Vannelli, Gino

Gino Vannelli (born June 16, 1952) is a Canadian singer-songwriter who had several hit songs in the 1970s and 1980s.

Vannelli was born into an Italian family in Montreal, Quebec. His father, (Joseph) Russ Vannelli, sang with the Montreal dance bands of trumpeters Bix Belair and Maynard Ferguson. His early ambition was to be a drummer. He admired Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich, and he played drums in a pop band while he was in high school. In 1969, at the age of seventeen, he signed a contract with RCA Records, using the name Vann Elli. He studied music theory at McGill University in Montreal.

Herb Alpert, the co-owner of A&M Records, signed Vannelli and released his debut album, Crazy Life, in 1973. His album Brother to Brother (A&M, 1978) produced the single "I Just Wanna Stop", which reached No. 4 on the Billboard magazine chart, No. 1 in Canada, and received a Grammy Award nomination. His next album also produced a top ten hit, "Living Inside Myself".

Gino Vannelli was one of the first Caucasians to appear on the television dance program Soul Train. In 1974, he was invited to tour with Stevie Wonder.

Vannelli received the Juno Awards for the most promising male vocalist of the year in 1975. In 1976, and again 1979, he received Juno Awards for the best male vocalist. He and his brother Joe Vannelli, his musical partner during those years, shared the Juno for Best Production for Brother to Brother in 1979.

Singles "Black Cars" (Polydor, 1985) and "Wild Horses" (Polydor, 1987) made a success. Departing from the jazz-pop idiom, Vannelli released two largely-acoustic jazz discs, Yonder Tree (1995) and Slow Love (1997). Vannelli revisited his interest in western classical music with the song “Parole Per Mio Padre” (A Word to My Father), dedicated to his late father, and composed in the style and tradition of Schubert. The recording came to the attention of Pope John Paul II who requested a performance of the song at the Vatican.
