Who I Am

YOVANNI BIO

The phrase that would sum up YOVANNI’s musical journey would be the one he used during his Qool Music Awards acceptance speech when winning in the Best R&B Dance Artist nomination – “Never ever ever give up on your vision”. YOVANNI’s music has charted on several DJ music and dance music charts (“Hello”, “I Want You, Breathe”) and his current new single “Funktronika” which takes you on a time warp of classic 70’s groove with a stylish electronica vibe.
At 6 years old, YOVANNI moved to the sunny Florida from Cuba and began his path as a young musician when a teacher at the prestigious New World School of the Arts, overheard him singing and agreed to give free singing lessons during his lunch breaks and eventually YOVANNI developed his voice and also writing his own songs with local musicians in his neighborhood.

During the hot Summer of 1987, YOVANNI moved to New York and worked in various restaurants to make ends meet.  Even after the singer was on the verge of being homeless, he didn’t turn away from his dream and started performing covers and his original songs in the NY subway.  “Lean on me” by Bill Withers was one of the songs he sang in the tunnels of NY. A few weeks later, that same song won him a spot at the Showtime at the Apollo – one of the toughest singing competition in Harlem. 

YOVANNI’s genre of music is defined as mix R&B and Funk with elements of electronica with a flair of Meatloaf meets Freddy Mercury.
