"New Day" is the first solo album of Mario Percudani.

After the work with Hungryheart and the blues band project Blueville, Mario Percudani shows his intimate world with these ten songs, proving his great personality and his artistic maturity.

By listening to "New Day" we can absorb a music which is a bridge between the best American traditional Songwriters with a Blues influence, crossed with the West Coast feeling and the European melodies, transformed through sweet and catchy timeless songs.

Mario Percudani was born in a small town near Lodi, Italy.

He began to play the guitar at the age of seven and by the time he was ten he had already performed before large audiences at local events and tourist resorts.

Soon, his passion for American music inspired him to form his first band, Keys of Desire allowing him to unleash his innate talent for song writing for the very first time.

In 1997 Mario founded another band, the Hungryheart , whose numerous performances on the club scene of Northern Italy earned them huge popularity and a gig as the supporting act on tours with some international bands.

Motivated by the very positive response they receive from the public, the band decides to record their first album at the Elfo Studios in Piacenza.

Although originally meant for a worldwide distribution by a famous italian Label, the album doesn't materialize until much later and it is eventually released by Tanzan Music in 2008.
