Pitchtorch, an alt-folk trio with members of The Gutbuckets, Guano Padano and The Vickers, will release self-titled debut album on September, 20th 2019
“Pitchtorch is the ideal fusion of two words– pitchfork and pitch torch – and represents music as a light that can guide you through these dark times, not just musically speaking. Pitchtorch is a tuning fork but it’s also a lantern that marks the path to be taken”.
A tuning fork, a torch that radiates bright sounds. This is in the Pitchtorch logo, made by Nazario Graziano. Pitchtorch is the new project that “tunes” together, for the first time, three musicians – based between Florence and Milan – with relevant and different experiences: guitarist, composer and session player Mario Evangelista (The Gutbuckets, as well as author of music fort short films and commercials), bassist and double bass player Danilo Gallo (Guano Padano) and drummer Marco Biagiotti (The Vickers).
