Tell us about yourself and what you do?
I am a singer but I also play guitar and piano. I write songs for myself and for other artists. I love to make records and produce music. But most of all I love to perform. Whether it’s a small bar, a street, or a big stage, nothing in the world can compete with the thrill of singing for a crowd. I come from the Blues, Soul and Rock music, but I love the Beatles, David Bowie and the Depeche Mode so if you put everything in the blender I guess it would come out what I do, that is overall something rather electropoppy. I am born and raised in Italy so I love to cook.
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
At 11, my first guitar teacher was an inspiration for the love of music. Then plenty of other amazing teachers did the rest. In life, my hero’s are Gandhi, Martin Luther King, the singer Prince and, of course, my father. He is the man who used to spin some records to me and my brother when we were little.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
Live a life that I used to dream when I was a teenager.
Do you have any tips for our readers that are trying to break in the industry?
I don’t think I am yet the man to give tips to young artists. But all I can recommend, for what I have experienced with me and others until now, just to BE YOURSELF and LOVE WHAT YOU DO. Don’t stress to get there and being sad of not being successful. Love the path, get stronger with the down moments. Appreciate the small crowd and the intimate exhibitions.
