Music career

After giving his demos to Prince in a bid to join Prince's Paisley Park, he recorded his own track Sexappeal (sometimes Sex Appeal) on his own Georgio Records. "A lot of people in Los Angeles just gave me the run- around and didn't want to make a commitment." Allentini stated.[2]

In 1984, Motown Records showed interest in Allentini and he was eventually signed to the label. Said Motown's then-vice-president of A&R Russ Regan "I heard Sexappeal for myself on my car radio one day and felt it was a record Motown had to go after, but I wanted to meet the artist first. I didn't want to buy just a record. We had dinner and I got excited. There was just something about him."[3]

In 1987 Allentini had several songs charting on the Billboard Hot 100, although none climbed any higher than #58. He was much more successful on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, where he earned four Top 10 hits, including "Tina Cherry" which went to #1.[4][5] His 1988 release, "Lover's Lane" reached #54 in the UK Singles Chart.[6]

Allentini recorded two albums on Motown records in the 1980s and one on RCA in the 1990s.

He also worked at MIG Records.[citation needed]

Film career

Georgio made the transition to filmmaker with the 2003 release of Tapped Out, which starred Coolio, Alex Avant and Jimmy Bridges. The film was written, co-produced and co-directed by Allentini, who also composed music for its soundtrack.[7]

Allentini also appeared in the 2000 French documentary entitled XX elles with Estelle Desanges, Lisa Guerlain, Dany Verissimo-Petit and others.[8]

Personal life

Allentini was born in Texas in 1966. [9] His mother was a retail salesperson, his father a Naval officer. [10][11] Georgio moved to Los Angeles at age 17. [12][13]

He is of Black and Italian parentage.[14] Other sources also cite his American Indian, French and Spanish heritage.[15]
