David Vito Gregoli – Music Producer

.

Being a music producer these days can require you wear a lot of hats” say Vito.
“Your the arranger, the engineer, the computer technician, the A&R guy, most of the players, the best friend who will be totally honest with you, and sometimes the mixer and mastering engineer. Not an easy job”.
“I’m fortunate that I’ve worked in many different genres and many different situations. I think that gives me a unique perspective. Growing up in a family whose business was TV/Film gave me a good sense of the arc of a musical piece. And that’s important because whether your singing lyrics or playing an instrumental piece, it’s about a story.”

Indeed, Vito’s musical journey has been nothing if not diverse. His earliest musical explorations were rooted in Pop, Rock, Jazz and Blues, and shades of The Beatles, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck can be spotted in his work to this day. By the time he was in his teens, he was already hailed as a guitar virtuoso and working regularly in the L.A. club scene. “I was lucky I could grow a beard, so I passed for legal age,” quips Vito. Surrounded by older and more experienced musicians, Vito soaked up technique and style, but took a right turn in college towards Classical Music. “I’ve loved history since I was a kid, and Classical Music was the soundtrack to every era. At university, my emphasis was in Renaissance music, composition, and later, Spanish guitar.” This Latin influence would later flower into “Organic Nylon,” a Classical guitar CD laced with jazzy, South-of-the-Border flavor and sensuality.

Vito’s classical studies naturally led him to scoring. “I grew up in a theatrical family, and my sister was always calling on me to create music for her shows,” says Vito. His keen dramatic instincts have been tapped for music in film, TV and theatre projects.

Vito uses Mark of the Unicorn Digital Performer DAW exclusively.

Endorsements include Blue Microphones, Godin and Simon & Patrick guitars, Fishman Pickups, and Shubb Capos.

For years, actor/singer Daphne Ashbrook has been asked, "When are you going to finally record 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.
