Introduction: Known as a Modern Day Crooner, Gian Faraone is a critically-acclaimed vocalist and recording artist based in NYC who considers himself an old-fashioned entertainer. A Berklee College of Music graduate with a multi-cultural upbringing and fluency in three languages (English, Italian and Spanish), has given Faraone a continental appeal. Incorporating the signature sounds of the great voices from the big band era combined with the romantic style from his Latin-Italian roots, this talented and charismatic crooner delivers a modern throwback on classic standards in a performance you will not forget.
