Fortunato Isgro was born 17 March 1983 on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. From a young age he was introduced to traditional Italian and 50’s English music, where family sing-a-longs were a common place. His natural gift for music was soon realised at the age of eight, when he began teaching himself to play keyboard by ear.
From these humble beginnings Fortunato started playing and singing professionally in many clubs and pubs on the Gold Coast at the age of sixteen. After being in the industry for a few years, Fortunato decided to broaden his musical capabilities by learning and singing traditional Italian songs. His launch into the Italian scene was well received by the Italian community in Australia and resulted in him establishing regular gigs at many clubs, restaurants and wineries across the country.
Over time, Fortunato has built a strong rapport and fan-base within Australia and is renowned for his powerful voice, extensive repertoire of both English and Italian songs and his ability to entertain large groups of people. He regularly performs at a number of Italian clubs and festivals throughout Australia, including the Australian Italian Festival Ingham, Hervey Bay Cultural Festival, Stanthorpe Three Saints Festival and the Santa Eufemia Festival Adelaide to name a few.
He has performed with many great artists including Kamal, Mark Vincent, Tony Pantano and Tony Di Marti.
Fortunato is currently promoting the upcoming release of his latest album, ‘Journey’ to be launched in April 2011. The album will feature a mix of modern, original Italian and English songs that are sure to impress.
