Mauro Malavasi is an Italian pianist, songwriter and producer. Malavasi had during the early 70s educated himself at the conservatory of Bologna, Italy in the composition, choir and orchestral disciplines. During those years he also developed his piano to become a masterly piano player. After a crucial meeting in Bologna, Italy, with businessman Jacques Fred Petrus in the mid 70s the pair created a production company called Goody Music Productions in 1978. After their first project release that year called Macho the followed up that success with new projects like Peter Jacques band and Revanche. All these projects were to be considered more or less studio projects that toured successfully both in Europe and in the US with several different line-ups during the late 70s. Malavasi, that was Petrus' right hand and closest co-worker, wrote most of the tracks on the earliest projects before he got more competition from other by Petrus used Italians like Davide Romani and Paolo Gianolio and later on even from American songwriters like Kashif, Timmy Allen and Kevin Robinson. Petrus and Malavasi launched several new projects during the 80s like Change, B. B. & Q. band and High fashion. Change became both Malavasi's and Petrus' biggest success. During 1980-1983 Malavasi wrote several hits of which "Searching" by Change in 1980, "On the Beat", "Time for Love", "Starlette" and Mistakes" from B. B. & Q. band's 1981 album and "I'll do my best" by The Ritchie family in 1982 are the highlights.
