“I know I didn’t do anything new, that’s why I gave the album that particular title.
But I also know that I did something authentic and true and that’s enough for me.
I hope people can “feel” my lyrics and my melodies.
By the way, never underestimate the power of a song”.

9 Useless Tunes is Tommaso Mantelli’s new album and his search for sincerity.
Nine tracks, for voice and guitar only, show how the artist wants to concentrate on an unsophisticated
music structure.
Nine tracks looking for self-knowledge and where to stay in the universe; relations with people all
around, apocalyptic scenarios, thoughts about death, vices and virtues, expectations for a
child on the way.
Nine tracks coming from hundreds of lyrics and twenty years of writing.
Nine tracks of acoustic rock celebrating American tradition (Jeff Buckley, Duncan Sheik, Chris Withley,
Chris Cornell), some ballads, the whole album sung in English, Tommaso’s favourite language ever since.
