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.
His debut record, “All I Want,” was self-produced and released to widespread critical and fan acclaim in 2009. His music has been featured on SkyFm, “All About Jazz,” “Smooth Jazz Radio,” “Melodie & Rhythmus,” the Indie Music Sampler, and more. His song “Miss You” has since made its way to international commercial radio on BBRadio in Germany.
Rego's new EP “Someone to Tell” was released 26 October 2013. The album is comprised of six original titles for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes. A cool, streamlined, extremely well-written record played deep in the groove with its heart on its sleeve, “Someone to Tell” asserts Savio Rego as one of the modern day's most sonorous performers and independent recording artists.
