After three years of composition and musical ideas selection, Italian musician Alberto Sonzogni crafted ten songs for his debut album ‘September Man’, set to be released on February 12th 2021.

‘September Man’ sound has been highly driven by Sonzogni’s listenings of artists like Toto, Joe Bonamassa, Eagles and many more.

The result is a unique blend of melodic rock and aor, influenced by country and blues on some tracks, that the album offers to the listeners.

The title September Man refers to Alberto’s life, he’s born on September 20th and lives in road XX September in his city of Bergamo, Italy. September is also the end of summer, a melancholic month that carries moments of reflection with it.

Introspection is the main theme on the album’s lyrics, written by singer Gessica Pirola. On the entire record there’s a continue research for awareness, about love, human fear and today world’s problems.

Sonzogni recorded the album with his band that features Gessica Pirola – vocals; Daniele Finazzi – guitars; Nicola Gullotto – Bass; Stefano Guidi; Drums. Besides the main band various special guests appear on September Man (see credits).
