After writing chart-topping hits for the likes of The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Céline Dion and Avril Lavigne, multiple Grammy and Academy Award-nominated composer, songwriter and producer Stephan Moccio releases his debut album ‘Tales of Solace’, earlier this year.

Now having amassed over 55 million streams on his piano album ‘Tales of Solace’ Stephan Moccio returns with a brand-new instrumental Christmas album ‘Winter Poems’, out now on Decca Records.

Stephan went back to his roots as a classical musician and pulled inspiration from some of life’s most profound themes (love, relationships, and ageing) to create an incredibly beautiful body of work in ‘Tales of Solace’. He has now taken that same sentiment and put it towards a soothing and dazzling holiday album which features timeless classics such as ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ and ‘O Holy Night’, and several original compositions.

Music News caught up with Stephan to find out more. Please see our full interview below.
