Consuelo

Consuelo started out as a classical pianist in Milan where she was borne. Consuelo's determination to become an established musician/composer and her interests in production led her to move to Manchester in 1995, where she graduated in BA (Hons) Popular Music & Recording at Salford University, Greater Manchester, specialising in composition.
Consuelos focus is now the realisation of her debut album as a singer-songwriter. She moved to Cornwall January 2006 to concentrate on this project, away from distractions. Whilst here she collaborated with Hepzibahbroom (formely Zoe Pollock/Young, who composed and performed Sunshine On A Rainy Day), composing and playing the piano part on Hepzibahbroom' song Love Delights Us http://www.myspace.com/hepzibahbroom and recorded an acoustic EP "Bittersweet" at the VIP Lounge with producer Dare Mason http://www.viplounge.org.uk/about-2/dare/
The Ep was reviewed on the Bournemouth Daily Echo in 2007 by Sarah Cartlidge, who wrote:
"Singer songwriter Consuelo with a collection of six, piano-led songs are anadorned and uncomplicated but commanding and touch on her classical background, as well as her love of pop and melodic rock, glossed with her strong Italian accent, which sounds particularly pronunced on tracks I Told You That I Love You and Keep It 4 Yourself. Bittersweet makes for imaginative and atmospheric listening
Sara Cartlidge also reviewed a collection of songs, namely Ep2 (some of the recordings need to be completed) in the same newspaper this year 2011 writing:
"Italian-borne singer-songwriter Consuelo deliveres another passionate and affecting EP, following on from Bittersweet in 2007. The classically trained pianist is emotionally charged during atmospheric opener See the Light, before showcasing a gentler side lyrically and musically in Short But Intense, proving that she's completely at ease veering from edgy to soft and melodic in a heartbeat".
As a solo artist, Consuelo has played at the Acorn theatre Penzance, Cornwall, and in the Bournemouth area. She has recently finished recording "Almost Isn't Good Enough" with a fuller production, with producer Joe Grouse, mastered by Dick Beetham http://www.360mastering.co.uk/engineers/dick-beetham
Consuelo signed her first publishing deal with Sky rocket records on 20 july 2011. This will hopefully mark the start of Consuelo's career as a pro composer/musician http://www.skyrocketrecords.co.uk/#/featured-song-writers/4552838537
