Aurora D'Amico

Mar 14, 2024

8:00pm – 8:40pm CT


After going viral for translating Italian hit songs into English, Aurora got the attention of the whole country and national media. But her musical journey officially began in 2015 at the Bluebird Café (Nashville TN), whene she first performed in front of the American audience and established her strong bond with the US.

With a scholarship at Berklee College, Aurora focused on her original music and soon became a relevant artist, well-known for her intimate songwriting and powerful performance on the acoustic guitar.

Two music productions and numerous live shows later, in 2020 Aurora's biggest dream was about to come true - she was going to tour the US for the first time! Little did she know the day she landed in Boston, Italy was locked down and her whole tour was cancelled. As she was forced to fly back home, her music landed in Indonesia as a soundtrack of a movie - a massive success at the box office and on Netflix.

Today Aurora is well aware of her roots planted in the Folk heritage. But she is also able to reach for Pop skies with songs like Feelings and her latest single A Cool Car And A Good Smile (included in the Fresh Finds Pop playlist by Spotify US).
