Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are proud to announce the signing of italian AORsters Mindfeels for the release of their debut album “XXenty”.

Born with the name of Dejanira back in 1994, Mindfeels were originally the trio of Italo Graziana (Soul Seller – Drums), Roberto Barazzotto (Bass) and Luca Carlomagno (Guitars / Keyboards / Violin).

From the beginning, Mindfeels showed their love of American AOR/Westcoast legends, Toto, and built a set list of Toto cover songs for live, instrumental performances. Later, Dejanira joined forces with female singer Raffaella Miani, who fronted the band for the recording of their first, unreleased album, which they self produced.

A few years later, new frontman Davide Gilardino, replaced Raffaella on vocals. The band was completed with the addition of Gloria Strippoli on backing vocals, and Christian Rossetti on keyboards. This new line-up (with the exception of Gloria Strippoli) began recording the second unreleased album “XXenty”, a title chosen in celebration of their more than two decades of music together. The new line-up prompted a new moniker – and Mindfeels was born. They chose the name to represent their infinite love of Toto, led by guitar maestro Steve Lukather, and in particular, their timeless album “Mindfields”.

In 2017, Mindfeels signed with new label, Art Of Melody Music, for the European release of “XXenty” (scheduled for November 17th), and also with ASM – Anderstein Music for a dedicated Japanese release later in December. The cd version will feature liner notes written by Kenneth Bremer, editor in chief of renowned westcoast music website Blue Desert, while the first single, “Soul Has Gone Away”, will be launched with an official video in October.
