FIL BO RIVA EU-Tour 2018
Born and raised in Rome, Fil decamped to Dublin for his school years and later relocated to Berlin in 2012. His first EP. If You're Right, It's Alright was released in 2016. He has since made a name for himself all over Europe by touring in support of Matt Corby, Aurora, Milky Chance & AnnenMayKantereit, among others. 2017 saw two sold-out tours with his own band, as well as numerous national and international festival shows. In the light of early successes, Guitarist Felix A. Remm was soon added to the mix. On stage the initial solo project had matured into a solid live duo, and with the addition of two more members the project tours as the current fourpiece line-up. In between concerts, festivals and impressions made, Fil Bo Riva was constantly drawn back to Berlin to continue work on his debut with producer Robert Stephenson.
It was a time of kaleidoscopic experiences and differing priorities: Life in the fast lane on the one hand, being on tour with all it's impressions, new cities, faces and peers, giving autographs for the first time and the realization that there's hundreds of fans chanting along to your songs. On the other hand, there is the total isolation from the world. In the seclusion of the studio, absolutely focused on the process of the Album. Digging deep within himself, and truly forgetting everything around him, being alone with nothing but his music. Nothing else matters. An intense and plentiful process which the artist takes great pleasure in, and which finally let's these songs evolve into their final state step by step. As opposed to the EP, where Fil Bo Riva actually recorded finished songs, here he allows all the experiences and influences to be dragged right off stage to the studio to be further moulded and nurtured with the band and producer. Metaphorically speaking:
If the EP was a photograph of an idea, what we are trying to create with the album is an actual movie. I'm not trying to sound romantic but it's like accumulating different pictures and feelings and we all worship the album format, thats why we want to take the time to shape it, properly.
With the two first teaser-tracks "Head Sonata (Love Control)" and "Blindmaker" up his sleeve the artist proves the anticipation to his album to be correct, it is in it's finishing touches and to be completed shortly.
