The group inhabits the intersection of the Italian pop standard and the soaring power ballad, the same sweet spot that has carried performers like Mr. Bocelli and Il Divo to superstardom.
The New York Times
In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble, appeared on the popular Italian talent show Ti Lascio Una Canzone and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard O Sole Mio.
It wasn't long before IL VOLO's managers; Michele Torpedine (who has looked after the careers of Andrea Bocelli and Italian rock star Zucchero) and world renowned singer/producer Tony Renis who landed a worldwide recording contract for the trio with Universal Music Group which released IL VOLO's self-titled debut album in Italy November 2010.
The album was a major success, paving the way for a record deal with Geffen in the US, the first time an Italian artist has signed with the label. There's been no resting on any laurels since then though - this 2014 tour follows the release of not one but two albums last year, Mas Que Amor and Buon Natale: The Christmas Album.
