Combining European and Canadian culture, guitarist and singer songwriter Italian-Canadian Marco D’Amico has made a name for himself with his passionate music and smooth voice.

Drawing from artists such as Andrea Bocelli and Jesse Cook, D’Amico has intermixed his tremendous tenor range with his incredibly classy guitar playing.

D’Amico has recently finished recording his second full-length album called ‘Meant to Be’ which includes four Italian songs and worked with producer and engineer James Paul to complete the album.

D’Amico grew up in the community of Woodbridge, north of Toronto, Ontario and began his interest in music at an early age.

In 2000, D’Amico began his solo career and his early performances began while he was traveling in Italy.

What followed these performances was a full-fledged career in the music industry.

D’Amico’s debut CD, ‘Something About You’ was released in 2005 and reached number one in Japan and held its position in the top 10 for six weeks. The song appeared on more than a dozen other music charts and the CD was sold in Canada at Chapters and Indigo and promoted by live in-store performances.

Recently D’Amico was winner of the 2007 Ontario Music Awards for Best Male Artist.

The release of ‘Meant to Be’ is another step for D’Amico in his career to take the music world by storm.
