Nero Kane is an Italian psych dark folk songwriter with an intimate, minimal and decadent path. Voice and guitar combine his European roots to American desert sound in a project full of emotional visions. His debut LP “Love In A Dying World” was recorded and produced in Los Angeles by Joe Cardamone (The Icarus Line) and released on November 30th, 2018 for LA art collective American Primitive. His sound has been critically defined as a suspended and crepuscular music where the melancholy of Nick Cave and the last Johnny Cash are mixed in a spare psych-folk and stark blues-rock. The album was launched with an experimental film shot in California by Italian visual artist, performer and filmmaker Samantha Stella, who joins Nero Kane in the live set on vocals and keyboards. The film was screened in museums and art galleries. The duo performed in many Italian and European venues, including theaters and churches. His second album “Tales of Faith and Lunacy”, recorded and produced in Italy by Matt Bordin (Squadra Omega) of Outside Inside Studio (Squadra Omega), is released on October 30th, 2020 via Berlin psych label Nasoni Records (vinyl LP), and Italian labels BloodRock Records (CD) and Anacortes Records (cassette). “Tales of Faith and Lunacy” is a visionary story with a cinematic flavor, a timeless journey conceived in a personal vision of faith between spirituality and passion. The album, featuring Samantha Stella as singer, musician and lyricist, and Nicola Manzan (Bologna Violenta) as guest violinist, unfolds in a desert landscape where medieval European mystical influences blend with the flavour of the American West to weave a gloomy, minimal psychedelia.
