 London, England, GBR


Fabio Tassinari (born 15 January 1981), better known by his stage name "Mister Peculiar", is an Italian guitarist, singer and songwriter. Since he started playin' guitar at age 14, he has collaborated and played with several bands and artists, both in Italy and UK, ranging from classic blues to more hard rock, from folk to pop, both covers and own material.

After few local bands in his early career, in 2002 he formed Sheer Dulled & the Peculiar Brains: a 70s pop-influenced rock band with which he wrote lots of compositions and recorded an EP by the same name. During the same period he also formed country/folk acoustic cover band Gold Rush Acoustic Trio. After about 5 years of gigging with SDPB and Gold Rush, he formed Blues Breakout with Paolo Pizzi on bass: a blues three-pieces band with which he recorded a live-in-studio album of classic blues covers.

In 2009, after a brief period in London writing songs, gigging and recording an EP with english pop band The Shindig Addicts (official video available here), he returned to Italy and formed the rock/blues covers trio The Bridge and recorded an EP.

After a year gigging with The Bridge, he returned to London to promote his own solo album "I should follow Steve's thought": a mix of folk, rock and blues songs he wrote, composed and recorded the previous year in Italy. The album is available on iTunes and all the major Digital Stores.

Currently he lives in London working on his solo career, though still collaborating with Blues Breakout and The Bridge in Italy.
