Continuing his coast-to-coast sound, Dom Colizzi’s Demons will inspire anyone who has been dealing with depression stemmed from bullying.
Dom Colizzi burst into the mainstream after being the subject of an independent short film directed by Zane Stephens (Vampire Diaries, The Internship), titled Somebody’s Hero.
The film follows Colizzi’s troubled high school experience in Maine, where his severe lisp and stutter caused him to be bullied throughout high school.
At the age of 19, doctors cut the cord under Colizzi’s tongue, with the hopes of curing his lisp and stutter. Shortly after receiving the surgery, he moved to LA and re-learned how to speak correctly, where he found his voice for making music.
Now, Colizzi is a singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Nashville, TN, ready to take on the world.
Demons is Colizzi’s latest single, a track that showcases Colizzi’s cloudless tenor voice, writing talents, and production skills. Anyone a fan of Ed Sheeran or Justin Bieber will appreciate the overall catchiness and incredible singing from Colizzi.
The infectiously painful Where Did All These Demons Come From hook is a common theme in Colizzi’s music. Highlighting a time when he was going through his absolute worse but showcasing that life does get better, no matter how bad it might get.
The instrumentation has an uplifting, yet poignant groove attached to it. Displaying the track is regarding pressing subject matter, but in a way that makes it optimistic toward the end.
Being under three minutes in length, it’s an all-around great and powerfully honest track that ends with Colizzi taking a subtle approach to his vocal delivery.
Other releases from Colizzi, such as Red Rum, takes a more upbeat party-style anthem, reminiscent of a Jason Mraz tune but with the production of Justin Timberlake.
While his previous release Slowly has a similar approach to Demons, dealing with serious subject matter with Colizzi’s immaculately soft yet commanding vocal delivery.
The track has a chorus that could be played on any radio station across the country and be a significant part of a great coming-of-age film.
Colizzi’s music is very much driven by the chorus, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, since most people look for a rock-solid chorus in their favorite music. If you’re a fan of honest and not overly complicated pop tracks, you’ll love Demons.
A few years before the release of Demons, Colizzi was a part of the Somebody’s Hero National Independent Anti-Bully Tour. On the tour, Colizzi shared his story of battling depression and his speech impediment to inspire and encourage others dealing with bullying.
Colizzi’s music was also featured in Somebody’s Hero, and he has since composed two additional movie soundtracks for The Man Walks Away and Void. He was also the featured lead in the Nashville Stormlight Pictures series Twelve.
The Nashville-based artist has a lot to be proud of, and it shows in his latest work. Currently signed as a Composer and Producer with The Score Keepers for Sync licensing, it’ll be fascinating to see just how far Colizzi’s career will go.
