Sydney native ALFIO has one of the greatest voices in contemporary music today. This highly charismatic tenor/crooner offers a refreshingly cool and modern throwback to the legendary singers to which he is often compared.
As he continues his travels reaching the shores of almost every continent, his Australian homeland and Italian heritage never stray from his heart or his music. ALFIO divides his time touring between Australia, America and overseas and is rapidly gaining fans all over the world, becoming renowned for his extraordinary vocals and mesmerizing live shows.
While studying voice in Parma, Italy, ALFIO was on the road to becoming a tenor, but the constraints of that particular musical direction clashed with his strong desire to sing contemporary and classic songs while still being able to compose his own music. As a result, ALFIO strayed slightly from becoming a tenor to become what he jokingly calls a “nine-and-a-halfer.”
But when it comes to ALFIO’s deep commitment to his art and the passionate performances which that commitment evokes, he is a solid ten. ALFIO carries a depth and sincerity in his music that might not have been as fully developed had he chosen a path that took him even slightly away from his own calling.

When ALFIO sings, he delivers songs with such strength and passion that all are reminded of vocal powerhouses such as Mario Lanza, Andrea Bocelli, Tom Jones and Celine Dion. His voice glides effortlessly from pianissimo to forte, all the while maintaining complete control of each note.
Captivating his audience with equal parts music journey, powerful vocals and comedic banter, ALFIO effortlessly brings all generations of music lovers together in one audience; and regardless of whether he sings in English, Italian or Spanish, all languages flow as one.
As an accomplished songwriter, musician and composer ALFIO is reaching critical acclaim with his own penned songs such as “Il Nostro Sogno”, a song about the wish for world peace which has been recorded and released by other artists around the world. This hit single pushed his debut album on Warner Music to Top 10 and Gold status in Australia.
“Voce Pura” is his loving tribute to Maestro Luciano Pavarotti, which was written after a wonderful dinner they had together in Sydney and sent to Pavarotti right before his death. Not to mention “Passione e Voluttà”, a theme he sings about frequently: passion and love. Additionally, on September 11, 2011, ALFIO released “The Power of One: 9/11 Unity and Hope”, a music tribute he composed and produced in remembrance of the 10th Anniversary. New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg was so moved by this tribute that “The Power of One” will be a permanent installation in the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
Captivating his audience with equal parts music journey, powerful vocals and comedic banter, ALFIO effortlessly brings all generations of music lovers together in one audience.
Whether sitting solo at the piano, backed by a band or an orchestra, or singing a cappella, ALFIO believes in connecting with his audience.
One of his most appealing qualities in both his music and his life is his ability to entwine generations. His music and live show is a testament to that and speaks to the sentiment for all generations to move forward while not forgetting to appreciate the classics.
With a talent that is uniquely his own, one thing is clear – ALFIO is traveling in his own lane and doing it his way.
