J.C. Cinel was born as an artist more than 15 years ago, as a singer/guitarist and song-writer taking up different kinds of music ranging from rock, rock-blues to country-rock. They have never been re-proposed in a canonical way, but mixed: the result is a particular blend with melody on top of it and a special care for both vocal and instrumental arrangements. He's currently the founder and leader of several bands yet working and playing with a constant activity. His first solo album ”Halfway there” is completely unplugged and shows the lesson learned during his first musical formation which is marked by a deep and constant study of the acoustic and classic guitar and from listening to what's going to have a great influence on his song- writing: Eagles, America, C.S.N., Beatles, James Taylor…But there’s always been a strong rock side in JC’s approach to music balancing his melodic and soft one. His love for 70’s rock was born with Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, Free, The Who, but also Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Doobie Brothers, Steve Miller band…. This background helped to develop a style enabling him to create a strong, warm and catchy sound perfectly suiting the lyrics contents and rhythms. Harmony vocals play an outstanding part in his way of feeling music, a trademark of all his musical experiences: they are in fact used as a real instrument coloring and expanding the melody bounds. ”Before my eyes”, is the new JC’s record where great songs are perfectly arranged to include all of his influences and to show the achievement of an original and personal style. The craunchy guitars , the crystal acoustics and the fusion of several voices,meet in a game which calls and answers emphasizes the evoking and introspective feeling of his lyrics. Melody is always on top of his songs through particular arrangements without sounding redundant. This comes from his love for completely different kinds of music: Jazz, Bossanova, Blues, World music… This versatility has always followed his musical activity throughout his several live experiences. In 1985 he's singer and lead guitarist of a band called "The Air" performing their own song ranging from rock to fusion, Styx and Yes -like. In 1992 he's in a band called "Lost and Found", a five piece band mixing west-coast guitars and vocals to latin rhythms and percussions. Since 1996 he's leader of the bands: "Poison Whiskey" (Southern Rock, '70 Rock) and "Head and Heart" (Country Rock, West Coast). The first one is a very well-known band with constant activity in the live music circuit. In 2000 he is the side act of Mac Auly (singer of Michael Shenker group) during an Italian summer festival. In 2001 some of JC's songs are collected in his first unplugged solo self produced CD called "Halfway there". This mini-CD contains four songs composed and arranged entirely by J.C. In 2001he is the winner of national contest "Emergenze chitarre", organized by the prestigious Italian guitar magazine. In 2002 the "J.C band" travels all around the country to propose his own songs.

Why this name?
It's my name....i 've only added J.C. which has been my nickname for so many years to my last name
Do you play live?
I've git a constant live activity in Italy...but i love being on the road and i've been touring Crete,Holland,Spain,France,Germany,Switzerland,Austria,and US too.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It changed the way to approach music....i ain't saying better or worse...sure different....and you have to take it into account when promoting your music...things change and you have to go with it...
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would....but i know the "underground" circuit has always been more vital because it relies mostly on muisc and not business
