• West Coast Music

    As the name indicates West Coast Music has its origin on the American West Coast. The music emphasizes melody, harmonies and arrangements, and the vocal and instrumental performances are always with great skill and of high quality. The music is often performed by pop/rock artists from the American West Coast, but is in no way limited to any geografical area.

Michele Della Bella (a.k.a. Mike Della Bella), approached music in 1977 when he was given a guitar at the age of 12; by then he formed his first band with some teen friends discovering himself as a talented songwriter.

In 1986, after writing many good songs and performing some brilliant shows in Rome, he decided it was time to rise to the next level, founding his first quasi-pro band, the Joint Stock Company, challenged and supported by Faber Farina whom he had met 7 years before and is his biggest fan and main biographer since then.

Faber introduced Mike to the world of music recording so the new band released an album in 1987 titled ‘Something New’.

Jazzed by the result, Mike left playing guitar and learned to play keyboards, then renewed the band releasing a new album in 1989 titled ‘Challenge the Sky’.

The album confirmed Mike’s talent in songwriting thus in early ’90 he decided to quit working with bandmates by starting a new life as songwriter.

After having set up his private recording studio he started writing songs over songs, many of these remained unperformed, due to the lack of a band; many others found their place in a new project called Stamina which released an album in 1994 titled “Affinity of Tribal Love and Perpetual Hate”.
