Our Talent



FCO is the current stage of a music project started in Rome in 1998 by the singer/songwriter Simone Baldi. 

Simone travelled, worked and lived a great part of his life in international environments.  Simone’s world is a melting pot where people from around the planet share their lives and different cultures come together.  A native Italian speaker, he writes his lyrics in English – the language he speaks to tell his friends about his personal stories and experiences.  Simone’s music also reflects his global background and is a present day expression of the rock tradition contaminated by an Italian melodic sound.

Simone played his music in Italy and abroad with various formations in the past decade. FCO  performed together in clubs, bars and festivals in and out of Rome.  Towards the end of 2007, the independent label Orange Park Records decided to produce Simone’s music. 

The debut album “FCO”, soon to be released, has been recorded at the NGR Studio of Rome under the supervision of Francesco De Nigris and has been mastered at the Sterling Sound of New York by Leon Zarvos.  The single “Free” will be launched ‘on air’ in the USA in late 2008.

FCO are currently preparing a tour that will touch USA, the Netherlands and Eastern Europe in 2009.  In the meanwhile they continue performing around Italy.
