Carvelli integrates strummed mandolin, dramatic violin, and euro-dance style synths with bangin’ hiphop beats and his own rhymes.
Carvelli is also all about stressing positivity in the music that helped him turn his own life around.
His deep-rooted family values are exemplified by his proudly-displayed tattoo of his Italian grandmother. “She came to Canada off the boat, bringing four kids with her, then worked in a sewing factory,” he says. Carvelli’s father and godfather were both singers, and early exposure to old Italian music left an indelible impression. He’d hear these songs while ambling at his pa’s heels under the poker table, and, even then, he was tapping his hands, tossing out rhymes, and humming those songs. “As I grew up, I thought ‘why isn’t anyone really revamping this?”
Carvelli cites the likes of Sinatra, Pavarotti, and Kanye West as creative inspirations. Earlier tracks he released scored radio play and MTV Miami video exposure.
