Bio

Physicist-mathematician by profession, songwriter and guitar player for the love of music. I started playing guitar at the age of 16 studying different genres and styles, including flamenco, jazz and some classical music.

Bilingual Italian/English, my interest is mostly songwriting and I have been writing songs now for at least 25 years. Some of them have been published and sung by famous Italian artists.
Also, on a number of occasions I was fortunate enough to collaborate with professional musicians and songwriters of all nationalities (american, british, german, italian) both here in Italy and abroad, often writing lyrics – in Italian or English – on somebody else’s music but sometimes playing together in recording studios and actively participating also in the composition of the music.

I currently live and work in Italy but I also lived in the USA and England for a short while.

Main influences (and musical preferences): Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Eagles,
Stevie Wonder, Jim Croce, Marvin Gaye, Dianne Warren, Bob Dylan… and I stop here not to bother whoever will read this with a long list.
