Gianluca Firmo (FIRMO /Room Experience) made his first apparence worldwide as the mastermind of Room Experience’s back in 2015.
2018 is the year of Gianluca Firmo’s start to a new solo journey under the name FIRMO. The album is called “Rehab” and set for release in October 19th via Street Symphonies Records.
His solo work offers fresh melodies and wellcrafted lyrics which will stick in your mind and make you sing along once you’ve heard it.
A no fillers record goes from the uptempos and full of energy such “A place for judgement day” / “Heart of Stone” / “No prisoniers” / “Rehab” / to a soft alternative “Unbreakable” and finally to midtempo/slow tracks “Cowboys once, Cowboys forever” / “Until forever comes” / “Everything” / “Didn’t wanna care” keeping the listener sticked to every note and every word coming out of the player.
I could write much more about this album, but you better discover yourself the rest.
One thing is sure, Gianluca FIRMO deliver a modern melodic rock record which will be on the players for a longtime in the years to come.
