Richard Orofino Releases 'Fake Me'
Meet 22 y/o Richard Orofino, a Brooklyn-based singer songwriter/producer, in possession of a broad palette of musical skills and boundless inspiration. He began writing and producing music in 2013, starting on piano, moving to drums and later guitar, all while honing his production skills crafting hundreds of bedroom pop gems from the attic of his parent’s house in Northport, NY.
The evolution of his songwriting and vocal style resulted in last year’s “Bella Notte,” produced with Francois Tetaz (Goyte, The Nightgame). His debut set forth an artistic vision and sound template that, while unique in the pop landscape, incorporates diverse influences including Sade, Elliott Smith, New Order & Cocteau Twins.
The evolution continued with the last year’s self-produced EP “SPELL” which combines all these elements into a beautiful blend that will be familiar to all his fans - past, present and future.
