Sal Piamonte Resources
Sal Piamonte may hail from the same hometown as Alanis Morissette and his vibe may capture some of his homegirl’s rebellious fire, but “Take Me Home”—the blistering first single from the Ottawa born singer/songwriter’ latest album Lives in Devil City—puts the listener square in the heart of Alabama and Louisiana, where soul-driven Southern rock reigns. Since his early forays into the music world—he released his solo debut EP Moments They Pass in 2006—Piamonte both in studio and onstage has epitomized the “never say die” attitude. His songs are driven by stories of triumph, tragedy, conquest and a wealth of life experiences connected to a powerful mystical gift of intuition and psychic awareness. A psychological profiler by day and musical shaman by night, he’s bold about declaring his feeling that many of his songs have “written themselves,” as though he is literally pulling the ideas out of the sky. He is currently signed to the publishing company 2850 Music, whose other artists include Lionel Richie, GroupLove and John Waite.Expanding on his numerous past successes, the singer’s deep connections to the universe are translating perfectly to the hearts of thousands of listeners throughout Canada. “Take Me Home” received adds and features on stations such as The Wave in Yarmouth, NS, 99.1 in Wallaceburg, ON, 106.1 The Goat in Lloydsminster AB, Rock 101 Radio and The Wolf 106 in Naniamo, BC. He also recently earned first place as well as Artist of the Month on the New Artist Online voting at CKXSFM’s fan polls. He is currently ranking at #7 (out of hundreds) for a coveted showcase spot in the 2012 MIDEM Showcase competition in Cannes. His upcoming show at the Toronto Independent Music Awards is the latest of hundreds of performances throughout Canada, including performances at Massey Hall in Toronto, where he has shared the stage with Sheriff/Alias, Animotion, Alan Frew of Glass Tiger, Kevin Hearn of Barenaked Ladies and others. Fans have been mesmerized by a sound that the Canadian media has found unique ways to describe over the years.
