“The industry has always tried to put music and musicians in a box.…
since defining genres makes marketing easier,”

says producer/multi-instrumentalist David Vito Gregoli, aka Vito.

 

“Nowadays, people are more sophisticated.
Through new media they’ve been exposed to fresh sounds and ideas, including genre-busting ‘fusions’ that often defy categorizations.
The music I create is a reflection of this diversity, and I bring an expanded musical perspective to acts I produce.

That’s the reason I started Dharmapala Records.”

Actor/singer Daphne Ashbrook, by popular demand, finally records an album...
Inspired by singer/songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin & Patty Griffin, the artist chose tunes that profoundly touched her heart. “I love songs that tell stories, like ‘Useless Desires’ by Patty Griffin & Joni’s ‘Furry Sings the Blues’. They make you feel something, something real.” Just as her acting skills range from the dramatic to the comedic, Daphne also was attracted to songs with ironic humor, like Griffin’s “One Big Love”, the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place” & the jazzy Billie Holiday-esque “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” which is a tongue-in-cheek nod to her best known film role in Doctor Who. “Of course, Rickie Lee Jones’ ‘Horses’ is my ode to my daughter,” Daphne says.
