Go Country Records Artists Roster
Easy does it! is what you can say when someone is trying to manage a very delicate stuff…roots music is something sensitive, but he can do it! Cris Mantello is a singer, guitarist, composer and producer who has his roots in American music and 50’s traditional country music. Hillbilly and Country are the main ingredients of his cocktail mix, spiced up with Rock ‘n’ Roll and Italian-Latin “caliente” swing that he learned from his mentor Raf Montrasio, guitar player of world famous Maestro Renato Carosone. He really wear his music, he deeply live it, and this is what makes everything so authentic. Cris themes bring a touch of old and touch of new, something black and something white, being still authentic and respectful of the tradition. He and his guitar have travelled over 20 years across Italy, Switzerland and, recently Spain, Austria, Germany and UK, to bring bop and rhythm in the house. Furthermore Cris usually holds Western and Rockabilly Master Classes over Italy.
Rossella Scarlet is a talented independent songwriter and performer from England with a decidedly ‘roots’ repertoire, firmly characterized by his passion and dedication for the traditional western’ style. The hard work and her determination allowed her to release in 2019 her first EP ‘The Day Will Come’ (El Toro Records). She has received enthusiastic reviews in several European music magazines and this allowed to broaden the sphere of her contacts and to start the collaboration with Cris Mantello, which easily brought her into the Go Country Records family with the new album ‘The Outsider’.This recent publication, in which Cris Mantello participated both as a musician and as an arranger, features also a song by the Ameripolitan Award winner Sean Mencher. Rossella Scarlet is part of Go Country Records record and booking roster.

Big Cowboy is a true ‘songwriter’ and puts his life in his songs, which he musically mounts in a semi-acoustic framework, a modern American folk that could be fully included in the wide musical field called ‘Americana’. His first solo album ‘The Hidden Room‘, released on 22 October 2019, came out from the partnership with the musician and producer Paolo Pizzi, which also backs him in live shows.
She Brought Me Gasoline
The album ‘On Value And Trash’ is their debut album and brings 12 songs of a raw blend of blues, roots country and Americana.
The Zagreb-based She Brought Me Gasoline was noticed outside the borders after the release of their first EP, when the British magazine Maximum Volume Music picked them as the band of the day and summarized a review with the conclusion: “Given their origins, they have absolutely nailed the sound of the music from across the Atlantic that inspires them.” A wider range of blues and American audience have noticed them in 2018 after releasing the single “Sometimes trouble comes” that reached the top of the Croatian national Radio 101 chart for several weeks.
The album ‘On Value And Trash’ was recorded during 2019 in Zagreb and produced by the band itself. Aside of the album, She Brought Me Gasoline released a single called ‘Town of Lost Souls’ with an official music video directed by Doringo, with the Croatian artist Natasa Jakic taking the lead role.
Where the different musical experiences converge to a junction on the Nashville mainline, this is what Spaghetti Jensen band actually delivers, with a solid rock sound.

More than ten years on the scene, Spaghetti Jensen has recently released a collection that includes the best of their first 10 years of music (Livin’ On The Road, 2018) and the brand new album ‘Step By Step‘ (2019).
Dario Snidaro writes to share stories and paths whose main characters are the common people with their emotions, joys and defeats.
