Savio Rego

Savio Rego is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He describes his style as “chill-out soul,” an amalgam of Latin, Soul, R 'n' B, Jazz, Electronica and Pop. Rego cites as main artistic influences such popular songwriters as Sting, Sade, Joe Satriani, Phil Collins, India Arie, Eric Claption, and John Mayer. Of these, Sting and Phil Collins seem to have left their mark on his signature sound most audibly, though his Latin flavor is arguably the most important ingredient to his eclectic, modern mix of tones.

Rego was born in India and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Rego's early chops were developed playing guitar at age 13 as a hobbyist. He considers himself lucky to have been introduced to a wide range of musical modes at that time.

Savio's songs are seductive, there's no question about it… featuring lyrics revealing open lust and melodies leading straight into hooky choruses. In my world, you can't ask for more. Songs like the Latin-tinged ”Senorita,” the breathy, “Miss You” and the subtly exotic “Jamaican Queen” are sure to reel in new fans real fast
