Gino Barletta is a Grammy-award-winning, 12x+ platinum-selling songwriter, producer, artist and executive, based in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in Sugarloaf, Pennsylvania, Gino spent his early years rigorously studying classical piano, vocal technique, and musical theater. He even performed professionally in the United States and Europe as a solo vocalist. But it was studying classical vocal performance at the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Music, where he discovered his passion for contemporary and pop music. Relocating to LA, Gino had his first ever writing session where he wrote “Disaster”, later to be recorded by JoJo and become his first Top 40 radio hit. Shortly after, he landed a #1, double-platinum record with Australian superstar, Jessica Mauboy. Then in 2010, Gino met 12-year-old singer Grace Tandon. The two, alongside independent radio promoter Steve Zap, would go on to independently release her first single and future Top 10 hit “Hide Away” under her stage name, Daya.
Gino also vocal-produced The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down”, for which Daya was featured, and co-wrote and executive produced her debut album “Sit Still, Look Pretty.” Since then, Gino has collaborated with many prominent artists, writers, and producers. In 2017, he scored another hit single, co-writing the platinum-selling “Fetish”, by Selena Gomez featuring Gucci Mane. Most recently, he wrote Katy Perry’s critically-acclaimed “Never Really Over”. Gino has received multiple BMI awards for his writing achievements. Other notable writing collaborations include Hailee Steinfeld, Carly Rae Jepsen, Zara Larsson, Danielle Bradberry, Devin Dawson, Jack & Jack, Kandi Burruss, RaeLynn, Erika Jayne, and Carlie Hanson. He is currently developing several new recording acts, and working on his own solo artist project.
