Vittorio Tolomeo, also known as Quarry, is an indie pop rock singer songwriter based in London. Bilingual in English and Italian, tireless musical explorer, he’s been playing all around Europe, solo and with some bands and, as a producer, he’s exploring new territories such as electronic and ambient.
Some of his most notable works include the album “Prize Day”, released by former president of Island Records Marshall Blonstein through his label Audio Fidelity, which got a lot of airplay in many countries, and the single “Aria” that was theme music for “Demo”, a popular radio show aired on Italian public broadcasting RAI.
He then founded the band Prizeday. Their debut album "Apps Will Grow Like Feathers” was released through New Zealand’s Do It Records. They toured across Europe performing at The Great Escape Festival and also opening some shows for The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. Their short film “War Zone”, including five songs of the album, shot in Portugal to accompany the band's debut album, was showcased to the world's media at Cannes Film Festival in 2014.
“Vittorio’s new album “Prize Day” is as expressive and colorful as the artist that created the music and the lyrics. He is a one of a kind artist, and we’re thrilled to be working with him". Marshall Blonstein, president of Morada Records/Audio Fidelity
“The qualities that define Vittorio Tolomeo are the same qualities that define his music. He is an intensely spiritual guy, an intensely nice guy, and these aspects of character shine through each and every song.” Bruce Replogle, Rock Management USA
“Not only can Prizeday write some great catchy tunes they also have an image and style that sets them apart from the rest”. Paul Marshall, director of Do It Records
