Meeting Beatrice Dis for a New Year catch up

1419001970262162316_3948734597

It has been a few weeks from the latest news; Beatrice Dis opened several streaming services (Spotify, Soundcloud, IndieSound) to make her “Show me” debut single available to a wider audience and a YouTube channel that includes the music video of “Show me” and 5 interviews.

We are meeting today in Prato, Italy,  where she’s spending some off time before returning to London, where she lives and works with her partner, drummer and composer Mimí Out.

It’s been an intense year for you and your music career. How did it start?

It started long before 2016. Deciding to be in charge of my own music productions and career management was not easy. When I was younger I would care about the music, the show, the outfit..but I was never fascinated by the business that makes the music move and reach the audience. So the record label opened a  completely new challenge for me.

You are Italian and your lyrics are in English. After five years in London does it come natural or is it a slow process?

It is actually quite natural. I always get inspired by the music that Joe Foresta and Mimí Out create. I have an idea, a story or a message that I want to talk about and the first thing I do is write down the concepts with the keywords that I want to use. Then I create the melody and build the song. Sometimes I do get stuck though but it then eventually comes together!!

The music video for your debut song “Show me” stands out for its quality and it’s quite rare for an independent production to have such a beautiful work of art. How did you get to do it?

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your words. The video was shot in a studio in Hackney,  Cre8 Studio London, and it was directed, shot and edited by Eleonora Cristin. She came up with the idea of the veil and the contraposition of the black and white. I have danced and acted for a few years so I was very happy to experiment during the shooting. We are very proud to have such a beautiful video as an introduction for my solo project. It is true, we are small team but we are lucky enough to work with great professionals! Visuals are very important and we want to play our cards well!

What’s your plan for 2017?

We plan to release my second single in January. Of course there’ll be a music video, hopefully the audience will like it as much as the first one! We are also planning to record some acoustic gigs in the next few months. We are working on many songs and we have some great collaborations that we can’t wait to share with all of you guys. London is a great place to be when you’re making music!

Is there any plan for a tour in England or Europe?

It’s too soon to say.. I’ve only released one song, I still need to build my own audience. I haven’t really exposed myself yet, I need to reach a bigger audience before talking about a proper tour. Nevertheless we are certainly going to start playing live! I’d like to sing my own songs, including the unreleased ones, and covers from the artists I love.

What do you wish for in the New Year?

First of all, good health; we take it for granted too easily. Then happiness, a profound sense of “feeling good”. I hope that 2017 will help my music career develop. I wish to play on beautiful stages, surrounded by talented musicians. I dream of shooting great videos and making important collaborations. I like art contamination so I hope I will be able to mix my talent with other artists’. I want to feel good in my own skin, proud of what I do.. Maybe it’s a lot to ask for but I am actually working to make this dream reality!

Before the Christmas holidays Beatrice Dis hints to us that news is soon to follow her debut single “Show me”; she just launched her official YouTube channel. You can find the music video of “Show me” and a playlist of 5 interviews that present her music project in its first steps.

The latest interview was released with the launch of the channel; Beatrice Dis explains how she maintains her artistic freedom by managing her career personally. The record label that produces and manages her music, Durendala Records, is actually founded by her and Domenico Autuori (aka the drummer/composer Mimì Out).

Don’t forget she also released an a cappella version of the song and is available for free to everyone who purchase the song and contact info@durendalarecords.com (listen here: https://soundcloud.com/user-253326631/show-me-a-cappella )

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After the launch of her debut single “Show me”, Beatrice Dis has demonstrated she likes to keep her followers on the edge with one surprise after another. After the beautiful music video was released on YouTube and Vevo, Beatrice shared a delightful making-of and an interview where she recollects how the video came to life. She takes us back in time and  describes how she recorded the first draft of the song (just vocals) and sent it over to her arrangers.
An a cappella bonus track is in fact available to all those who purchased “Show me” on digital retailers (iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon mp3..); you just need to send an email to info@durendalarecords.com with a proof of purchase and you’ll receive the vocals of the song for free.
The funny part is that Beatrice is inviting everyone who know how to play an instrument  to record their own arrangement and send it over in a video! It’ll certainly be interesting to see how people can re-interpret the same song using their own capabilities and sensitivity. Some of the videos will then be posted on Beatrice Dis facebook page. bit.ly/BEATRICEfbpage

Behind the scenes of the music video of “Show me” with Beatrice Dis

Beatrice Dis really wants to spoil her followers. Only a couple of weeks ago she released the music video for her debut single “Show me” and now she takes us behind the scenes.

In a special interview published on her Facebook page, Beatrice Dis describes how they came up with the idea for the video. Most of the credit goes to the female videographer who shot and edited the video, Eleonora Cristin. They worked at Cre8studios in London. The video is in black and white, the atmosphere is evanescent: bodies are struggling to come out of a white fabric and Beatrice herself proves her dancing skills moving along with the music.

In the interview she explains how the video interprets the meaning of the song: fighting our fears and showing ourselves for what we are. Loving relationships can be complicated especially at the beginning and with this song Beatrice wants to instil some confidence. Certainly a song not to miss, with the beautiful arrangement and production cured by a strong team: Joe Foresta, Mimí Out and Barnabas. The mastering of the song was done in beautiful Tuscany, Italy, at the White Sound studio by Tommy Bianchi. 

The video is a gem that you can find on YouTube. The song is available on iTunes, Google play, Amazon MP3.. and on streaming services like Spotify.

Today the debut single SHOW ME reveals who BEATRICE DIS is.

BEATRICE DIS speaks up about “Show me”

“Show me” is the first single released by singer-songwriter Beatrice Dis.

show-me_bodypic

 She admits writing lyrics and melody a while back, not having in mind the music that was needed. But she trusted her team: Giuseppe Foresta, Mimi Out and Barnabas.

Arranging and producing the song was not an easy task for them; the harmony of the backing vocals are so complex that they require a very detailed instrumental.

The drumming pattern is the signature of this uptempo song. Mimi Out has wisely fused the tradition of the marching bands with an African feeling. His inspirations were songs by Toto and Michael Jackson. Then Joe Foresta shifted the original tempo of the chorus and made it catchy. “Show me” was born!

Beatrice Dis speaks about relationships that lack trust and honesty. Love is about accepting and loving all the flaws together with the strengths. Relationships need to be put on the line to believe they can last. Or, at least, this is her piece of advice!

“Show me” is out on the main digital retailers from Sunday 2nd October.

BEATRICE DIS rewrites her story

The singer-songwriter Beatrice Dis has recently released her first interview and received a huge support by her online followers; she has in fact finally announced the release of her debut single “Show me” on Sunday 2nd October.

In the video interview you can see a confident Beatrice talking proudly about her new project; she has teamed up with Joe Foresta, Mimi Out and Barnabas for the arrangement and production of her songs. “Show me” is the first single and will be followed by another one in the Winter.

Her music is not the ordinary pop music: backing vocals are massively present, her lead vocals are free on top of the music, the detailed arrangement mixes a classic heritage with modern instruments, the melodies are soft and easy. Just beautiful music. And then the lyrics.

Beatrice takes inspiration from her life and her friends’ experiences; she touches all the cords of the soul and is ready to open up totally for her audience.

Enjoy her company in this first interview.

 

Debut Single for BEATRICE DIS

London-based singer-songwriter Beatrice Dis will launch her debut single “Show me” on the 2nd October along with a music video shot at Cre8 Studio London by the video maker Eleonora Cristin.

Beatrice is originally from Italy but she has lived and worked in London for the last 5 years. “I am so excited about the launch of “Show me”. I can’t wait to share my music! It has been a long journey for me and my team and we are very proud of what we have accomplished” says Beatrice.

The song lyrics and melody were entirely written by Beatrice while the arrangement was created by Joe Foresta and Mimi Out who are “the dream-team any artist would desire”, Beatrice says. Joe Foresta is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who teamed up with Beatrice years ago; they have a strong personal and musical connection so even when they are apart they create intense songs. At the same time they met Mimi Out, born as a drummer and then developed into a multi-instrumentalist and arranger.

Beatrice, Joe and Mimi admit to having different musical taste but here lies the strength of their music. The combination of those influences is the secret behind their songs uniqueness. Among the artists and performers they take inspiration from: Ellie Goulding, Years and Years, Phil Collins, Beyonce, 30 seconds to Mars, Sting (not a coincidence that the 2nd of October is his birthday!) and the list continues.

In charge of the music production is Barnabas, a new name in the industry, who is in charge of every note that comes out from this new record label called Durendala Records, in which Beatrice is its first artist.

Mimi and Beatrice are the founders and directors of the label and although now “Beatrice Dis” is taking most of their time, they plan to include further names under their wings in the future. “Durendala Records was born to protect our artistic identity. It’s a bet, but we’re ready to take risks.”

London-based Beatrice will launch her single “Show me” and its music video on the same day, Sunday 2nd October. “My debut single “Show me” talks about dishonest relationships, those times when you want to be with someone so much that you end up hiding your little quirks to not risk ruining your love story! You only show the best of yourself to make the other person proud..but for how long can you fake it? Wouldn’t it be better to show yourself for who you are and be proud of all the flaws? Put the relationship at risk and challenge it!” She says she takes inspirations from her life and friends’ experiences; she likes to talk about matters that really touch her.

The music video was directed by the female video maker Eleonora Cristin at the Cre8 Studio London located in lively Hackney. It was an indoor shooting of 2 intense days where Beatrice proved her worth with some good dancing moves.

From Sunday 2nd October “Show me” will be available on iTunes, Spotify and all major digital retailers. Follow Beatrice Dis on her Facebook and Twitter page for daily updates.
