I have spent my entire life looking for the way to succeed in music, trying every day to give my best and to find my musical way. I was born in 1980 in a small but important city called Siena, Tuscany, and I started to play the guitar at the age of 12, after my parents had tried to have me play saxophone without satisfactory results. My friend Lorenzo Venza, who is a great guitar player, was looking for a rhythm guitarist, so he decided to teach me his art and follow my musical growth.
At the age of 19, after years of local concerts with local bands, my passion led me to Rome to the Percento Musica Music School, where I had the opportunity to study with Stefano Micarelli, Maurizio Lazzaro, Massimiliano Rosati, Andrea Avena, Massimo Fedeli, Umberto Zeppetella, Luca Nostro, Stefano Fresi, Franco Ventura, who are among the greatest guitarists in my country.
In 2008 I opened Rock Factory, a Music School focused on various Rock genres, inspired by the idea that Rock music may work as a real glue to bind society together. After that I started playing in two of my main musical projects: Nhorizon andGuess who's playin' ???. The success of my school started to spread around the country, so I had the big opportunity to become an endorser artist for Schecter guitars in 2013 and eventually an endorser artist for Hughes & Kettner amplifiers in 2014, also thanks to Gold Music, the Italian distributor of these labels. In the same year I was elected in the Siena JazzUniversity Council, becoming one of the youngest councillors ever and having the honour to manage such a big institution side by side with Franco Caroni, director and founder of Siena Jazz.
In those years I also had the honour to teach Music History at two Secondary Schools of my city, “Galileo Galilei” and “Tito Sarrocchi”, as well as in the “Duccio di Buoninsegna” Art Institute, thus meeting a lot of young people interested in music. This allowed me to “go back” to school as a teacher and a musician, which made me really proud.
After the release of “Nightstalkers”, an Ep with Nhorizon, and the Guess who's playin' single “Bimbominkia”, I started working on my solo album, while in the meantime I divided my activities between performing, teaching, recording, band coaching and managing my school. The rest has to be written, every day a door opens up if you keep your desires safe in your pockets.
