Stephan Moccio Shares New Single ‘Nuit Blanche’ + Album Announce

With the bombardment of 24-hour rolling news and ever-present social media, we live in a world that moves fast, perhaps too fast. What we could all do with is music that is good for the heart and soul, restoring our inner calm no matter what our language. This, the multiple Grammy and Academy Award-nominated composer, hit songwriter and producer Stephan Moccio knows well. After writing chart-topping hits for the likes of Céline Dion, Avril Lavigne, Seal and Josh Groban, today Stephan shares his new single ‘Nuit Blanche’, out on Decca Records. This is the fourth single to be taken from his upcoming album, to be released later this year.

Delicate yet deeply moving, ‘Nuit Blanche’ is a melodic, tender piano meditation with jazz and impressionistic elements. Speaking of the track, Stephan says,

“It means sleepless night. We have all experienced moments where our minds are still full of thoughts, floating in our head before we sleep and dream. We lay in bed staring at the ceiling, into the darkness. All is still, calm as we reflect on memories and on tomorrow…close our eyes and eventually drift away.”

On this new music, Stephan returns to his roots in classical composition and back to the instrument he knows best, the piano. But if truth be known, the piano has never been too far away. In fact, they are inseparable. Throughout his career, you can hear his performances on countless recordings by the world’s biggest artists. He has written and composed songs for global stars: ‘Wrecking Ball’ for Miley Cyrus, ‘A New Day Has Come’ for Celine Dion and ‘Earned It’ for The Weeknd  a track featured on the film Fifty Shades of Grey for which he received an Oscar nomination.

His classical upbringing and discipline combined with his pop-songwriting sensitivities gives him a unique edge in the piano music genre. It is why he has been recognised for his impeccable mastery of hand-crafted melody, arrangement, harmonic depth and a provocative pianistic touch.

Stephan creates music that moves you, music that is built on decades of experience and dedication to his craft and continues to win over audiences globally. It is his ability to convey emotion without words that is so special: creating melodies that course through his emotive and delicately wrought compositions. This new solo piano music is romantic, organic, raw and honest, revealing a more sensual and vulnerable side of this multi-faceted artist.

“I needed to recalibrate on many levels – musically, personally and mentally,” says Stephan. “Solitude and quiet, in a noisy world, are elements I have been craving for a long time. Naturally, it made sense to engage in an intimate conversation between myself and the instrument which has been faithful to me my entire life.  Strip it all down… one person, in one room, with one instrument.”
