Of Shadows And Lights project originally started as a band in 2018 from an Angelo Pitone's idea in which music, lyrics and pictures are the poetry that tell the story of good and evil, of who we really are and what we really have inside as human being. It's about the hidden undertones of our souls: of shadows and lights. A concept greater than ourselves with infinite reading keys. Each of you can draw its own conclusions, listen to the music or reading the lyrics. That's exactly how it should be.

 

After many misadventures, maybe too much, he decided to operate in solitude, surrounding himself of trusted people and musicians able to help and support him in his music path.
