ArtisTech Media Signs Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer, and Producer Piero Peluche and Releases Kara Square and Piero Peluche’s Album
The Italian musician Piero Peluche started playing as a drummer in the 80s. He released his first mini album, Professy, with the ragamuffin band Ruff Selectors in the 90s. Ruff Selectors vocalists were Irene Grandi (acclaimed Italian singer, songwriter, and actress) and Simona Bencini (from the well-known Italian band Dirotta su Cuba). Throughout the 2000s, Piero Peluche learned to play many other instruments like bass, keyboards, and guitar while collaborating with numerous local artists and bands including Priscilla Paisley, Lokomotive Stakanov, Gli Astronomi Delle Stelle Spente, Greyscale, and PpoopP. In 2012, Piero decided to dedicate the majority of his energy to the production side of music with remixes of international artists. This decision led him to find Kara Square’s vocals on ccMixter.
When Piero Peluche joined ccMixter.org in the summer of 2012, Kara Square was in the midst of sharing the ukulele songs from her first solo album as she recorded it. During the first month of Piero’s participation on ccMixter, he created eight remixes of Kara’s songs. The quality of his production quickly got Kara’s attention. After a few months of these casual collaborations, Piero and Kara started exchanging emails and developing a musical friendship. The idea for their album, Square Meter, was a natural evolution.
“Square Meter is a perfect example of the collaboration possible through ccMixter.org in our universal language of music,” remarked Emily Richards, CEO of ArtisTech Media. “Kara Square and Piero Peluche’s debut album is an incredible listen from start to finish. The production is radio-ready and songwriting is uniquely captivating. I personally love it!”
Square Meter is an exciting, genre-fusing collection of pop rock originals and remixes. Half of the songs were first released on Kara Square’s Love Songs for Everyone but Especially Uke [2013 TuneTrack release] as simple ukulele folk tunes. Piero Peluche transformed the songs into huge arrangements with full instrumentation and sparkling production. The remaining tracks have never been released on an album until now.
