about

Neil was born as a singer-songwriter, he began writing songs in English at 14 years old and from that moment he no longer stops composing. First with Hope Leaves with which recorded a demo in 2006, then as soloist with the debut album "Apart" in 2011 up to today with the production of "Black Flowers." Neil is characterized by being a large European scope songwriter leaving transpire from his folk pop music infused with acoustic guitars and dreamy lyrics. His latest album composed of 11 songs is an intimate journey through the experiences and stories of Neil, who through his continuous vision gives us a great scenery and breathtaking views of the different facets of their lives. The album was produced in Sicily by Paolo Messere (Blessed Child Opera) and will come out to Seahorse May 26th 2017. The Single from radio rotation will be the second track on the album "Blank Sheet".


“Black Flowers" is a good pure rock work but also quite varied, which makes the final result very pleasant and suitable for many, that will bring definitely many listen to the lovers of the genre.

Neil is a musician who knows where he is going and wants to take us with him, taking us by the hand in a land where everything is not slight but at least we can share it with someone else who will help us carry our burdens.

…In conclusion I would say that Paolo Messere (Blessed Child Opera) has been found to produce a truly original masterpiece. Black Flowers definitely deserves to be heard and appreciated for all its nuance and every defect, assuming you will find someone!

If Neil, in Black Flowers, wanted to represent the artist's unease - and man’s- towards a certain conformism of bourgeois memory, He certainly succeeded in a mature way and well held by the content (melodic and lyrical).
The Baudelairean emphasis and the folk music are good tools to get clear and without rhetoric listener, preferring to emphasize the desolation and human suffering, rather than enhance it as a vice to be cursed poets
who surf autumn drunken boats.

Track Name: Spleen
SPLEEN

I'm the sea that sinks the ships,
the weird tale
I'm the wind that will uproot the trees 
and I'll
become a scarecrow in a barren land
don't care if I'll be damned

I am no one,
I am no one
I am no one
and my tears go break against the tide

I'm the sea that sinks the ships,
the weird tale
I'm the fire that grows continuously
and I'll
become a scarecrow in a barren land
don't care if I'll be damned

I am no one,
I am no one
I am no one
and my tears go break against the tide
Track Name: Blank Sheet
Blank sheet

Too many thoughts run through my head
But no one comes clear to my pen
I look outside the dirty window
lighting another cigarette
But the sun is too shy to show its shadows
at 5 am
Waiting for hours words that never come

In a blank sheet
Is there something wrong with me?
A lone shapeless thief
In a blank sheet
Is there something wrong with me?
I'm stuck here to bleed

You're sleeping tight, my angel white
You're sleeping tight, you're hungry about life
And I'm giving back my poor soul
to the devil that once I met
Because everything seems already been told
and done, in fact

The world is just like me
So cynical and frail.
Track Name: My Tired Heart
My tired heart

my tired heart is almost blue and fading. 
my tired heart is right where you begin. 

I said hey,
can you put your hand in the pocket of my coat? 
I said hey,
can I lead you with my heart, my tired heart,
anywhere you will? 

My tired heart is almost blue and empty. 
my tired heart is right where you'll take care

I said hey,
can I put my hand in the pocket of your coat? 
I said hey, can you lead me anywhere you want?
I said hey,
can you put your hand in the pocket of my coat? 
I said hey, can I lead you with my heart, my tired heart
Track Name: Chains
CHAINS

today i'm going to blow away
the things, the things i don't belong again
you are my rose,you are my thorn
you are my thorn, my fucking gun

and in the end it's me who walks
who walks away and brings you trouble
me, just me in the colder place
who plays this wicked game and wants to fade away

chains that wrap around my feet
while I would just farm some sun rays
stray dogs lick my blames
like snow in spring we chase something

but in the end it's me who walks
who walks away and brings you trouble
me, just me in the colder place
who tries to understand and wants to fade away

you are my gun you are my rose
you are my foe you are my home
it's me in the colder place
who pulls you under
just me who walks away
and tries to understand
Track Name: Promise
Promise

You are 
so fucking beautiful 
and so fucking mine. 
with my face down to the ground 
I will swear, I promise that  
if you'll marry me
I will take, I will take care of you

You are 
so fucking wonderful
you make me laugh 
and you make me cry. 
I know I'm not good with words 
but I will swear, I promise 
that
if you marry me
I will take, I will take care of you 

I cannot stay a single day 
without you by my side
when you're not there
I scream your name
without you by my side
I feel so lost
I cannot stay a single day 
without you by my side
when you're not there
I scream your name
without you by my side
I’m lost and out of time
Track Name: Clown
Clown

White greasepaint, half on your cheeks, half in your tears.
hide the real you behind a mask of crooked teeth.
wear your red nose, your time is about to come
the scars on your soul will not come out.

Here comes the clown
big round of applause
please welcome to the clown
a lifetime spent in a laugh

Green curly wig and a letter you wrote in the dressing room:
“Why should I have to keep on playing the fool for you?"
all the gullible are sat down awaiting to have some fun
the hand slips into the pocket and grabs the gun.

Here comes the clown..
Track Name: The Meaning Fades
The meaning fades

soldiers and priests are coming
all dressed up,mouths of honey
to rock you in their graves
to rock you in their graves

hold your first black flowers
we're animals for slaughter
your throne becomes your cage
your throne becomes your cage

with your back to the wall
look how the pigs are running
aimlessly outside the fence
your nails scratch the walls
look how the pigs are running
try to find a meaning before the meaning fades

tears freeze in the morning
a lesson you are learning
before you leave that way
before you leave that way

we're animals for slaughter
dry throats claim for water
you've lost the words to say
you've lost the words to say
Track Name: Not a Love Song
Not a love song

and now that I ain't got nothing left to lose
now that I've got nothing left to choose
I still can't move

the sunshine now that I have lost it all
new emotions are just reflections
this is not a love song

how can I watch the world with tears in my eyes
how can I watch this fucking world if I still can't move

the sunshine now that I have lost it all
new emotions are just reflections
this is not your love song
Track Name: Moth
Moth

A moth 
On my car window
As
I am driving back
A moth
Whispers in my ears
Death
I am driving back
Home to you
Will you be kind with me?
Will you love me like I do?
Track Name: Awaiting
Awaiting…

i'm here
like the soldier for a call
like a spider on the wall
i'm here
staring at the gun
staring at the sun
As if i were the only one
awaiting. 

I feel older than the time
I'll never leave a trace
Maybe I should lie and say
That everything's ok
You fire a warning shot in the air
Oh,believe me when I say
you're mine, no one will ever take your place

i'm here
like The finger on the trigger
and this bed is getting bigger
bigger without you. 
I'm still here
like the calm before the storm
like the hand that holds the stone
awaiting.

I feel older than the time
I'll never leave a trace
Maybe I should lie and say
That everything's ok
You fire a warning shot in the air
Oh,believe me when I say
you're mine, no one will ever take your place
Track Name: Spleen II
SPLEEN II

i am the king of a black reign
where everything that dies
comes back to life and dies again
my little empire
trees are ahead, the sun is in balance on a rope
all the things you know
here could be right and could be wrong
my little empire, my little hollow empire

i laugh in the mirror for what i see
that man isn't me
my nose and my promises bleed
that man is not me

i am a slave of this black reign
my reality's made of broken dreams and bitter tales
my kingdom’s tired
i try to call your name in this room
but there is nothing new, all secrets hide away from truth
my kingdom is tired
my little hollow empire

i laugh in the mirror for what i see
that man isn't me
my eyes and my promises bleed
that man is not me

i laugh in the mirror for what i see
that man isn't me
my fingers and my promises bleed
that man is not me

i am the king of a black reign
where everything that dies
comes back to life and dies again
and nothing's changed
