““Born into the entertainment industry” is a term that can come off as pretentious, but with Dante Berardi Jr it is fitting. The son of a composer with a mastery of seven instruments and Godson to Order of Canada member and original teen idol Bobby Curtola he has been on stage since his early days. On the business side of the industry he is the Grandson to a radio station manager and Donald K Donald East Coast stalwart Ralph Craig. Craig is one of the men credited with building the foundation of the current entertainment industry in New Brunswick.
A multi-instrumentalist himself, Dante cut his teeth touring Canada and Europe with various musical acts, most notably CAIRO. He has also shared the stage with Sampson, Chloe Charles, The Balconies, Dr Draw and Half Twin. In 2015 CAIRO’s album “A History of Reasons” (which he co-wrote and co-produced) was named one of the 50 Best Albums of 2015 by CBC and garnered critical acclaim. While not on stage, he mentors young artists with Coalition ‘s Canadian Music Incubator, works with Toronto Music City on various Toronto music initiatives, and Copyrights.
Managed and Published By CCS Rights Management, Dante focuses on creating great art, helping others further their career with his experiences, and better the music eco system of Canada on the whole.”
