Born on April 5, 1995, Violetta Zironi is an Italian singer-songwriter and actress. She began writing songs at a young age and started performing live in her teens. Zironi rose to fame in 2013 after appearing in the seventh season of the Italian version of The X Factor, where she reached the final and finished third.
She released her debut EP, Dimmi che non passa, in 2013 and later starred in the Netflix film Rose Island (2020). Zironi is known for her eclectic sound, which blends elements of pop, folk, and country music. She has also been praised for her songwriting skills and her powerful vocals.
In December of 2021, at a time when she was contemplating leaving the music industry, Zironi discovered music NFTs, a unique way to distribute her work. She was drawn to the idea of releasing her music on the Ethereum blockchain and subsequently launched her first collection, Handmade Songs, in January 2022. She also hosted regular Twitter spaces to discuss music NFTs.
The positive response to Handmade Songs inspired her to release a new, larger collection. In April 2022, Zironi partnered with Nifty Music to create Moonshot, a collection of 2500 NFTs featuring five songs co-written by herself and Michael Ochs, with production done by Matt Rollings at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville. Her father, Giuseppe Zironi, a former Walt Disney Studios illustrator, provided the artwork for the collection. She has since released several other music NFTs.
Zironi said her world was transformed after discovering NFTs because it opened up a vast realm of possibilities for her creative pursuits. She is grateful for the success thus far and excited for more creative endeavors in the field of NFTs.
