Al Conti Gains European Distribution With Silenzio Music Ag Following Midem Outreach

The agreement between the New Age artist and the Germany-based distributor will make three of his albums -- Poeta, Scheherezade and the GRAMMY®-nominated Northern Seas – immediately available to retailers and distributors in and around Europe.

Online PR News – 05-April-2012 – New York, NY – GRAMMY-nominee Al Conti announced that he has signed a European distribution deal with Silenzio Music AG for three of his albums under Shadowside Music. The agreement between the New Age artist and the Germany-based distributor will make three of his albums -- Poeta, Scheherezade and the GRAMMY®-nominated Northern Seas – immediately available to retailers and distributors in and around Europe. Conti’s next album, currently in production, is likely to join the other three in the offering by early 2013.

Conti, a composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, noted “I am so glad that my fans in Europe will now be able to more easily access my music, and I appreciate the support that Silenzio gives to New Age music with their holistic approach to the category.”

Utilizing social networking has made it easier than ever for artists to understand their fan base, and it certainly helped Conti realize that a growing number of fans were connecting with him from Europe, South America and the Middle East. Having traveled and lived in South America, Europe and the United States, Conti’s appreciation for exploring various cultures is apparent in his music. Conti released Poeta in 2007, the award-winning Scheherazade in 2008, and Northern Seas in late 2010, albums which are, respectively, inspired by tales of ancient Greece, a legendary Middle Eastern heroine, and Nordic myths of the Viking Age. Internet airplay of Conti’s music on dozens of New Age music radio stations across the globe aided in increasing his international fan base to a degree that made greater worldwide distribution a logical next step.
