Biography

For frustrated music fans who have grown tired of negative lyrics, lip-syncing artists, and superficial imagery, we have found the answer for you. Often described as a cross between John Mayer and Jason Mraz, pop-folk singer/songwriter/musician, Tiamo De Vettori, was recently named L.A. Music Award’s "Male Singer/Songwriter of the Year" & San Diego Music Award's "Best Songwriter". With a powerful voice, captivating stage presence, compelling lyrics, and melodies impossible not to sing along to, Southern California fans have gravitated to Tiamo’s positive vibe and love for life.

Tiamo has grown accustomed to performing for audiences of up to 5,000 people since he was seven years old. During his childhood, he had the extremely rare opportunity to perform and tour the world with his father, Franco De Vettori, an international opera singer.

Despite growing up on stage, Tiamo’s career as a singer/songwriter didn’t quite formalize until he intuitively hopped on a Greyhound bus headed for Virginia—just a few days after graduating from the University of Arizona. Soon after, a close friend who had read Tiamo’s poetry and heard him sing insisted that he explore the combination of songwriting and performing. Needing a friendly push, Tiamo had a hard time turning down his friend’s eventual offer to pay for half the cost of a guitar as long as he kept one promise—get the guitar, let it sit in your living room, and as Tiamo’s friend put it, “the songs will just flow out of you”. Surely enough, Tiamo looked at his new guitar one rainy night, picked it up, and without any previous guitar experience, "accidentally" wrote his first song.

Currently, Tiamo has climbed to #4 and #18 on the Australian radio charts and is receiving radio play in 10 countries including the U.S. Now touting a publishing catalog of over 75 songs, Tiamo has taken his passion for performing to several of the most popular hot spots in San Diego such as opening for Jewel at San Diego’s highly celebrated Humphrey’s Concerts by the Bay, large college campuses including University of California San Diego and San Diego State University, and other highly regarded venues such as the House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, and the Belly Up. He has also performed live on TV stations such as San Diego’s most watched morning news show, KFMB News Channel 8, and has been featured on radio stations such as KPRI 102.1 FM.

With the release of his new CD entitled “Back to Love”, a vision of creating positive change in the music industry, and a gravitating persona, you can’t help but cheer on this modest, rising star. For more information about Tiamo, booking, or interviews, contact:

Lyrics

Let's Get Naked

Written By: Tiamo De Vettori

Let’s Get Naked (2:22)

I’m BBQ’n with my baby
On a summer’s day afternoon, yeah yeah
We’re soaking wet from our sweat
And our clothes are in the way too
Would it be obscene
If we ditched our clothes
Or our friends did the skinny
To get comfortable
But who cares
If we’re bare
Underwear
Is just another billion-dollar making industry

Chorus:
It just seems to me
That I’d rather be
The way God intended
To make me
Let’s all beat the heat
And go naturally
And agree
To be free
So let’s all get naked

Post Chorus:
’Cause everybody’s so paranoid
Show yourselves, don’t be annoyed like that
It don’t matter what’s your color or size
Because skin is just skin
Covering what’s inside
Oh yeah

Let’s get naked
Let’s all get naked

I’m sick and tired
Of my life being governed
By dressing codes, yeah yeah
Forgot my blinds weren’t closed
Now the neighborhood knows
How white my butt is
And my uptight neighbors
Got offended
Next thing you know
I’m being arrested
In my home
With no freedom to roam
In the suit that I was born in

Chorus

Post Chorus

Let’s get naked
Let’s all get naked

So everybody be free
You don’t have to be
Like the supermodel shown in the magazine

Everybody be free
And let your personality
Get undressed for the rest of humanity

Everybody be free
You don’t have to be
Like the supermodel shown in the magazine

Everybody be free
Wouldn’t you agree
It’s time to N.A.K.E.D. with me

Let’s get naked
Let’s all get naked

Get N.A.K.E.D with me
Get N.A.K.E.D with me

When You Walked By

Written By: Tiamo De Vettori

When You Walked By (3:59)

Sometimes we win
Sometimes we lose
But when we learn from losses
Then there is no losing
Like poetry
Before my eyes
I read your book cover
But I never went inside

Chorus:
When you walked by
I had just a second
When you walked by
I’ll never forget it
When you walked by
I got misdirected
When you walked by
Now I always regretted that time

Post Chorus:
I played freeze tag with myself
That time
I played freeze tag with myself

Some moments cross
Like life lines
A second is a minute in the space of time
When those moments come
Don’t hide away
’Cause tomorrow’s gonna be another day too late

Chorus

Post Chorus

I had my shot
That I didn’t take
But I reloaded my gun
For another day
And the next time
An angel walked by
I remembered what happens
When you watch from sidelines

Chorus:
When you walked by
I took just a second
When you walked by
I’ll always remember
When you walked by
I was cool, calm, and collected
When you walked by
Now I never regretted that time

Post Chorus

Into the Rain

Written By: Tiamo De Vettori

Into the Rain (4:17)

My emotional forecast used to read cloudy skies
Until I found that I control the weather in my life
’Cause our thoughts create our surrounding realities
And now I know behind the clouds the sun’s always shining

Pre Chorus:
I’m not afraid anymore
Of a little downpour
I’m not afraid of change
So I’ll go head first
Into the rain

Chorus:
I’m running through the rain
I’m running through the rain
Won’t you run with me
And we’ll start re-connecting to the love
I’m running through the rain
I’m running through the rain
Won’t you run with me
And get soaked in humanity right now

Right here
Right now
Let’s run through the rain

Problems aren’t problems if they’re opportunities
To take challenges that bring out the best in me
Once I learned to laugh about all those times that I tripped
I realized that my life is such a wonderful gift

Pre Chorus

Chorus

I’m running through the rain (repeat 5 times)

The rain
The rain

Let’s run through the rain (repeat 5 times)
