Francesco Lucarelli's "Find The Light"

Long time CSNY fan in Italy Francesco Lucarelli has released a CD titled "Find The Light" that features Graham Nash on a track.

From an interview with Francesco Lucarelli on 4 Way Siteby Dolf van Stijgeren and John Kwit:
Anything in life is possible, that is, if one is willing to work hard enough and follow your dream.

Almost three decades ago, Francesco Lucarelli was a young man with a simple love for the music of CSN. Born and raised in Rome, Italy, Francesco is founder of the infamous CSN&Y fanzine "Wooden Nickel." Later, he contributed to the booklet of Crosby Stills & Nash's box-set and is one of the authors of the 3-book biography "Crosby Stills Nash and sometimes Young". As a photographer, his work has been displayed on the booklet of CPR's "Just Like Gravity", and on David Crosby's book "Since Then: How I Survived Everything and Lived to Tell About it."

But Francesco is also a singer-songwriter! In the fall of 2010, he released some of his own songs on "Find The Light", a tribute to the early 70's Southern California singer-songwriter scene. The album was mixed by Stephen Barncard and it features guest-appearances by Graham Nash, Jeff Pevar, James Raymond and Kenny Passarelli.

Read about his exciting 30 years around the CSNY family in this interview.

Check out full interview on what it's like to be just about the only CSNY fan in Italy for over 30 years and check out Francesco's "Find The Light".

Grazie Francesco!

Excellent music. This record is more than just a tribute to Neil Young, Jackson Browne etc. It's great to see that the music we love is still alive. I've always believed that it still offers plenty of territory to explore, for those who have the love, the talent and the humility it takes. This record is a great confirmation of my beliefs, along with Iron and Wine, Dylan Leblanc and a few other.

Francesco has recorded an excellent CD. Smartly produced and sonically appealing, it brings to mind all those great sounds of the Sixties and early Seventies from great groups like The Byrds and CSNY... but percolating together in Francesco's own special style. I was privileged to play Rickenbacker Electric 12 string on one track and am grateful for the opportunity to play even a small role in this excellent CD. Buy it, you will be glad you did!
