About us

Frozen Farmer is
Francesco Scalise (vocals, banjo)
Giordano Rizzato (drums)
Valter Violini (bass, vocals)
Mattia Rizzato (wurlitzer piano, organ, synth, vocals)

Frozen farmer was founded in 2009 in Varese, Italy. The band spent some months writing and playing new songs and then, in November 2011, the first EP was released by a significant Italian indie-label called Ghost Records.
Mainly, the lyrics of this work tell stories on personal life experienced by Francesco (banjo and vocals of the band) during his journeys in U.S.A. The music is pure American tradition: five songs ranging from folk rock to bluegrass and alternative country.
Frozen Farmer "EP" got very good reviews on Italian Magazines (--Blow Up Magazine: it’s beatiful to see Midwest coming back, very good riffs --Rumore Magazine: tied to the roots of American tradition, country style together with Sixteen Horsepower sadness --Buscadero Magazine: a beautiful EP, lay in my grave sounds like Johnny Cash, highways is like Sixteen Horsepower, Snow is in a Byrds’ style, a very good beginning) and also on Webzines (--Shiver: an indie folk sensitivity like Mumford and Sons, a great personality --Sound Magazine: sweet and warm atmosphere, wonderful melodies, a great beginning --Dance Like Shaquille O’neal: dense arrangements, a lovely work --Geeks: a folk rock sound, an ep to listen again and again).
After some gigs, the band started to work on new songs. At the end of 2012 Frozen farmer went back to La Sauna Recording Studio in Varese and recorded an album entitled “Stay”, published by Seahorse Recordings in 2014.
The album confirms Frozen Farmer’s passion for folk music, but, at the same time, it reveals more vigorously the different musical influences that each member of the band has brought into the project. The album was featured by Tim Sparks, a celebrated American acoustic guitarist, arranger and composer (Tzadik Records – in association with John Zorn).

I Frozen Farmer sono nati a Varese nel 2009. Dopo un primo periodo dedicato alla scrittura e all'arrangiamento delle proprie canzoni, nel Novembre del 2011 il gruppo entra alla Sauna Recording Studio per incidere cinque brani inediti, pubblicati da Ghost Records a fine 2011. I testi raccontano storie di vita vissute da Francesco (voce e banjo del gruppo) durante un suo lungo soggiorno negli States. Le sonorità in cui le canzoni si immergono sono quelle della pura tradizione folk americana. Il debutto ottiene recensioni entusiasmanti ed un'ottima risposta del pubblico, così, dopo un periodo fitto di concerti, la band si rimette al lavoro su nuove canzoni.
Sul finire del 2012 i Farmers sono pronti a tornare in studio per cominciare la registrazione del nuovo album "Stay" (2014, Seahorse Recordings/Audioglobe distribuzione). Il disco conferma la forte passione del gruppo per il folk, ma allo stesso tempo rivela la molteplicità di influenze musicali che ognuno dei componenti riversa nell'arrangiamento finale dei brani, tracciando una linea ancora più decisa nel sound dei Frozen Farmer. Questo album vede inoltre la preziosa collaborazione di Tim Sparks (chitarrista statunitense che ha inciso diversi dischi per la Tzadik e ha cooperato, tra gli altri, con John Zorn, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot e Greg Cohen) che, appassionatosi al progetto, ha partecipato alle registrazioni.
