Biography

Of Shadows And Lights was born in 2018 and it's the moniker used by the Italian singer-songwriter/producer Angelo Pitone. He's graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Music with distinction at the UWS. The triplet music-lyrics-photography is the poetry that tells the story of good and evil and of who we are as human beings. "Life is rarely peaches and cream. There's always something that is hidden from your eyes. It influences your decisions, and you can't control it. I think it's the daughter of modern society and the surreal days we're living" says Angelo. "You have to keep fighting head-on, and it doesn't matter if you go down because someday, you'll have something to tell. I like to create something beautiful from the darkness. It's a part of my creative process. Songs are like clay: I can decide how to shape it without never losing control, and 'Almost Prophetic Visions And Thoughts' is no exception". It's a debut album made during surreal times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has utterly upended the most fundamental principle of ordinary living. 'Almost Prophetic Visions And Thoughts' is a musical journey that faces several topics: isolation and depression induced by modern technologies, abandonment, betrayal, lack of empathy, survival in a world adrift, and ambient pollution.

Natalia De Mitri from ROCKNBOLD Magazine wrotes: "[...] the opening track 'Awakening' has the power and the similarities to Muse frontman Matt Bellamy's falsetto [...] The result is an extremely cohesive and intense work that shows all the talent and the versatility of the artist, as well as the new path that new classic rock must follow".
