Introduce Yourselves: Desert Twelve

What is the name of your band?

Desert Twelve

What is the genre of music that you play?

Psychedelic Hard Rock

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

Desert Twelve is the new musical project of Orzorock Music label's founder Gaby Finotti, who is also an author, a guitar player and a producer. A completely new adventure, started during the pandemic, which explores rock music borders, shared with three talented young musicians: Gabriele Gnecchi on drums and percussion, Alex Viti on guitar and bass, and Vittoria Ipri on vocals.

This opens a new chapter for Finotti after a nationally and internationally acclaimed career with the historic trip-hop rock band Misfatto started in Piacenza, Italy in the 1990s. The other musicians come from different band experiences such as Kabirya, alt.rock trio where Gabriele Gnecchi is a founding member and The Wanted Ones, where Vittoria is the bass player.

What can people expect from your music?

An intense and mystical record with new elements from Psychedelic and blues combined to old school rock Misfatto era sounds.

Our style comes from different influences such a as Motorpsycho, Lenny Kravitz, Aphrodite's Child, Halestorm, Black Mountain, Red Fang, Misfatto, QOTSA, Soundgarden, Kyuss

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band?

The first single "Your Cold Cold Desert Heart'' with the related video clip is for sure the best release we can suggest people can listen to. It anticipated the record "Desert Twelve'' and will also anticipate the publication of Finotti's fourth book called "A Second Life."
