Robert DiMaio's New Record "FOMO"

“You are a very talented musician and you have great musical ideas. But, I want to hear the record you make when you aren’t trying.” Sage words spoken to me about the release of my first record. I had a lot of life to live to get here, but I am now making the music that I am meant to be making: My newest release, FOMO, is a deep record. It bleeds where it needs to bleed, it grooves where it needs to groove and it yearns and burns in equal measure. I have never been more proud of the music I have made. Listen closely and you’ll hear my deepest stuff in these notes, and some amazing guest musicians as well.

As an Instrumental artist, I don’t want to make “musician” music. However, I do believe in the power of music to tell a story... A universal, accessible and interesting story about being who we are; the pleasure and the pain. I have reached a point where it is no longer relevant how well I can play the guitar. It is about how well I can convey the story, the vibe, and the feel of the music through my instrument, and throughout my writing.

There is a sensuality at play in this music. Joy, pleasure, lust, and deep thought are all inside the notes that define these songs. In the end, it is about the inconvenience and beauty of being human. It is about embracing those things that society attempts to cut out of you in the name of convenience, progress and efficiency.

I want this record to help you live your life, and hear what it sounds like.

As I finish this record, the costs are adding up. Between recording, mixing, and mastering, as well as design and promotional costs, for an independent musician this journey is impossible to go alone. So please join me in supporting this special project in any way you can, whether by pre-ordering a CD, T-shirt, or even simply sharing the above video. While you're at it, check out the other very cool perks that you can grab as thanks for your donation. Make sure you have FOMO the record, and not FOMO the feeling!

Set your imagination free and let the music take you places. Music is, after all, one of the world’s greatest pleasures, and I am happy to help provide the stimulus.

Thank you for the support; it means the world to me. And remember:

Music is the Best,

Robert DiMaio
