As a composer I want my music being intense. I like melodies and dynamics in music and I never agree to be cheap. I like simplicity, which makes music being effective and touchy. My first steps were in the shadow of Ritchie Blackmore; I was influenced by his incredible talent of guitarist. Other maestros I met in my musical path are Wes Montgomery, Jimi Hendrix and the luthe player Anoua Brahem. As a self-taught guitar player, I tried to steal as much as possible from many people and styles of music (like the gypsy or arabic music). As songwriter, I like the touching lyrics of Chris Rea and Heather Nova, or the tongue-in-cheek words of Ian Gillan. I always wanted to look beyond things, and still do. Are you experienced? Yes, I do! I’ve just finished working with a swiss band called “Frances Farmer”, with which I did a lot of gigging in both Italy and Switzerland (November 2006 – January 2008). With this band I recorded 2 demo-cd’s. After a show in Zurich, the stage manager of Avril Lavigne stated my guitar playing and style as ‘unique and very powerful’. Between 2005 and 2006 I did sessions with a couple of swiss rock bands. In April 2004 I started a new project called “Microgrooves”. The music is pop rock. I want it catchy, simple, but not cheap. The lyrics are very personal. The project is a duo, which includes my friend and drummer Cheu, who played already in my previous band. He takes care of the rhythm ideas; I take care of the music and lyrics. “Microgrooves” demo-cd was ready from a couple of days only, when accidentally I played it to a producer of the Swiss national Radio. He liked it and two days after we were aired. After the first radio broadcasting, also a producer of the swiss television wanted us for the forthcoming programs of 2005. The tune “Song for her” reached top 8 in the 2004’s Italian Newcomers charts for RaiRadioUno (the main national state broadcasting channel) and topped the best 10 new talents event M4Music 2005. 2003 - I joined a d.j. for a duo-project. It lasted for about one year and we did a couple of live shows. 2002 - On July 20 I had the big opportunity to play the Montreux Festival Off, the same evening when also Joe Cocker, Anjelique Kidjo and Youssouh N’Dour performed. My band “Lips” played 75’ of my music and it was exciting. In mid September of the same year we have been invited to play a big disco in Modena (Italy) for the “SanremoRock” touring festival. 2000/2002 - my band played a lot of gigs and guested one tv show of the swiss national television TSI, as well as some radio appearances. 1997/2000 - I was the guitar player of “Strange Days”, a rock combo. We played a lot of gigs, opening for the famous Italian songwriter Daniele Silvestri in Lugano, in front of 5000 people. We performed countless clubs and events, covering a lot other band’s songs too, as well as some original stuff. Previously, I joined other bands, playing rock, blues and fusion. I also won a swiss nation-wide contest in 1995.
