Giulio Beltramo is an alternative singer-songwriter, originally from South Africa but now based in London, UK. A unique alternative tone backed by classical training, with nostalgic contemporary influence grounds the 20-year-old newly on the music scene with three independent releases.
From the outset Giulio has been influenced strongly by the alternative music genre, in its allowance of expressive lyrics and more explorative melodic and harmonic composition.
Giulio’s musical journey began in 2017 with the release of his debut album upside down inside out. This was an essential learning opportunity for the artist and took him to the United Kingdom on a mini-tour, performing at various spots around the country including the 02 Academy Islington
Upon his return Giulio embarked on the production process of hist first single What A Mess, the artist’s second release with over 104,000 streams to date and clocked over 80 radio spins on both local international radio stations.
The song was too featured on Apple Music’s best of the week as well as Alternative Music Hot Tracks, and on Spotify was featured on the editorial playlists New Music Friday, 9 to 5 and Chilled Music playlist, as well as Future Fresh Mzansi
Heartbreak I’ve Become was written in Cape Town, South Africa, and is most probably the most personally specific piece by the artist. However, in keeping with accordance of Giulio’s intentions, the song still offers a profound sense of relatability allowing for a subjective emotional connection with each of its listeners.
The release has already clocked well over 63,000 streams since its release (26/04/19).
The track was featured on Apple Music’s best of the week playlist as well as Spotify’s new music Friday playlist, and too has been playlisted on local and international radio stations clocking in with over 159 radio spins
Giulio has been steadily growing his audience and fan base with various concerts across the country, as well as being featured on a Popsicle TV session and hosted on the Expresso Morning Show. With now over 700 radio spins, charting in the top 20 on radio stations with his new release Play This Game, and live performances on numerous national live television shows Giulio is working on his upcoming release set to drop in the beginning of next year.
With the release of Heartbreak I’ve Become, comes a music video and a series of upcoming performances and conceptual projects. This too marks the first release of 2019 for the artist, however, will be one of a few to come this year.
