Biography

2002

Crownheads publishes the homonymous album Crown Heads with the oldest italian indipendent label "LM-RECORDS".
Unfortunately guitarist Nicolas Ermini has to leave the band because of very private reasons during the mix of the album and never comes back.
The potencial of the band is plain to see as the enthusiastic reviews certify but the label hasn't got the energy and the mind to give Crownheads the right push nobody seems to believe in rock 'n' roll.

2004

Even if the album Crown Heads belonged to LM-Records until 2006 Frederick decided to go totally indipendent. He didn't like how the all story was handled by the label. It was time to move on !

2006

Big confusion kicked back in when former drummer Fabrizio "LASK" Cattalani
was jailed in Morocco for almost 2 years.
He is temporarily replaced by a young talent, taken to the Barcley school of
Boston (USA), Marco Talevi (Mark_Eno).
Alex Savelli and Tesch Todaro go back their main projet "Pelican Milk".
At this point Crownheads seemed to be over !!! But Frederick knew it was just
a matter of time and a matter of music. He started to write and work with new
musicians like: "Sabrina Bursi" (Piano and Keyboards) "M.J. Lucas" (Guitars)
"Mark_Eno" ( Drums and Percussions ) Alex Savelli often collaborates with
Frederick and together they recorded "Betania" (pluri awarded production) .

2004

Crownheads becomes manufacturing of himself, beginning collaborations with
organizations (as: Talitha Koum Cameroon) that bring help to the actual society
minorities. The greatest part of the earningses of Crownheads as contribution
are destined for the realization of works, that can guarantee a future to the
children of wealthy countries less, as Africa (contribution for the completion
of a school in Cameroon, that will entertain 200 children).
