"Lorenzo Bertocchini is like a son to me: so attentive and so rebellious".
Lorenzo Bertocchini is a unique songsmith that hails from Varese (northern Italy) where he fronts a folk-rock band called The Apple Pirates.
With them, or solo, he has performed in Europe and in the USA, providing the audiences with moving songs full of strong melodies, biting irony and deeply personal lyrics.
With a lot of hard work and true devotion to his roots-rock roots, Lorenzo has built himself the solid reputation that he enjoys in the Italian music scene today.
His fan base in Europe has propelled him to the top of the Americana list overseas.
Over the years, Lorenzo has toured with Dan Bern, Elliott Murphy, Erin Sax Seymour and Ruth Gerson, shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Pete Yorn, Jesse Malin and Rosie Flores, and shared bills with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Eric Andersen and Bob Neuwirth.
He has performed on Italian and French National TV; and he can also be seen on two films: he made special appearances in Renzo Martinelli’s “La bambina dalle mani sporche” (with Ornella Muti, Remo Girone, Philippe Leroy and Sebastiano Somma) and in Marco Bellocchio’s forthcoming “Sorelle 2”.
Lorenzo’s discography started in 1998, when him and The Apple Pirates released their debut CD, “Greatest Hits”, featuring 13 originals and two covers: Elliott Murphy’s “Time To Love Again” (previously unreleased) and Bruce Springsteen’s “Two For The Road”.
In 2002, four unreleased Lorenzo Bertocchini songs came out on the compilation “Musica Va” (2 were performed by Lorenzo’s band, 2 others were covered by Italian pop singers).
That same year, Lorenzo’s version of “Something Like Steve McQueen” appeared on “Lookin’ For A Hero”, an Elliott Murphy tribute-CD.
In 2004, he released his first solo CD titled “Whatever Happens Next”, featuring 26 original tunes showing off his wide musical range encompassing soulful ballads to straightforward rock’n’roll, as well as some spicy country-folk, and your basic down and dirty blues.
The CD includes all the variety of textures, speeds, and styles that can coexist on an americana CD. The booklet contains a unique portrait by his multi-talented artist and friend Dan Bern, in addition to liner notes by old pal Elliott Murphy.
In 2007, Lorenzo released “Live At The Sidewalk Café”: 13 songs, 48 minutes of music and fun, the CD was recorded on December 6, 2006 in the heart of New York City’s East Village. It features Lorenzo ‘solo and acoustic’ and captures the incredible energy in the room the night of this performance.
The flow of these songs takes you on a tuneful journey full of strong melodies along with biting irony.
At the beginning of the show, when Lorenzo asked if anybody had been to his hometown, a resounding “Yes!” was shouted out by someone in the audience.
He thought this was a joke, but in fact it was Muzz Skillings, bass player for Living Color.
It wasn’t until after the show that the two had a laugh and, over drinks, discussed Muzz’s visit to Lorenzo’s part of the world.
In 2009, Lorenzo and his band, The Apple Pirates, released “Uncertain, Texas”, a new album packed with 15 truthful, strikingly original, new songs wrapped in irony or just plain naked.
A lot of characters meet in this album: Elvis, Doctor House, Valentino Rossi, Jesus, Amy Winehouse, Robert De Niro, Gennaro Gattuso, Tom Waits, Unlce Fester, the Dalai Lama, Spike Lee, Bob Dylan and Barrack Obama, only to name a few.
This CD is also available here. Get it, and play it loud: you won’t regret it!
With The Apple Pirates or solo, Lorenzo Bertocchini is constantly on tour, including benefit concerts for the Emergency bringing medical help to civil victims in war torn areas around the world.
