Killing Cartisano is Roberta Cartisano, Italian multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and session-musician, and, marking a departure from Roberta's previous recordings under her own name, Killing Cartisano is also Roberta's new incarnation.
Influenced by psychedelic folk-rock, orchestral pop, cinematic funk and trip hop, her last album L’ultimo Cuore - The Last Heart, received rave reviews in her native Italy, where she was called ‘a pioneer of visionary sound’. Her original song-writing is highly personal and vivid, encapsulating the term ‘emotional rock’.
On May 2018, leading up to the forthcoming album release, some tracks have been unleashed into the wild world: 'The Drunk Man' video was premiered on Folk Radio UK, 'Sky Stolen' was premiered on Clash', Let Me Go' was premiered on Backseat Mafia and its video appeared on Americana UK, while the track was broadcast on BBC Radio London.
After Getting in touch with San Francisco's underground music scene during her travels, inspired by Bay Area vibes Roberta morphed into Killing Cartisano.
K.C. is produced by Bay Area producer George S. Rosenthal and Roberta together. A hybrid of Roberta's musical roots and all San Francisco band.
"It's the 'Frisco energy of an old, short-on-melatonin, rock-girl from Southern Europe" says Cartisano.
