Acoustic Blues - My main influences reside in the classic Blues Tradition, and in detail I'm taking inspiration from the grat Robert Johnson and the Blues Women of the 30's. My show is based solely on the interaction of Vocals and Guitar, putting the emphasis on the emotional side of Music.

Biography

I'm an italian Blues Singer/Guitarist. Grown up in sothern Italy, I started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 15, inspired by the Blues of the Roots. I studied acting and classical dance, wich gich gave me the opportunity to work in Theatre and TV shows with very well known Directors and Actors such as G. Patroni Griffi, G. Proietti, E. Montesano, P. Baudo.
Music slowly became my main activity, so I landed to a BMG contract in 1995 during wich period I realised three Singles, 'Dammi una Mano', 'Fuori Concorso', and 'Mille Rumori di Fondo'. A Music Video accompanied 'Fuori Concorso'. My musical collaboration as Side(wo)man include: Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, Hinnoson, Harold Bradley, Raf among others.

Lyrics

Ali (wings)

Written By: Stefania Calandra

Wings
Wings
Not to fall down
Wings
To go above
And to leave far far away
Where there is no sky nowhere anymore

Wings
To go wherever you (may go)
Wings
To disappear beyond the blue
And go swimming up there
Where there is no sky nowhere anymore

Yes,this time I will try
Yes,this time I will know
Yes,this time I will do
This time I’m sure that I
Will fly over you

Wings
Wings
Wings
How I wanna have two wings
For me
Two wings

solo a lei (only for her)

Written By: Stefania Calandra

Solo a lei – Only for her

Smoky night club and your eyes are only for her
I am here at your side and now you look at me
Look at me

Tired, drunken glances. You’re soul is only for her
And I am here at your side drinking Gin
You now look at me

You touch her hand and look at me
You kiss her lips and look at me
I come across and then
When I get close to you
You turn and look at her

I wish you’d give me all you give her, only her
I wish you’d do that only with me, only me
I wish you’d give me all you give her, only her
I wish you’d do that only with me, only me

pazza di te (crazy for you)

Written By: Stefania Calandra

Pazza di te - Crazy for you

I like it when you touch me

Every time you say I’m yours

When you say

I’m the only one for you

I get mad when you say

That there’s no one

In the world as me

I love no one other than you

I need a doctor for my poor heart

Cause it beats too hard and for too long

Did you realize that

I am crazy for you I am crazy for you
I am crazy for you I am crazy for you
I’m mad for love I’m mad for love
I am crazy, crazy Crazy, crazy for you

It’s here that I feel it thumping

It’s always here that it grows from inside

It’s the first time that

I want no one but you

Love or sex, it doesn’t matter

Cause with you, I do everything with you

I am crazy for you I am crazy for you

I am crazy for you I am crazy for you

I’m mad for love I’m mad for love

I am crazy, crazy Crazy, crazy for you

I’m mad for love I’m mad for love

I am crazy, crazy

Crazy, crazy for you

You, You, You, You, You……You

stop violence

Written By: Stefania Calandra

……brother..sister

somebody keeps your soul
somebody kills your mind
somebody leaves you alone
somebody loves you as you are

brother …sister (hear me)

somebody tries to take a piece of your life
somebody shines like the sun
somebody wants to know everything
somebody plays with our life

now try to stop the violence
please stop the violence

brother… sister(hear me)
