Verona, Italy – Oct 1, 2020 – Till your find your Heart is the fourth edit released throughout the first year since the Italian singer and producer JaKe X kickstarted his solo career. The song came to light in a cold winter night, reminiscing and digging some past moments of his life, kinda forgotten though truly never gone. The artist wanted the vocals to be leading and carrying the listener’s ears, telling how bad it can be as one’s walking the wrong path; on the other hand, finding the strength that lets you break your shackles and embrace your destiny turns to be a new birth, the beginning of a new life.
This fourth edit gets released along with JaKe X’s first videoclip. He feels it goes perfectly with the song and it definitely tells about him and his being. He wanted a location that could bring on screen light and shadow, darkness and brightness. The dancer mimic, movements and sinuosity was meant to be the “light”, the sweet, the smooth part of walking the path to find your heart. The artist’s character impersonates the darker side, the weight that shadow carries and the shackles that are so hard to remove.
He approached music since he was still very young, at the age of 9, firstly beginning to take guitar classes, privately. After 2 years, he joined CSM Music School and continued improving guitar skills under the guidance of Andrea Sarasini. In the meantime, he learns the piano on his own.
At the age of 15, given the passion for writing his own music and singing along, he began vocal studies, under the coaching of Laura Ruscelli. The very same year, he joined the music company “Fabula Musica”, always headed by Laura Ruscelli. The first year, he toured the main theaters of the region playing the role of Febo, within the musical “Notre Dame de Paris”. The year after, Fabula Musica continues the tour with a new show where Giacomo still plays solo roles.
In 2009 he quits the vocal studies and intensifies the live activities with several bands, mostly on rock/metal genre. The need of improving and technical skills to perform and record within this genre leads him to meet Michele Luppi (Vision Divine, Secret Sphere, Whitesnake) and begins his “Voice Control” course. This new path improves dramatically the knowledge, the awareness, the skills and the usage of his voice. He’ll attend Luppi till mid 2014.
In 2013, with his band Burn of Black, he records the first EP of the band, named Danger: the album gets a lot of credits, praising the unexpected great sound that the clean vocals contrasted with heavy riffs and drumming delivered.
In 2014, he joins Lunar Explosion, a young heavy metal band with a great background behind (played with Dennist Stratton, Michael Angelo Batio etc). At the end of 2014 together with Lunar Explosion he shares the stage with Jennifer Batten, historical guitarist of Michael Jackson. Giacomo and Lunar Explosion will play 2 songs on stage with Jennifer. The event still is remembered as one of the greatest. In early 2015, another milestone of his music path: a tour in Brazil supporting Blaze Bayley (ex Iron Maiden). The tour has been an extreme success.
In late 2015, Burn of Black renovate the lineup and change their name to “UnHuman Insurrection”: this is a crucial moment in which, thanks to the partnership with Alpha Omega Management, the band starts to hit big stages and, in general, approaching to a higher level of the international music scenario. Among all things, a must-quote are the gig opened to Sabaton in Riga (Latvia) in December 2016, the one with Lacuna Coil in Saint Petersburg (Russia) in May 2017 and those in Moscow and Samara (Russia) with Arch Enemy, in October 2017.
In 2017 he records the album “Equilibrium?” that will be out in 2018.
On March 2019 together with UnHuman Insurrection he goes back in Russia, this time supporting a part of the tour of At The Gates.
On July he participates at the MetalDays 2019 Festival, performing on the main stage.
