The Italians are an Italian-British pop-rock band founded in 2009 by British singer-songwriter William Oliver Knight. He had moved from London to Italy to find musical inspiration. In 2015 the original group disbanded and William met bassist Alberto Rigoni. This started a new era for The Italians, which saw the duo add a drummer in Alessandro Miazzi. The first full album ‘Oh Boys What Have You Done’ (2015) was comprised of twelve songs expressing different musical eras. It was a collection of stories with a variety of different characters.
In April 2016 William Knight, Alberto Rigoni and Alessandro Miazzi entered the studio and recorded the ‘Live at the Teatro delle Voci’ EP. They chose four songs from ‘Oh Boys What Have You Done’ to record in a natural atmosphere.
