Award-Winning Lorenzo Gabanizza & Multi-Plat Artist Jeff Christie Team Up For New Single ‘I don’t want to live without you’

Award-winning Italian singer-songwriter Lorenzo Gabanizza is teaming up with multi-platinum artist Jeff Christie for the powerful and emotive single ‘I don’t want to live without you’. The single – which releases May 20th of this year – follows on from the pair’s previous collaborative single ‘I Guess I Am the Only One’ which currently has over 625,000 streams on Spotify alone.

I don’t want to live without you takes inspiration from the worlds of country and classic rock. A bleeding-heart ballad, the single’s acoustic guitar carries audiences through swells of moving vocals, and string and wind instruments. The two artists trade vulnerable and powerful vocal lines building to the song’s climactic classic rock end that turns its tender titular line into a pure anthem.

I don’t want to live without you’s accompanying video brings a wonderful visual component to the storytelling. Starring both Lorenzo and Jeff, the video follows Lorenzo and the memory of his dead partner, as he musters the strength to visit her grave. Poignant and reflective, the video gives a new dimension to the song as a bittersweet memorial to a love now passed.

Lorenzo’s on-screen partner is played acclaimed Italian actor Martina Sacchetti who has made a name for herself for her work on stage and across short films. The music video was directed by Oscar Serio, an official jury member for Sanremo Rock music festival and well-known filmmaker in his own regard.

I don’t want to live without you was written and composed by Lorenzo Gabanizza with performances from Jeff Christie, Kev Moore, Paul Fenton, Hale White, Patrick Lyon, Richard Curran, John Heinrich, Mike Casteel, Catherine Ashcroft, Tanner Bayles, and the Fortunate Gospel Choir.

The single was mixed by Stefano Bedini and Corey Moore, and mastered by Grammy-winners Grey Calbi (known for his work with Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and John Lennon) and Steve Fallone (Lady Gaga, Tony Bennet) at Sterling Sound, NJ, USA.

The single is the latest in an impressive body of work that audiences may recognise Lorenzo Gabanizza from. To date, the artist has over 1m streams on Spotify, started a fundraising program to fight AIDS that was recognised by the Mercury Phoenix Trust (founded after Freddie Mercury’s death), performed in front of 12,000 at Celtica, and produced a music video that was featured across The Toronto Alternative Film Festival, the Munich Music Video awards, and International Music Awards, and Malabar Film Festival, and he won the Red Carpet and The David Bowers awards for his work as an author.

Audiences can look forward to streaming I don’t want to live without you across all platforms on its release May 20th, 2023.
