Biography

I was born in Lanciano (Italy) where at the age of eleven I started to play guitar and singing. In 1997 I moved to Ancona where I really grew up in music buisness. At the beginning I started to play in a rock band called Mary Looks Up. We produced two CDs in four years, and we took part of opening acts for famous Italian band like Tiromancino and Verdena. The year 2005 was the change of my music adventure. I met Simone Borghi, Italian musician who works in Los Angeles with world-class musicians like Vinnie Colaiuta, Simon Phillips, Steve Lukather, Frank Gambale, Rachel Z, Dean Parks, James Raymond and many others. He asked me to play guitar during his summer tour. This partnership drove us to realize "Master Of This Day", song included in Online, Simone's second album, with special guest like Tony Levin (bass player for Peter Gabriel) and Brian Ray (from Paul McCartney's band). In 2010 I produced my first cd single “Pay The Price” in collaboration with Simone Borghi’s record label SBP and NYX Productions.
In June 2010 I realized my CD single "Pay The Price, " produced by SBP, NYX in collaboration with Stefano Olla Roberto and Diana, with the participation of JP Cervoni on guitar and James Raymond on Fender Rhodes.
The CD is released on major worldwide digital channels.
In 2011 my association with SBP & NYX goes on, for the realization of my solo album, whose title is PROMISES & LIES.
I shall avail myself of the project in collaboration with the band & West Coast (who were members of the team SBP), guitarist JP Cervoni (already in my single host), arranger and pianist Lorenzo Maiani, and of course supervision and artistic directIion by Simone Borghi.
But not all of 2011, I saw a guest appearence in the CD / DVD Live "Acoustic night in Florence"by Simone Borghi released in July 2009 , featuring Lorenzo Maiani, Roberto Diana, Stefano Olla, and the Italian singer Linda Valori,
The live CD is already available on digital channels, while the DVD will be released in March 2011.
