Biography

Alfredo Malabello is Australia’s very own Italian son of song, and he’s harboured a burning passion for music as far back as he can remember. “As a very young boy growing up in Adelaide, I couldn’t fall asleep unless I had the radio on. Music was my one true escape, and even now, if everything is crumbling around me, as soon as I start to play my piano and sing, the world as it is stops and my own private universe begins.”

Born to immigrant Italian parents, Sydney-based Alfredo is a true citizen of the world, and his colourful career has transported him to many places across the globe. “I’ve played in cities as varied as New York, Nashville, Tokyo, Milan, Dusseldorf, Saint Moritz, Munich, Rome, London, and all over Australia of course. What a trip it’s been!”

With over 30 years experience on stages around the world, Alfredo has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s most remarkable live artists. He has performed at VIP parties for Canadian crooner Michael Bublé, he’s entertained guests at a lavish ceremony to celebrate the opening of the 2011 Formula One in Melbourne, and he’s also shared a stage with Tina Arena and the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra. “Tina used to come and sing with me in a small bar in Melbourne in the late 1980s, and it was a special moment when she recently chose me to sing The Prayer with her, backed by grand sixty piece orchestra. It was a glorious highlight of my career.”

Along with his credentials on stage, Alfredo has also cemented his status as an exceptional recording artist. His 2010 debut album Ciao Bella peaked at Number 4 on the Jazz and Blues chart in Australia, spending an astounding twenty-seven weeks in the Top Twenty. “I was pleasantly surprised with the success of Ciao Bella, and I’m thrilled I’m able to connect with so many people.”

Alfredo is a man of many surprising talents, and although he has recently acted in the acclaimed SBS series Carla Cametti PD, as well as in Channel Nine’s successful Underbelly Files, his next journey sees him returning to his passion for music as he consolidates the success of Ciao Bella with his new release The Two Of Us.

Recorded in Byron Bay with acclaimed producer Paul Wiltshire (Human Nature, Backstreet Boys, Marcia Hines), The Two Of Us is a warm, tender album that features some of Australia’s finest musicians, including a twenty-piece orchestra. On The Two Of Us, Alfredo lends his passionate, soulful vocals to a smoky version of
All Is Fair In Love, a sexy interpretation of Music To Watch Girls By, and he has also re-written the Chicago classic Just You And Me in Italian.

Containing eight English compositions and four Italian songs, The Two Of Us is the perfect album for relaxing and romancing. And as Alfredo promises, “When it’s just me and my piano, you get to the real heart of who I am.”

    Pros:

    I just wanted to say thank you very much for Alfredo on the weekend. Alfredo and the band went off and suited the afternoon to a tee. Alfredo's professional approach to a few things that were not arranged to my normal attention to detail was most appreciated and I would work with Alfredo and suggest Alfredo to any show or event in the future without hesitation. I hope Alfredo enjoyed the day as we had over 80000 people attend the event and was extremely successful.

    Cons:

    None

    Overall:

    Thank you once again.

    Regards,

    Brad Gander

    Pros:

    The evening with Alfredo was absolutely fantastic.

    Alfredo arrived at about 9.00pm to do some setting up and then joined us at the dinner table and had some friendly banter with Irene and our guests. He was very friendly and I think we made him comfortable.

    At 10.00 Alfredo played and sang at our piano with his backing tracks. His fantastic voice and true professionalism instantly created a wow factor. After about 3 songs I had to get up and see out our caterers. When I returned, my lounge room of 15 people were all up dancing. The smiling and excitement did not wane for the next hour and a half or more that Alfredo played.

    Alfredo’s song selection was perfect for his audience, he was entertaining and he was hitting some fantastic notes with songs like ‘The Prayer’. He was also very accommodating in encouraging my 16 year old son to play guitar along with him for a couple of songs.

    This was something for my wife’s 50th Birthday. She could not have been more excited and pleased with the evening. Alfredo created a memory to treasure for us and our guests.

    If I sound like I am raving on a bit. That is what Irene and I and our guests are still doing.

    Cons:

    NONE

    Overall:

    A special thanks to Alfredo for a wonderful evening. I only hope that more people can get to share a similar experience that we did.

    Regards,

    Pros:

    I want to thank you, and especially Alfredo, for the gig Saturday night. Our work 30th Anniversary function was the best ever and much of that success is due to Alfredo. His performance and song choice was perfect for our style of function and his “easygoing” manner made it easier for me on the night. He worked with our speech schedule easily. I had compliments from everyone throughout the night and this week, regarding how enjoyable the night was. I have been organizing functions for nearly 10 years for this company, and this is the first time I managed to get people up and dancing.

    Please thank Alfredo for us, I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking for a singer/musician for a function.

    Thank you
