In May 2009, three fresh-faced tennagers -- Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble -- appeared on the popular Italian talent show Ti Lascio Una Canzone and dazzled television viewers with their flawless renditon of the Neapolitan standard "O Sole Mio." The boys, who range in age from 15 to 17, won the competition easily and decided their group needed a name. Il Volo, meaning "flight," was chosen to signify the feeling that these three young tenors were about to spread their wings and fly.

It wasn't long before Il Volo landed a recording contract, and their self-titled debut album includes their versions of "O Sole Mio," "Il Mondo, E Piu Ti Penso" (a medley of Ennio Morricone film music from Once Upon A Time in America and Malena), "El Reloj" (a brand-new song sung in Spanish), "Smile" (written by Charlie Chaplin for his film Modern Times and popularized by Nat King Cole), "Notte Stellata/The Swan" (based on the famuos theme of Camille Saint-Saens), "La Luna Hizo Esto" (written for Il Volo by Diane Warren), "Per Te" (by Grammy winner Walter Afanasief), and "Un Amore Cosi Grande" (an Italian classic from the '70s).

The release of Il Volo is just the beginning of what is sure to be an exciting adventure for Gianluca (who hails from Abruzzo), Ignazio (born in Bologna), and Piero (who is from Agrigento, Sicily). They may be young, but Il Volo's mission is clear: "We want to bring lyrical pop music to people all over the world, including kids our own age," they say. "Introducing this important style of music to people who like all different types of music would be a dream come true." From the Label
