Guest Biography: 


Gabriella wright is an actor, mother and activist. Born in London , she is of Anglo-Mauritian French and Scottish descent. Embracing her many cultures, she has developed an inquisitive nature… always pushing her further on a journey to truly understanding the world of today .

Her career foils her personality… She is involved in a diverse and compelling line of projects, encompassing acting, modelling and humanitarian enterprises.

She has recently featured in action movies such as “The Transporter – Refueled,” and “Security,” along side Sir Ben Kingsley; Indie Productions like “The Alcoholist,” and “The Perfect Husband,” and also political documentary features such as “OXI, an Act of Resistance,” directed by Ken Mcmullen.

She has worked with luxury brands such as Kenzo Perfums, Poiray and Cartier.

Gabriella is a passionate advocate for women and children’s rights. Fund raising and public talking are core to her engagement.

‘‘The most important teaching I gained from being an actor and model is that people look up to you, no matter what. Even if you have inner conflicts, the outer world needs hope and people project what they need on you. Dreams aspirations, role modelling etc… and you sometimes have no idea that by just being present you are affecting and influencing someone’s life. So This job really is not about you , its about them.’’

Guest Biography: 


Bobbo Byrnes is not a musician who remains still very long. Between The Fallen Stars, Riddle and The Stars, and solo performances, Byrnes plays about 150 shows every year. That being the case, it’s no surprise that from Billerica to Berlin, his songs are born from a life on the road. You need look no farther than “Heart like Mine”, in which he explores the theme by singing about the roads that take him from show to show.

Two Sides to This Town is an album that is a product of Byrnes’ busy touring schedule. However not all of the songs are road songs. “Angelia” is a contemplative song, and the one from which the album takes its title. “Angelia, is the spark, the kick in the ass that makes you get up and do something. It’s a song about the muse that inspires you to look beyond your own front yard and be a better version of yourself.”

Seeking is another common theme on this album, whether the object of the search is answers to a division of people, a car that doesn’t break down all the time, or simply the next show. With Byrnes the search for the next show is constant, which is a good thing because it means he’ll continue to write and record heartfelt songs like the ones on this album.

Over the past two years, I’ve played over 330 shows in 17 US states and 7 different countries. I was voted Best Best Band by OC Weekly magazine and Best Country / Americana Band by the OC Music Awards and the LA Music Critic Awards. I received another award from the OC Music Awards for “Best Live Acoustic Band” as well as the SoCal Live Music Comp. I was one of the nominees for the Toronto Independent Music Awards and the South Australian Music Awards. “Two Sides To This Town” landed on Number 25 of the best albums of the year and the song “Angelia” was nominated by NBT Radio in Germany as number 27 of the best songs of the year. 

Bobbo will be on tour in Texas, March, 2019, Arizona in April 2019, California in May 2019, U.K. in June, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic in July and August 2019, East coast of the U.S. in November and Australia in December 2019.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
