Mike Watt’s New Italian/American Trio, Il Sogno di Marinaio, to Release Debut Album “La Busta Gialla” in January 2013
La Busta Gialla, the debut release from the Italian/American trio Il Sogno di Marinaio (translated as “the sailor’s dream”) featuring bassist Mike Watt will be released on Watt’s clenchedwrench label in January of 2013. The trio also consists of Stefano Pilia and Andrea Belfi.
Regarding the band’s name, Watt states, “First off, it’s in Italian and this important cuz it’s the first time I collaborate with artists from that land and also in their land (by the way, my Ma’s people come from Italy). I am the son of a sailor and so you now know a little about both my parents!”
“The album for me represents us coming from different places and joining together to make a sound singular to the dynamic between us… The process was most interesting, the musical minds of Stefano and Andrea, as well as their spirits as brothers, very much inspired me! I am most big time grateful to them.”
