Xavier Casellas

I was born in Calella, a town by the Mediterranean near Barcelona, Spain. My father was definetly not a musician, but he had this obsession with the great old crooners and big bands from the 40's. Frank Sinatra, conducted by Nelson Riddle, Tony Bennet, Ella Fitzgerald and Loui Armstrong, Nat Cole, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington... and so many others. All those great musicians and singers use to open wide my ears and my soul to a music that I always felt very close. I spent hours singing along to the vinyl records that he used to play all the time.

Many years later, and I bet my “singalongs” had a lot to do with it, I made a profession out of singing. I had the chance to play other styles of music in live venues and TV. Music like rock and roll, country music, dance, latin, pop, etc.
