Billy Carvelli, who is better known as simply 'Carvelli', is an Italian-Canadian producer, MC and entrepreneur who fuses his primary passion, hip hop, and his Italian heritage. The artist's music integrates strummed mandolin, violin, and euro-dance style synths with hip hop beats to his own rhymes. Carvelli has released two EPs, each with corresponding videos for the title tracks “Hooah” and “The Movement”. Now riding high with Whoa, check out what he had to say to Danielle.
Carvelli has come a long way since ambling at his pa's heels under the poker table at The Club, yet he credits his backroom exposure with sculpting the artist he would become. "What an environment," he says. "There's no way a kid should be in there, the smoke, the cards, the money. But there I was. It was four, five nights a week... I guess it's because of that that I always had the feeling it was cool to be where people said you shouldn't go."
