Saint Petersburg, Florida Apr 5, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – Luciano Mendonca, a Brazilian-born American musician, has released his debut alternative rock/pop album, “Sign in the Stars,” offering listeners a diverse and engaging musical experience. The album, which was released on April 5, 2024, is available on all major music streaming platforms and will soon be available on vinyl. Composing, producing, and performing every track, Luciano showcases his versatile talent and deep lyrical themes that invite listeners to enjoy life’s simple pleasures in some tracks while pondering its complexities in others.

“Side of Things” delves into deep, thought-provoking lyrics, inspired by the storytelling prowess of Bob Dylan. In “Our Role,” Luciano explores dark themes while offering a glimmer of hope, drawing comparisons to the emotional depth found in Linkin Park’s music. Throughout the album, he emphasizes the importance of caring for the planet and future generations, as seen in the track “Dancing in the Sky,” which discusses the impact of technology on humanity. Two tracks on the album, “Vinoy Park” and “Pass-a-Grille,” pay tribute to Luciano’s personal experiences and serve as a homage to these iconic places in his hometown of Saint Petersburg, FL. “Vinoy Park” was the first song that Luciano wrote and composed for “Sign in the Stars.” After recording “Vinoy Park,” it almost didn’t make it onto the album due to an issue with the project files; he thought it was lost, but unexplainably, it was recovered.

“Sunny Day” provides a contrast with its upbeat, danceable vibe, inviting listeners to let loose and forget their every day worries. A journalist from New York praised the track “Sign in the Stars,” which also carries the name of the album, saying, “noting a waterfall of acoustic jangly guitars that create a vivid musical landscape reminiscent of an 80s high school movie soundtrack.”

Luciano’s track “Sign in the Stars” reflects his personal journey as a musician and human, highlighting the theme of perseverance in the face of adversity. While the album maintains its alternative rock style, it incorporates various influences, from pop to reggae, without compromising its coherence. For instance, “Fiesta” was originally conceived as a pop song but evolved naturally to include Latin influences, starting slowly and building anticipation before unveiling its lively rhythm in the chorus.

Originally intended as a showcase of Luciano’s talents as a songwriter, producer, bass player (his main instrument), and multi-instrumentalist, the album has evolved into a collaborative effort, with a friend providing lead vocals to bring Luciano’s lyrics and melodies to life. They both spent an entire month together recording the vocals – It was an intense process between practices and recordings to ensure every single one of Luciano’s melodies and concepts were correctly translated into the vocals. Luciano is also preparing to rehearse with his band, The Big Train (Luciano Mendonca & The Big Train), for a possible tour to bring “Sign in the Stars” to audiences across the U.S. and beyond.

Experience this musical blend of ‘Sign in the Stars’ on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube, and others.
