Loz Netto (Musician, Composer, Songwriter, Vocalist, Guitarist, Keyboardist, Producer, Engineer, Programmer and Film maker). Loz Netto started his professional career at seventeen playing guitar on tour for Ben ‘E’ King (Ex lead singer for The Drifters, playing songs such as ‘Stand by Me’ and ‘Under the Boardwalk’ He then joined the cult soul/funk band Moon as guitarist and songwriter and signed to CBS records, recording two albums with the band, while touring the U.K and Europe.
Loz then went on to become a founder member of the band ‘Sniff ‘n’ The Tears’ who had a world wide award winning hit record with the song ‘Drivers Seat’ from the acclaimed album `Fickle Heart` The single is still constantly played on BBC radio 2, across Europe and the U.S Loz recorded two albums with the band and toured most of the world including a three month tour of the U.S.A playing large seating capacity football stadiums. While with the band Loz appeared on various T.V shows including Top of The Pops, The Old Grey Whistle Test, European and U.S.A T.V.
In 1982 Loz launched a solo career signing to ATV music publishing, and Polygram records, he recorded his first critically acclaimed solo album at George Martins Air studio’s His first single ‘Fade Away’ appeared in the U.S top 40 in six weeks. The single also went top ten in Holland and charted in most European countries.
Out of a deal and out of cash it was time to go back to work. So around 1984 I started writing more material for a new album, and in 1985 signed to Atlantic Records in New York. I was proud to be personally signed by Ahmet Ertigun the founder of the company. In November of the same year my first son was born Elliot Netto. I was at the birth and it was one of the two greatest experiences in my life. We recorded the album at Revolution studio’s in Stockport. The Producer and Engineer was the legendary and brilliant Andy (Rocky) MacPherson still a good friend to this day. Andy also taught me a lot about studio recording techniques, programming and endurance. The album entitled simply ‘Loz Netto’ came out in 1986 to critical acclaim and we received good airplay from the first single ‘We Touch’. The song was used throughout the movie remake of ‘And God Created Woman’ starring Rebeca DeMornay, Directed by Rodger Vadim. The same song was also featured in ‘The Noon Plane’ episode of Miami Vice.
