M.E.R.L.O.T, born in 1998, he grew up in Grassano in Basilicata and in 2017 he moved to Bologna to continue his studies and began to take his first steps in his music career, moving from acoustic to electronic sounds with the help of his first producer Eyem.

His debut single “Ventitrè” quickly reached almost six million streams, consecrating M.E.R.L.O.T as a Spotify revelation artist at the end of 2019 (the single has now over sixteen million streams). Thus he convinces himself to definitively follow his talent.

In 2020 he debuted on Virgin Records with the song “Sparami nel Petto”, which reached over 3 and a half million streams on Spotify. In 2020 he was selected by the Artistic Commission of New Proposals led by Amadeus for the final of Sanremo Giovani with the song “Sette Volte”.

In the spring he released “Denti”, a song which, as typical of Manuel, was born in the camera, guitar and voice. The single carried by melancholy unfolds on the theme of memory. The song is produced by Alex D’Errico, who creates an essential but immediate production capable of perfectly reflecting the musical universe of M.E.R.L.O.T.

In summer 2021 M.E.R.L.O.T presents his live songs in a ten-date tour across Italy and receives positive feedback from the public and critics.

In October 2021 it is time for the song “Alieni” whose video is based on a simple metaphor where the torch (which is a boy) and the key (a girl) are looking for a world where there are no problems and where everything is simple, even their relationship.

In January 2022 he premiered the song “Ma dai” on TikTok, a romantic guitar and voice ballad which obtained over two hundred thousand streams in a month on Spotify.

At the beginning of April M.E.R.L.O.T collaborates with svegliaginevra for the song “(tuttoqua)”.

At the end of April it’s time for “Tacco 9”, a song in which M.E.R.L.O.T explores the feelings of his generation by telling the typical infatuation of twenty-year-olds in music and words.

“Gocce” is his first album, available from September 2022.

After the publication of his latest album “Gocce” and a success of 30 million streams, he remains faithful to the melancholy touch that characterizes him, full of reflections and delicate nostalgia, releasing a new single, AROMA, on 16 June 2023, which brings live in summer on the stages of Italian festivals.

Closing the summer MADAME, feat. piazzabologna, which brings with it the nostalgia of the end of a love and of the beautiful season. Among the artist’s latest releases, Forse Forse, released on November 17, 2023 and Piccole Cose, on March 29, 2024.
