Paolo Conte

Paolo Conte was born in Asti in 1937. When he was only a young boy, he began to cultivate what today remain his great passions: American jazz and the figurative arts.He started writing songs at an early age, at first with his brother, Giorgio, and later on his own. He was inspired not only by everyday life, but also by cinema and literature.

In the mid sixties, his highly original style became popular through the voices of the most famous performers of the day: “La coppia più bella del mondo” and “Azzurro” were sung by Celentano, “Insieme a te non ci sto più” by Caterina Caselli, “Tripoli 69” by Patty Pravo, “Messico e nuvole” by Enzo Jannacci, “Genova per noi” and “Onda su onda” by Bruno Lauzi, to name but a few. In 1974 an album entitled “Paolo Conte” was released, followed by another the following year with the same title. They represent his debut as a performer of his own songs.
