Ira Losco has come a long way since her Spellbound and 7th Wonder days.
It’s been 15 years since she first stepped in the music scene and my what 15 years they have been. Ira is one of those few artists who has taken the eurovision as a stepping stone and not the peak of her career.
Throughout these 15 years she has won numerous awards, performed in over 17 countries, played alongside renowned international acts such as Elton John, Katie Melua, Maroon 5, Akon, Mel C, Ronan Keating, Bob Geldof, Tokio Hotel, Gigi D`Alessio, Claudio Baglioni, Max Gazze, Sohne Mannheims, Silbermond, Duran Duran, Enrique Iglesias and many more. Her songs have also been covered by a number of artists. Kelly Clarkson’s international Hit –‘Don’t waste my time ‘- was created around Ira Losco’s past release – ‘Uh Oh’ through a publishing agreement. Her latest single ‘One In A Million’ reached 100k views in just 24 hours and has been received as one of her best tracks
She has more than proved herself over and over again what a talented artist she is. Ira is a role model to many upcoming singers out there and most especially to girls and young women because of how far she has come and is a great example of where ambition,drive and talent can take you. She shows that it takes hard work and sacrifices to get to where you want to however if you have a passion for what you do and if you never give up, you will achieve your dreams. One of the things that I mostly admire about this woman is how humble and grounded she has remained throughout it all.
‘No Sinner No Saint’ is the new double album which is set to be released later this month and I have no doubt that she has created quite a treat for us listeners. I can already pin point some favourites just from listening to the previews (iTunes Preview and Pre-Order Link ) so I’m looking forward to listening to the full versions now . The new website will also be launched with the new album release so stay tuned – www.iralosco.com
In the meantime until the album release, Ira Losco and her team will be dropping the official music video for ‘Colors’ which is a collaboration featuring the international superstar Jason Derulo ( he’s coming to this years Isle of MTV- who knows we might get a special live performance at the Granaries)
