fio!

Fio is  a songwriter and singer with flair and a hip New York City flavor, that at times is down home “chicken fried” southern. That’s because he was born in North Carolina, and moved from Florida to the Big Apple in 2005. He has a worldy maturity beyond his years, perhaps the old soul in a young mans body Jackson Browne sings about. You have a lot to prove when you put ! on your name, and he backs it up as one of my most impressive and grounded winners in the Sonicbids international competition.
 
Fio! has garnered a larger fan base in and around Manhattan, playing regularly at recognized venues such as  the renowned Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, Justin Timberlake’s “Southern Hospitality”, Arlene’s Grocery, and the world famous Bitter End. They have also played such notable venues as 12th and Porter in Nashville, as well as Hotel Café, The Mint and Universal City Walk in Los Angeles.
 
Fio was nominated as Wikimusic Guide’s “Artist to Watch” in 2006, and City Sessions “Top Ten Artist” for the web series “Best of New York” in 2007. In 2009 he was chosen to be the face of Dali speakers for its advertising campaign “Nothing Added, Nothing Taken Away” focusing on true music, after they discovered his music online. Fio has opened for Jason Aldean, Rodney Atkins and Kenny Rogers.
Their first two albums are Jeff Fiorello and Live at Rockwood Music Hall, are available on iTunes.
