Vince Gelonese Is Bringing the Music Thunder From Down Under

The Popular Australian Indie Artist Is Living Out 'Every Dream,' Making Inroads in the U.S. With His Debut Single That Hit the Top 5 and Has Spent More Than 20 Weeks on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales Chart

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2013) - You know that great song you wrote a few years ago but tossed aside because you got too busy being successful doing other things? Early in 2013, Australian indie artist Vince Gelonese discovered one of those gems in his own stash, got it to the right people in the U.S. and is now living "Every Dream" -- making an explosive smash Stateside with his infectious and romantic debut single.

Truly living up to its title, "Every Dream" was an immediate sensation this past summer, ultimately reaching #4 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart. It has remained on the chart for more than 20 weeks and is still in the Top Ten several months later.

Gelonese's track is building similar momentum on Adult Contemporary radio, and the 400 spins a week it has been receiving have propelled it into the Top 50 on the FMQB AC40 Chart. The Italian-born singer-songwriter, who started out as a rocker in high school and later took private classical and opera training, just wrapped shooting his first music video for the song.

As the only Australian adult contemporary artist currently on the U.S. charts, Gelonese is primed to follow in the footsteps of other musical greats who emerged from that country, like The Bee Gees, Kylie Minogue and Air Supply. Interestingly, while Gelonese is quickly becoming known as an artist in the U.S., he is still relatively under the radar back home.

Gelonese already has several follow-up singles in the works. His marketing consultant, Steve Pina of Los Angeles based Omni Entertainment, quickly hooked him up to collaborate in the studio with veteran songwriter/producer Ronnie King, who has worked with 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, Mariah Carey, The Offspring, Kottonmouth Kings and the Hawaiian rock band Pepper.

Gelonese will be releasing his next single, a ballad about a broken-hearted guy called "The Loser," in December. Singer Shayna Gee adds emotional poignancy by duetting with Gelonese on the last part of the song -- providing what he calls the "female response."
