Mario Biondi’s unmistakable deep voice is warm and sensual, yet clear and confident.

Born in Catania, Sicily, Mario was a lover of soul music from a young age. His breakthrough single ‘This Is What You Are’ (2006) was picked up by influential DJs such as Norman Jay and Craig Charles. It became a huge hit in northern soul clubs and could be heard on discerning dancefloors worldwide.

In 2006, Schema Records released Mario’s debut album, ‘Handful of Soul’, a wonderful fusion of soul and jazz. The album went platinum in Italy and received widespread critical acclaim.

Mario has worked with such illustrious figures as Incognito (with whom he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2013), Earth Wind and Fire and Chaka Khan, and his albums ‘Sun’ (2013), ‘Best of Soul’ (2016) and ‘Brasil’ (2016) have consolidated his reputation as Italy’s foremost soul and jazz sensation.
