Songwriting - listening to the wind of my soul

 

‘To me music means above all emotion. I listen to the wind of my soul and try to turn all those wonderful feelings we can't touch into music.’ 

 

Margherita Pirri

 

Songwriter, singer and original soundtrack composer born in Milan - Italy, Margherita starts writing her first original songs at the age of 15 with lyrics in English, French, Italian and German. Fascinated by music and its shapes since she was a little girl she begins playing classical piano at the age of 8 and then later acoustic guitar. 

Bewitched by classical music, especially by composer W. A. Mozart, Margherita studies lyrical singing, then performing as a solo Soprano in several concerts organized by her school, the German School of Milan. However her first love is composing and performing her own songs. ‘When I write a song I already have the lyrics in mind and I can hear the arrangement fully formed, one of the best parts of composing music is to create something unique that touches people’s heart.’

 

Her song Say to me from the album "looking for truth"(2015) was chosen by Giorgio Armani for the score of his Haute Couture Fashion Show (Fall/Winter 2015/2016) in Paris the 7th July 2015.

This is what French journalist Godfrey Deeny of "Le Figaro" writes after the show; 

“porté par une excellente bande-son autour de SAY TO ME de la charmante Margherita Pirri, c'est un de ces moments d'abstraction et d'insouciance, dont Armani a décidément le secret." 

 

"an excellent score, in beetween the song Say To Me performed by charming songwriter Margherita Pirri, this is one of the moments of abstraction and lightheartedness in which Armani has caught his secret."(Le Figaro, 9 July 2015)

 

Her songs receive recognition through several radios like Radio 1 Rai programme DEMO ( for talented unsigned songwriters ) and Margherita wins the DEMO AWARD - Radio 1 Rai in 2012, the second prize at Biella Festival, she also performs her songs in Italian Music Festivals for unsigned artists such as Premio Bianca D’Aponte (Naples) and Musicultura (Macerata). 

 

In the meantime she performs her songs in live clubs such as la Casa 139 (Milano), Eataly (Milano), Piazza Duomo di Brescia (festa della musica), Galleria del Corso di Milano (LiveMi), Festival della musica celtica di Beltane, Interstate Studio 130 (Udine), N’importe quoi (Roma), Pelledoca (Milano), la casa di Alda Merini (Milano).
