On November 5th 2021 the new Concept-EP "AIRAM R. - the other SIDE of me" is officially released by Believe Music, available on all music digital stores and streaming platforms to provide a new listening experience in EDM music influenced by various music styles. The EP composed by 4 tracks, each of which contributes to giving meaning as a whole, is also accompanied by the official video, published on her YouTube channel, for the song My Identity. Introspective musical journey in search of oneself made of fears, reflections, expectations and vision in a constant transformation, between reality and illusion.
Inspired by the famous phrase "Don't you know, If you don't step outside yourself, you'll never discover who you are'" by José Saramago in The Tale of the Unknown Island, Raffaella takes us into a game of mirrors, upside images, in the continuous perception of one's own being in seeing his figure reflected and distorted. A journey that reserves many surprises between questions and answers "... who are you, my double image, as a perfect stranger you make me doubt myself ...", from the search for who we really are to the realization of one's own awareness, in spite of a society that it would take molded us with its customs and traditions.
Airam R. - the other SIDE of me is the result of Raffaella's years of study as DJ Producer and Beat Maker as a real new debut with a renewed visual style, new choices in sound design and instrumentation, made of modern sounds, synth effects and electronic elements again experimenting with her versatile voice.
Currently, her music is playing on many national and international fm. and web radios and her artistic career is constantly evolving with many collaborations in different music genres.
What people say about her music from all around the world:
"The beautiful, trilingual Italian has delivered an exquisite assemblage of passionate pop gems, fragments of the full regalia she will one day inhabit as a world-famous singer and songwriter - her new EP is that promising." Best EP Pop/Rock August 2015 by Akademia Music Award
" 'Angels Of The Silence' is a gorgeous paean to the silent sacrifice of many - Raffaella Piccirillo has created an anthem for the ages with this gorgeously lensed video" September 2016 Best Music Video Alternative Rock by Akademia Music Award
"Wow! Great song and artist! Raffaella Piccirillo from Cremona (Italy) lays down a beautiful track here. This song def gave me the tingles. Beautiful voice, the production is a A+ and very uplifting. This track gives people hope" (Wednesday, February 7, 2018 Sister Dorothy's Music Blog)
"It is a fact that there is no shortage of acoustic singer songwriters but Raffaella Piccirillo manages to distinguish herself with a delightfully accented and somewhat theatrical vocal style and a generally spirited approach to the performance of her song Lost" ( July 23, 2017 Bluesbunny)
“Una voz italiana que seduce.
Lo úlmo que nos había llamado la atención de la península itálica fue ese tsunami de bandas metaleras de mediados de la década de 1990 como Lacuna Coil, Theatres des Vampires y Rhapsody Of Fire entre otras. Luego han surgido algunas otras de menor vuelo pero lo que nos impresionó fueron la calidad, versalidad y duclidad de las vocalistas de las primeras bandas mencionadas, Crisna Scabbia y Sonya Scarlet respecvamente. A parr de allí pusimos el ojo en las femmes italianas porque nos pareció suamamente interesante como hecho arsco que pudieran lograr voces tan frescas como femeninas y poderosas, muy disnta la impronta de otras mujeres del eslo y sus variantes. En esta oportunidad una chica nacida en 1978 y criada a la sombra de Torrazzo de Cremona - Italia -, ciudad famosa por su famoso turrón y la producción de instrumentos de cuerda que están vinculados a las figuras de Stradivari, Guarneri y Ama. Estamos hablando de Raffaella Piccirillo” (domingo, 9 de junio de 2019 DELTA80, Argentina)
"LOST by Raffaella Piccirillo is a fresh and original composition that sings about lost love without the overall use of bluesy, minor tones and without lyrics of lost hope in a challenging romantic situation. This interesting and pleasant surprise of bright instrumentals coupled with hopeful and committed romantic lyrics and vocal styling makes what is commonly a sad song one that is hopeful as the listener can hear the happiness coming around the corner. Nice. " (21st February 2021, Grace B. from United States)
“Diamo il benvenuto a questo nuovo progetto musicale di Raffaella Piccirillo, un progetto musicale che ci gasa tanto e Raffaella che sia indie rock o electro dimostra sempre di “avere la musica nel sangue” e di avere quel quid che forse ad altri manca” by System Failure webzine (12th November 2021, from Italy)
