Stefano May has released his new video for the track titled ‘Hideaway’ as well as his new eponymous album. Brought by a random chance encounter with a homeless man he met in Tijuana, Mexico, ‘Hideaway’ delvies into the conversation between the two and shows how each and every one of us can touch and affect the life of someone we may have never met had it not been for chance.
Beautifully constructed and masterfully delivered, ‘Hideaway’ shows that Stefano is an artist that lets life engulf and immerse him while realizing that we are all a part of something bigger than ourselves. This is what music is meant to be.

About Stefano May
Stefano May is a singer, songwriter and piano virtuoso who fuses soul, pop and classical for an enthralling musical journey. The talented songwriter’s music is marked by hope, love and connection in the aim to heal.
Born in Italy, Stefano took to music at an early age and began classical piano training at age seven. He quickly gained notoriety by performing on popular Italian TV shows, and since then has collaborated with famed songwriters, as well as the famed director Franco Zeffirelli. Honing his craft further, the musician and singer has ultimately composed and scored motion picture soundtracks under the guidance of award-winning filmmaker Jamal Joseph.
2019 marked the beginning of his solo project, when Stefano began collaborating with famed producer Chico Bennett (Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Prince). His debut single “Prayer” highlights the songwriter’s warm and confessional vocals brimming with such passion, and yet such delicate vibrato tones. Stefano’s otherworldly vocal delivery glides with memorable melodies over intimate piano. The moving lyrics detail the act of loving again after hardship and disconnection. With comparisons to Sam Smith, Andrea Bocelli, and Michael Bublé, “Prayer” marked a graceful and exciting debut for this generational artist on the rise.
In Stefano’s single “We Are The Power,” the songwriter invites us all to take part in healing the world together. The glorious composition features soulful vocals, a soaring melody, and a vivacious chorus complete with a gospel choir for a most heartfelt demonstration of love, optimism, and vitality. “Find My Way” was born as a musical tribute to the Motown world that has been highly influential to Stefano’s musical taste and sound since he was a young child. Thematically, the song was inspired by his mother, who raised Stefano to pursue big dreams and share his gifts with strength, patience, and heartfelt dedication. “False Horizon” is a festival inspired song featuring stylistic tangents of iconic California desert vintage, while “Don’t Say Goodbye” is a song that puts a spotlight on second chances in life and relationships.
In his late 2022, Stefano May channeled intimate experiences of pain, plunging into life’s hardest moments in a hauntingly beautiful ballad called “Crazy.”
Most recently, the songwriter partnered with the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation (ARPF) the single “Hope It Will Remind You”, a heart-wrenching and bittersweet dedication to those affected by the disease.
Currently Stefano is gearing up for his upcoming release “HIDEAWAY” which will be released alongside his debut self-titled album. “HIDEAWAY” offers a window into the universal human experience that unites us as individuals on our own unique paths. Inspired by a serendipitous connection with a homeless man during a trip to Tijuana, Mexico, “HIDEAWAY” reminds us that sometimes the best lessons reveal themselves at the most unexpected moments.
May is an LGBTQ+ artist originally born in Soveria Mannelli, Italy. Recently he was honored to perform at the annual ADDF event in Washington, DC benefiting Alzheimers followed up by several performances and residencies in the US and abroad. He was recently featured on an NPR in Ohio and has received high acclaim from CNN Argentina, GLAAD, Ladygunn, and Good Day Live to name a few.
Stefano May aims to bring people together through the power of music. By sharing his gifts, he empowers others to do the same. “Music is made to heal your soul. People find commonality in the music they listen to and every song has the right time and place for each of its listeners.”
