.: Biography

with Bruno Lauzi

"...Pasquale D’Angelo sings like a cherub, he doesn’t bawl, he believes that if you are right you don’t need to be vulgar, but you can let your voice slip under the closed door to our innermost rooms, knowing that the music is only one and that whoever loves Naples carries it in his or her DNA. Ah! I almost forgot: since that fateful morning when I stumbled on his voice I realized that for him, for the first time, I had to join that profession us artists hate so much: I had to become a record producer!...”
