Stefano De Stefano began his career in music on the Italian circuit as the member of a local band before going solo with his project An Early Bird. Debut album "Of Ghosts & Marvels" was released in October 2018, followed by the "In Depths" EP—released in 2019—and the full album "Echoes of Unspoken Words" which came out last year.
"Fishes in the Ocean" is his first single drop of the new year, and finds him blending a crisp finger-style guitar with acoustic piano and a prominent falsetto vocal. Stefano De Stefano grew up in Naples, and has toured extensively across Europe, sharing stages alongside artists like Joshua Radin, Jake Bugg, S. Carey, Stu Larsen, Grant-Lee Phillips, and Dan Owen.
This preview from his latest album project feels both cinematic and anthemic, as De Stefano constructs a haunting melody and subtle vocal harmony from the bones of personal introspection. As we glide through waves of melancholy, thoughtfulness, and an appreciation for the gift of life, we are humbled by the near-infinite set of possibilities that are offered to us. With "Fishes in the Ocean," An Early Bird delivers a gratifying retrospective that is rooted in the folk traditions of emotional intimacy and profound yearning.
