The Second Grace is singer-songwriter Fabrizio Cammarata, hailing from Palermo, Sicily. Fabrizio's main inspiration is his hometown, but there is Cuba and North Africa in his songs, along with Bob Dylan, Fabrizio De André and Nick Drake. You can hear the echo of Miriam Makeba's South African lullabies, and songs in which a Cuban trés is unexpectedly in harmony with Indian tabla and electric bass. SG’s second album is ready to release and was recorded and mixed between Sicily, NYC, Portland OR, Tucson AZ and Kingston, Jamaica. It was produced by JD Foster (Calexico, Marc Ribot, Richmond Fontaine) features collaborations by Joey Burns from Calexico and Jairo Zavala (Calexico, DePedro). The Second Grace became a national topic in Italy during spring 2007, being the first artist from Palermo to achieve fame and mainstream interest all over the country. After being featured in a nationwide TV ad, the band licensed their debut album in Italy to Edel Records and has toured constantly since then. The music video for the single Antananarive, shot by Spanish director Sergi Capellas, was on heavy rotation on MTV Italy in Summer 2007 and The Second Grace performed on various national TV programs. The album received enthusiastic reviews from all the biggest music magazines, like Rolling Stone and All Music Guide. From then on, The Second Grace has played many shows around the country and abroad and have shared the stage with Devendra Banhart, Iron & Wine, Dufus, The Devastations, Carmen Consoli, Gang of Four and many others. In 2010 The Second Grace played at South By Southwest, in Austin, TX, for the second time. The first time was in 2008, during a U.S. Tour which included shows in New York City, Washington DC, New Orleans, Memphis, Bath ME, Austin, and saw the band also feature at New England’s NBC television show 207. Numerous international festival and showcase events have endorsed Fabrizio, such as Liverpool Sound City, also Paris’ MaMA Event Oct 2010 saw a enchanting set by The Second Grace. Fabrizio toured Germany’s top singer/songwriter spots in December 2010, with fantastic feedback from the German audience. The new album is ready to be released, which is internationally scheduled for 2011, while touring around the globe. European shows, including some prestigious openings and trips to the North American continent are in the pipeline, while CMW ’11 and SXSW ’11 are already confirmed.
