Biography

Proto is my Mother's Surname. It's greek and it means "first": I found it interesting to connect it to my music, electronica.
I'm italian, and I write english lyrics.

I've always been a huge fan of funk, rock and pop music: Prince is one of my biggest idols ever.
I love been tickled by the sound of a synthesizer, but even touched by a mellow note.
My music shows all this...and of course between the lines you can find my background too;

I'm a musical performer (I was in the original italian cast of "Rent" directed by Michael Grief and produced by Nicoletta Mantovani and Maestro Pavarotti), that's why the visual aspect of our shows is also important

I worked with dj Benny Benassi: I recorded, wrote songs, I performed and coreographed his live show (performances include "Top of the Pops" UK, KTU radio dance festival in NY, Energy Radio Festival in Moscow Russia).

In my band Stefano Marconi plays guitar and bass guitar, and Eros Loli plays drums.

Lyrics

Millionaire

Written By: Paolo Proto

Mama need your advice, Papa please don't think twice
It's so sad I've been bad slacking around
Shoot me up, tear me down, spin me around

'Cause I will never be a millionaire
You know that wouldn't be that bad affair
If only people didn't give a damn
But I will never be a millionaire, all right

Baby you could pretend, but honey this is not fair
So what's your choice, realize you have a price
They'll shoot you up, tear you down, spin you around

If you will never be a millionare
You know that wouldn't be that bad affair
If only people didn't give a damn
But you will never be a millionaire, all right

I just wish you could see what's there behind, inside
'Cause I don't need no credit cards around tonight
I just wish you could see what's there behind, inside
'Cause I don't need no credit cards around

'Cause I will never be a millionaire
You know that wouldn't be that bad affair
If only people didn't give a damn
But I will never be a millionaire

'Cause you will never be a millionaire
You know that wouldn't be that bad affair
If only people didn't give a damn
But you will never be a millionaire,
All right

Shoot me up and tear me down,
Shoot me up and tear me down,
Shoot me up and tear me down,
Shoot me up and tear me.

Alarm

Written By: Paolo Proto

Sometimes I have the feeling something's wrong
Then all my troubles I forget
Emergency will ever come along?
That's an instance I reject
The ship is sinking and burning but outside sunny weather: nothing to worry about
So I will stay here forever waiting for something better
Doing everything, nothing's wrong

I can scream satisfied
I can jump or I can dive
I can sleep comatose
Call it freedom overdose

Whatever will be will be
The future will see, but please set me free
Don't bug me with your questions: I don't know
But don't leave me alone
Just trust my word: it's not the end of the world

It might be changing, trasforming and always revolving
Nothing to worry about
So we could stay here forever waiting for something better
Doing everything, nothing's wrong

We can scream satisfied
We can jump or we can dive
We can sleep comatose
Call it freedom overdose

Nothing's still, nothing's sure
What will come one day will go
Nothing's still, nothing's sure
What will come one day will go

Jump in the blue

Written By: Paolo Proto

You realize one thing's important
Exactly the day it fades away
I had your love but now it's over
Still can't believe, just yesterday
Runnin' around and thinking over
Thinkin' about all our mistakes
The fact remains I'm all alone now
And I'm so cold nowhere to hide tonight

Winter is over but no, not for me
Flowers in blossom, not even in my fantasy
My eyes on the crowd look for someone like you
Here's my last goodbye before I jump in the blue, before I jump in the blue

Runnin' around from bar to bar
The picture of you is never quite far
I'll get one more coffee and...water please... mmm like that
And everything remains the same
Nothing's gonna change, that's what you say

If every pain makes you stronger
Tomorrow I'll be Superman
But if this thing lasts any longer
I'm pretty sure 'twill drive me mad
The fact remains I'm still alone now
And I'm so cold, nowhere to hide tonight

Winter is over but no, not for me
Flowers in blossom, not even in my fantasy
My eyes on the crowd look for someone like you
Here's my last goodbye before I jump in the blue, before I jump in the blue
