The Listenable Music of Mellow Neil

Neil Lucchetta, known simply as Neil, is an Italian singer songwriter. I’ve no idea where in Italy he’s from, not that it really matters. What does matter is his music which is mellowly melancholic in a listenable kind of way.

I guess they only way you can find out how listenable Neil’s music is, is to, well, listen to it.

What follows are a couple of videos of Neil doing his musical thing. His influences are Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, amongst others.

Neil, from what I’ve heard, sings in English which should make his music is more approachable to international audiences. It might even help him get a recording contract or two.

Here are a couple of Neil’s, eminently listenable, tracks.

Pizza, Mafia, Pasta and Scooters, Italy Versus Apple

Oh dear, Italy is not at all happy with the creators of mischievous Apple app ‘What Country’, which succinctly sums up Italy with four words: pizza, mafia, pasta and scooters. Indeed, so discontent with this affront to Italy is Italy’s Minister of Tourism Brambilla that she has instructed lawyers to gird their loins and take legal action against Apple. I think I know who will end up eating humble pie.
