mercury would have been blown away and completely dazzled by Patrizia"-Linear Reflections

Currently #1 top rated artist on The Edge 102.1 - Indie Online

Patrizia’s unique style of fusing opera with rock has garnered the praises from critics and fellow musicians across the country. Her first video “Rage” was featured at the 2001 ITALIAN FILM FESTIVAL as well as charting on BRAVO! Television and her second video “Temptation” reached to #1 in early 2004. Her latest video “Desperation” charted at #2 and was featured on BravoFact presents the "Best Canadian Female Vocalists". Patrizia received a SOCAN award for her #1 song on BRAVO!

Patrizia’s recent collaboration with thrice Grammy award winning producer STEVE THOMPSON(Madonna, Metallica, Guns n’ Roses etc) has resulted in her current release “My Beloved” now on rotation/charting in 30 college stations across Canada.

Born in Abruzzo, Italy, raised in Thunder Bay and now residing in Toronto, Patrizia grew up loving rock music before seeking the bright lights of Toronto to pursue her rock n’ roll dream. While writing and performing with local rock bands the unthinkable happened – she heard a recording of the legendary soprano Maria Callas and her life took a turn. Driven by this newfound passion Patrizia studied and trained under some of the best in the business, Stephanie Bogle, John Hess, Stuart Hamilton, Alisa Palmer, Tom Diamond, Paula Suozzi to name a few, performing as lead in many operatic productions. Although drawing praises for her unique voice and stage presence Patrizia could not let go of her first love – rock music. Hence Patrizia conceptualized the marriage of her two greatest musical lovers to create her trademark style.

Lyrics

FURY

Written By: Mozart/Patrizia/Milner

Italian Translation English Translation

Angui di fuoco sento nel mio petto, Serpentine fires I feel in my breast
Morte e vendetta, Death and vengeance
Morte e vendetta brucian nel mio cor, Death and vengeance burn in my heart
Se tu non vuoi la furia mia svelarlo If you don't want my rage to be revealed
allor l'amore mio finira then my love will end
Ah!

Ti lascio, t'abbandono, I will leave you, I will abandon you
Per sempre sarai solo Alone you will always be
Paventa il mio furore, Fear my fury
se tu osi esser crudel if you dare to be cruel
Ti lascio! T'abbandono e ti distruggo! I will leave you! I will abandon you and I will destroy you!
Se tu osi esser crudel If you dare to be cruel
Se tu non vuoi la furia mia svelarlo If you don't want my rage to be revealed
Ciel! Ciel! Ciel! Heaven! Heaven! Heaven!
Il mio voto ascolta oh ciel! Oh heaven hear my vow!


ON THE BRINK

Written By: Patrizia/J.Vancena/S.Thompson/A.Kronis

I'm on the edge
I feel the grip
my pulse begins to run cold
I'm on the brink
I'm melting down
I hear the sirens going off

I want to run
I have no choice
Forced to look
as it comes down

I'm on the edge
I'm looking down
I see the end at my door
I'm on the brink
I'm melting down
I see the blade drawing near

I want to run
I have no choice
Forced to look
as it comes down

Repeat

MY BELOVED

Written By: Beethoven/Patrizia/Steve Thompson

MY BELOVED

(Lyrics by Patrizia)

"I am here,

do not weep,

the night has come to take you home.

Rest your head in my arms,

I have drank all your tears

to quench your pain

My beloved

how long

must I roam here

when you're gone?

I'll count the days until we meet again

Oooh!

I am here,

do not fear

the night has come to take you home

Lay your head upon my heart

can you feel all my love for you?

My beloved

how long

must I roam here

when you're gone?

I'll count the days until we meet again

TEMPTATION

Written By: BIZET

TEMPTATION
(Bizet)

L'Amour est un oiseau rebelle
Que nul ne peut apprivoiser
Et c'est bien en vain qu'on l'appelle,
S'il lui convient de refuser.

Rien n'y fait, menace ou prière,
L'un parle bien, l'autre se tait;
Et c'est l'autre que je préfère
Il n'a rien dit; mais il me tient.

L'Amour est un oiseau rebelle
L'Amour
Que nul ne peut apprivoiser
L'Amour
Et c'est bien en vain qu'on l'appelle
L'Amour
S'il lui convient de refuser
L'Amour

L'Amour est enfant de Bohême,
Il n'a jamais, jamais connu de loi,
Si tu ne m'aime pas, je t'aime,
Si je t'aime, prend garde à toi!

(Prends garde à toi)
Si tu ne m'aime pas si tu ne m'aimes pas je t'aime
(Prends garde à toi)
Mais si je t'aime si je t'aime prends garde à toi!

English Translation

Love is a rebellious bird
That nothing can tame
And it is simply in vain to call it
If it is convenient for it to refuse.

Nothing will work, threat or pleading,
One speaks, the other stays quiet;
And it's the other that I prefer
He said nothing; but he pleases me.

Love
Love is a rebellious bird
Love
That nothing can tame
Love
And it is simply in vain to call it
Love
If it is convenient for it to refuse.

Love is the child of the Bohemian,
It has never, never known any law,
If you don't love me, I love you,
If I love you, you better watch out!

(Keep guard of yourself)
If you don't love me, If you don't love me I love you!
(Keep guard of yourself)
But, if I love you, you better watch out

AVE MARIA

Written By: Patrizia

AVE

I stumbled and I have fallen
too long in the shadows of life,
searching for your face
I'll always look for you!

Chorus
Ave Maria
you're the one I long for
I brought you my heart broken
all my open wounds!

In darkness I weep at your feet
my heart cries out for you,
hold me in your care
you're always by my side!

Chorus
Ave Maria
you're the one I long for
I brought you my heart broken
all my open wounds!

Chorus
Ave Maria
you're the one I long for
I brought you my heart broken
all my open wounds!

Repeat

ASHES & DUST

Written By: Patrizia

Ashes & Dust

You want to live
on top of your grave
I wish the earth would swallow me whole

Chorus
I've had enough of ashes and dust
I've had enough from you!

I've offered my soul
you filled it with stones
I wish the ground would swallow me whole
I want to live to feast on top of my grave
I don't know which way my heart will go!

Chorus
I've had enough of ashes and dust
you're breaking my back
I've had enough from you

Oh! I am torn!

Ashes and dust
I've had enough Ah!!!

DESPERATION

Written By: Puccini

DESPERATION

Vissi d'arte, vissi d'amore ( I lived for art, I lived for love)
Sempre con fe` sincera la mia preghiera (always with sincere faith were my prayers to you)
ai santi tabernacoli sali` ( offered to the holy shrines)
Sempre con fe` sincera diedi fiori agl' altar (Always with sincere faith I brought flowers to the altar)
Nell'ora del dolor perche` (Why in this hour of suffering)
Perche` Signore, perche` me ne rimuneri cosi`? ( why Lord, why do you reward me like this)?
Diedi gioielli alla Madonna al manto ( I have given the jewels for our Lady's mantle)
E diedi il canto agli astri, ai ciel ( and I sang for the stars, for the heavens above)
che ne ridean piu` belli ( that they may smile more kindly upon me)
Nell'ora del dolor perche` ( in this hour of suffering why)
Perche` Signore, perche` me ne rimuneri cosi? ( Why Lord do you reward me like this)?
