Online PR News – 05-April-2012 – New York, NY – GRAMMY-nominee Al Conti announced that he has signed a European distribution deal with Silenzio Music AG for three of his albums under Shadowside Music. The agreement between the New Age artist and the Germany-based distributor will make three of his albums -- Poeta, Scheherezade and the GRAMMYÂ®-nominated Northern Seas â€“ immediately available to retailers and distributors in and around Europe. Contiâ€™s next album, currently in production, is likely to join the other three in the offering by early 2013.
Conti, a composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, noted â€śI am so glad that my fans in Europe will now be able to more easily access my music, and I appreciate the support that Silenzio gives to New Age music with their holistic approach to the category.â€ť
Utilizing social networking has made it easier than ever for artists to understand their fan base, and it certainly helped Conti realize that a growing number of fans were connecting with him from Europe, South America and the Middle East. Having traveled and lived in South America, Europe and the United States, Contiâ€™s appreciation for exploring various cultures is apparent in his music. Conti released Poeta in 2007, the award-winning Scheherazade in 2008, and Northern Seas in late 2010, albums which are, respectively, inspired by tales of ancient Greece, a legendary Middle Eastern heroine, and Nordic myths of the Viking Age. Internet airplay of Contiâ€™s music on dozens of New Age music radio stations across the globe aided in increasing his international fan base to a degree that made greater worldwide distribution a logical next step.
