The phrase that would sum up YOVANNI’s musical journey would be the one he used during his 2012 Qool Music Awards acceptance speech when winning in the Best R&B Dance Artist nomination – “Never ever ever give up on your vision”.

YOVANNI has had quite a few releases that charted on several DJ music and dance music charts (Hello, I Want You, Milkyway, Breathe and his current new single Stay Away.

When he was just 6 years old, he moved to Miami 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 was accepted into the musical theatre program.

YOVANNI wanted the world to hear his work, so the best place to start was obviously the NY. He move to New York and worked in various restaurants to make ends meet.

“Lean on me” by Bill Withers was one of a few songs he covered during that period of time. This very song later won him a spot at the Showtime at the Apollo – one of the toughest singing competition in Harlem.

YOVANNI then worked for many local artists and bands (including Nia Mone’t) recording back vocals for other musicians before he fully concentrated on his solo career and released songs that got attention of critics and public in the US and Europe. Amongst YOVANNI’s influencers, the singer cites Madonna, George Michael and Adam Lambert as his favorite artists.
