Michael Mott - "Cara Mia/ Innamorata" (Music Video)
Michael Mott - Cara Mia/ Innamorata I have always been a romantic at heart. Ever since I could remember, I have been drawn to emotional love ballads centered around love, loss and yearning. Big, lush vocals and stirring passionate music have consistently been the balm for this romantic sap. Growing up, I was enthralled with the studio versions of "Cara Mia" written by Tulio Trapani and Lee Lange, made famous by Jay and the Americans as well as "Innamorata," written by Harry Warren and Jack Brooks, made famous by the incomparable Dean Martin. In 2019, I sat down at the piano and began to play through both of these iconic songs and quickly realized how easily they could be put together. After I created my mash-up, I reached out to musical director, Andy Collopy, to orchestrate for an upcoming live concert later that year. We debuted the piece and the audience response was overwhelming. It has since become a staple in all of my live shows! Over the pandemic, my glorious band recorded their parts from home and my wonderful producer, Rich Matthew, put everything together, adding some additional orchestral elements and the rest is history. Thank you for continuing to support me on my musical journey. I hope "Cara Mia/ Innamorata" is the balm for every romantic either in-love or searching for it. 🌹 Available NOW on all platforms, worldwide: https://linktr.ee/michael_mott Don't forget to subscribe and hit that bell icon to be the first to see new uploads! iTunes: https://apple.co/3H5AQcC Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3rQCr0Z Apple Music: https://apple.co/3sxdxCD Amazon Music: https://amzn.to/3LjIkv4 See more from Michael Mott here: Twitter | https://twitter.com/michael_mott Facebook | http://facebook.com/michaelmott85 Instagram | https://www.instagram.com/michael_mott TikTok | https://www.tiktok.com/@michael_mott "Cara Mia" written by: Tulio Trapani & Lee Lange "Innamorata" written by: Jack Brooks & Harry Warren Arranged by: Michael Mott Produced by: Rich Matthew Co-Produced by: Michael Mott Lead Vocals/ Piano: Michael Mott Electric Bass: David White Acoustic Guitar: Andrew Zinsmeister Drums & Percussion: Adam Wolfe Violin: Ally Jenkins Cello: Laura Bontrager Orchestration: Andy Collopy Keyboard Programming: Rich Matthew Vocals Recorded by Jim Morgan Mixed by Rich Matthew Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic Music Video Creative Director: Nathaniel Hunt Music Video Filmed & Edited by Benjamin Bogard Music Video Photography: Michael Young Coordination & Scheduling by Brooke Papineau Executive Producer: Michael Mott Special Thank You: Michael Young & Lindsay Rider #michaelmott #caramia #innamorata #caramiainnamorata ________________________________ "Cara Mia/ Innamorata” Lyrics Cara Mia, why must we say goodbye?
