Marcio Novelli is a Canadian singer/songwriter formerly known as Euphoria's Depression. Digging deep into the vast realm of the human psyche, Novelli draws from personal experience, approaching songwriting from a heart-on-sleeve declaration of a doomed existence but never void of hope. Novelli's emotionally charged and poignant voice is a refreshing lifesaver in a sea of musical dishonesty. 'The Overture' EP (2006) is Novelli's almost all acoustic debut solo effort. The self-produced EP, mastered by legendary mastering engineer Chris Athens (Johnny Cash, Bob Marley, Coldplay), was released in Canada on Novelli's own Veracious Records. It can be found on iTunes, where it has generated consistent sales for almost two years, and in hundreds of select stores around the world. Teaming up with award winning producer Julius Butty (Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero, City and Colour), Novelli has recently released the 'Break Me' EP (2009) which can be viewed as the flip side of the same coin that is Marcio Novelli with song arrangements stretching beyond the acoustic guitar and every instrument performed by Novelli, save drums. On social networking sites like Myspace.com, Novelli has managed to exceed well over one million song plays, 650,000 profile views and 30,000 friends via word of mouth and absolutely no industry support. Snagging the number one spot as Canada's top acoustic alternative rock artist and sustaining as one of Canada's top ten unsigned bands for well over two years, Novelli's ever-growing worldwide fan base has shown no signs of slowing down. Co-headlining concerts with Faber Drive, ill Scarlett, Marianas Trench, The Ataris, The Salads, countless indie label greats, and a cross-Canada tour with Hello Operator, Novelli has never faltered in the wake of being placed directly next to major label artists. Known for performing solo, Novelli has recently assembled a live band to accompany him on tour to support his expanded sound heard on the upcoming "Break Me" EP.
