Diego Sandrin realized he wanted to be a performer at age 8, when he dressed up like a cowboy and sang Adriano Celentano songsâemulating the Italian singer, songwriter, comedian and actor. Thatâs an unlikely starting point for this âson of sailors and bricklayersâ who, as a teen, turned away from an offer of a professional soccer contract to pursue a passion for punk. His first success in the music business occurred at age 16, when his band Ice and the Iced scored a recording contract. Compulsory military service ended that portion of the dream, but he was undeterred. He made his way to the States, landing first in Baton Rouge where he was taken with delta jazz and blues. Sandrin returned to Italy and formed Sentemo Recordsâa jazz labelâbefore realizing that he was spending so much time on the business side of the recording studio glass that he was ignoring his creativity. Sandrin sold Sentemo and once again returned to the U.S. for inspirationâthis time landing in Los Angeles, where his first band included an all-female quarted. He got his big stateside break when Lisa Marie Presley literally grabbed him off a stage and co-wrote a song, âGone,â which appeared on her To Whom It May Concern album, which would sell over 900,000 copies. Heâs clearly traveled the âroad less taken.â as An almost-pure experiential songwriter, he not only writes what he observesâhe lives it. âI have this strange technique for my writing; I observe something or imagine it from something I see and then I try to become that character.â Sandrin has kept his eyes closed for a day to experience blindness, spent a week in a wheelchair to write about a person with a disability, and lived in a rented trailer in Vegas to effect a âwhite trashâ experience. The result is lyrics that are poignant, deep and lodge in his listenersâ souls. The result is songwriting that touches a wide range of universal themes: â45,000,000 and 1â is an anthem to everlasting love; âAged 14 Yearsâ tells the story of a boy on trial for killing his abusive father; and âMy American Friends,â a commentary on the consequences of shallow friendship. âI want them to feel like they want to have the CD and be alone in their cars so they can listen to the stories and imagine itâs them singing; that the songs are about them and their life,â he says. His listeners will experience that with a new CD, A Fine Day Between Addictions, which was recorded at Acustic Studio in Treviso near Venice and will be released at the end of July. He veered away from convention here, too, by having Romeo Toffanetti produce the album. Toffanetti, a movie director, had never stepped into a recording studio before working on the album. âI thought he would give the songs a fresh slant because theyâd be driven by the world of storytelling and image synching,â Sandrin says. âHe always kept the connection between my word-pictures and the images on film in mind.â In the song "45.000.000 and one,â the drummer used roses instead of drumsticksâan arresting visual in itself, but even more striking when the sound is actually captured as part of the recording.â He is an indie Renaissance man, a collector of scotch; sailor; painter; and regular in L.A. rooms such as HOB, Viper Room, Troubadour, Gig, Dragonfly and Luna Park. His regular following includes Lisa Marie Presley, Juliette Lewis, Daryl Hannah, Giovanni Ribisi, Jason Lee, and Danny Masterson. He has written for Brooklyn South and indie movies. Through it all, Diego Sandrin has managed to maintain a very practical, level-headed view of the industry and the challenges heâll face as a recording artist. âThe biggest challenge is to get someone to listen to your CD not once, but twice,â he says. âThat will bring a deal with a label that can offer me financial security while I write and play.â Maybe heâll take an unusual path to achieve that, maybe he wonât. One thing is certain: once A Fine Day Between Addictions is released, this multi-talented artist will see his popularity grow exponentially.
