CAMBIO are an Swiss pop/rock group formed in 2007. The band comprises Antonio Guida (lead vocals), Guido Egger (guitar), Lorenzo Weibel (drums), Luca Valentino (guitar and keyboards), Michele Cumar (bass guitar and backing vocals). Their second album released in 2015, Il Tempo, is the result of a rock melodic and musical richness research.
The band was founded in Zurich at the beginning of 2007 by Antonio Guida (lead singer and composer) and Guido Egger (guitar player). Cambio’s initial musical project was based on a few songs that Antonio composed.
After some months Lorenzo Weibel joined them at the drums, Sal Nurrito at the bass guitar and Nicola Curcio at the second guitar. Cambio started performing live in June 2007, hitting several stages in the Switzerland and Germany, receiving a good response from the audience. This positive feedback convinced the band to produce their first album, ‘Evadere’, released in 2007.
At the beginning of 2008 Sal Nurrito and Nicola Curcio decide to leave the band. Later Michele Cumar and Luca Valentino joined the group.
The Euro 2008 football championships held in Austria and Switzerland motivated the band to compose the single ‘Gioco di Testa’, a song dedicated to the Italian national team. The initiative received a good response from Swiss and German mass media. Tages-Anzeiger and Südkurier published articles about Cambio.
At the same time DRS3 aired Gioco di Testa nationwide, and the song was on the top chart of the Swiss music portal mx3. Radio Italy (www.radioitalylive.com), an American based online broadcaster, dedicated attention to Cambio by playing the song several times a day during Euro 2008.
During the following years the band performed live in Switzerland on various stages and worked at the same time on a new music project. This concluded then with the recording of a new album, ‘Il Tempo’, released in 2015.
In early 2016 the SRG SSR (Schweizerische Radio- und Fernsehgesellschaft) included the new album in the programs of Radio Swiss Pop: http://www.radioswisspop.ch/en/musicians/artist/923556b48a88ad10b7b7bf5ff169ad03c7d937/biography
