Steve comments on Facebook: "The weight of the Russian nation - my most Slavic music, inspired by all those wonderful Russian classical composers and which tells the story of that emerging nation with its struggles for power. Natalia is a Russian Everywoman, constantly hampered by a series of oppressive regimes ".

Watch "Wingbeats", the first video from the album:

Here is Steve's account of the song's genesis:

"The lockdown cobwebs are swept away in one fell swoop! - says Steve on his Facebook page -  With the monstrous rhythm section of Jonas, Craig, Nick D'Virgillio and Phil Ehart along with the soaring sax and bass clarinet by Rob, Nad, Amanda Lehmann, Lorelei & Durga McBroom and myself on vocals, Sodirkhon Ubaidulloev's dutar , Malik Mansurov's tar, Christine Townsend's violin and viola, Roger's darkly powerful organ and my guitar, we immerse ourselves fully in that wild release of energy.

It's a no holds barred album that rides that wave, unleashing those demons, dreams and nightmares, all crashing together on the shore. I enjoyed the power of this album allowing my guitar to scream with joy and anger ... and once again fly across those oceans to distant lands.

It's great to creatively connect with musicians from faraway places, especially when we haven't been able to meet. We all have a voice in our cacophony of sound and we shout together in Surrender of Silence! "

"Surrender of Silence" is also available for pre-order on HackettSongs in an exclusive limited edition Nebula 2LP + CD red / black vinyl.

Genesis Piano Project: the new album - BUY

The cover album on two acoustic pianos of some of the band's most famous songs.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

“Genesis Piano Project”, the cover album on two acoustic pianos of some of the most famous songs of the British rock band.

Buy it here:

It was recorded by pianists Adam Kromelow and Angelo Di Loreto at the Charterhouse School in Godalming, UK - the college where Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips gave birth to Genesis.

Recorded and mixed by Stefano Riccò with the mobile studio of Studio Esagono and the logistical support of Nigel Sanders, "Genesis Piano Project" is a tribute to the progressive music of Genesis which here are rearranged and performed on a classical piano: songs with complex sound structures , able to pass from whispered melodies, which evoke bucolic or disturbing landscapes, to strongly rock sections. Listening to the arrangements of the Genesis Piano Project sometimes makes you think you are at a classical music concert, other times you are in front of a real rock band.

"It was difficult to decide which songs to record - says Adam Kromelow - because we probably had enough material for two albums! We wanted to have songs from different records in order to find the right balance to showcase the wide dynamic range of their work. The hope is that listeners will be able to discover this music in a new way by listening to it performed on two pianos ».

Below is the tracklist of the album:

1. The Fountain Of Salmacis

2. One For The Vine

3. Seven Stones

4. Stagnation

5. Entangled

6. Firth Of Fifth / Supper's Ready

7. For Absent Friends / Horizons

8. The Cinema Show

«I am very excited to share this work with Genesis fans around the world. This album - continues Adam - will forever be one of the most significant recordings of my life because it will always carry hundreds of good memories of my best friend Angelo. I am really happy that, through this album, Angelo's music will continue to bring joy to people ".

The Genesis Piano Project was born when the two pianists Angelo Di Loreto, born in Buffalo, and Adam Kromelow, born in Chicago, found themselves in the same class at the Manhattan School of Music.

When Adam played Angelo with the music of the British progressive-rock group Genesis, they had the idea of ​​rearranging their revolutionary compositions for two pianos.

This project immediately captured both Genesis fans and new listeners, through concerts in Steinway Piano showrooms and galleries across the United States. Their videos soon achieved international recognition and have amassed over a million views today.

In mid-2014, Giovanni Amighetti, a producer who has worked with many artists on Peter Gabriel's Real World Records label, discovered the Genesis Piano Project online and offered to take them to Europe for their first overseas tour.

Since then, the duo have regularly toured Europe, performing critically acclaimed concerts in Rome, Catania, Milan, Schio, Parma, Montreal, Porto, Lisbon, the Madeira Islands and the Azores.

In 2015 the Genesis Piano Project released their first live EP entitled “Live in Italy”. After Angelo's untimely death in October 2020, Adam is continuing the Genesis Piano Project as a soloist in memory of his friend.

On his website you can order copies signed by Steve - CLICK HERE.

Here is the Italian edition:

And the previous English edition:

In this short video Steve thanks everyone «For the excellent feedback on the autobiography, and for those who have not yet read it»:

As for his music, Steve wrote a very detailed tome, fun and enveloping who traces the graph of his life, but with emphasis on his years with Genesis, from the band's rapid rise to success.

Steve speaks frankly of his first years of life, of the period with Genesis and of his personal relationships with the other four members of the band, with an anecdotes in the daily life of this important rock band.

Naturally A Genesis In My Bed also tells Steve's solo career, since he left Genesis and the many different journeys he took.

With his creative talent and his great lightness, A Genesis In My Bed it is a compelling reading.

A must for Genesis fans, but also for music lovers in general and for avid readers of autobiographies full of heartfelt and emotional stories.

He says Steve: “I explore personal feelings. I have answered many questions that fans have asked me over the years, such as why I quit Genesis. It took fifteen years to complete this book, writing between tours, recordings and legal challenges, but this gave me time to really develop it ».

Here are some quotes from Steve from the book (from Steve Hackett website):

The arrival in Genesis:

"He raised his head and looked at me with a steel look ..." You heard about it, didn't you? "

Once again I was against that invisible wall, aware that I could have chosen to sit there and give in or climb over it. But once you get over the wall, you can't go back. I knew I was about to take a leap into that new world and that my life was about to change forever. I was about to board a spaceship on a new planet with a group of aliens. I emptied my glass, put it down and walked out the door into the sun, clutching that note to Mars. "

The creation of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway:

“We were writing and recording at high intensity. The Lamb is a dense album with tons of details. All full of ideas, the record was full of themes like "Times Square is full of people on a hectic night, the voice suddenly abrasive like the horn of a New York fire truck. Forget sweet dreams ... the drama. takes place day and night ".

The Lamb seemed like a titanic adventure that we were trying to survive ... We hit the icebergs, but bravely dragged us into shark-infested and unexplored waters. "

The exit from Genesis:

“Did I do the right thing? It was a big risk and a huge step into the unknown. I was leaving a world class band that was now filling arenas internationally. I had to trust the power of my instincts and my inspiration ... "

Anecdote about a border customs experience:

“On one occasion, after customs found a leftover illegal substance left by a previous band in the car we hired, we were taken to separate rooms. The customs officers were pugnacious and aggressive, challenging me with large dogs while I was there without my clothes on. Then suddenly an alarm startled these nervous characters who quickly pulled out their guns and turned wildly, their nostrils sniffing ... "

A Genesis concert involved in a revolution:

“The government was about to be overthrown the next day and it was like an explosion. There was a riot outside the club with guns and firecrackers exploding and overturning army jeeps on the street. I've heard there have been fatalities. The concert was oversold. Pyramids of people climbing one another, we were dangerously close to the balconies. "

And of his latest works, Steve says: 

«Musically, I am proud of the most recent album 'At The Edge Of Light', with the creative involvement of Roger and Jo, as well as the contribution of band members, orchestral musicians, singers and instrumentalists from distant worlds ...»

The launch of A Genesis In My Bed arrives when Steve is stuck at home, like all of us, after having to abandon his US tour on short notice. 

«I had never had to stop a tour halfway before ... However the concerts have been postponed, so we'll be back!

Being on the last flight from Philadelphia to London reminded me of my song "The last train to Istanbul". We were lucky to come home ...

We have the "Seconds Out" tour in front of us, so we can look beyond these dark times. We have every intention of playing as soon as the spaces are open again. "

On the occasion of the book's release, Steve has released some videos that tell passages of his career closely related to his autobiography. Here they are:
