musical artist, restless soul

About me

I was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1977. 

I started playing guitar at 6 and recording my own music at 11. I played and sang jazz, rock and world music with different bands in Italy. In 2005, after settling in Rome, I produced my first solo album SO_LO with Rattsburg Records, with great reviews. Since then I started touring Italy with my solo show with guitar, voice and effects.
Between 2007/2011, I toured as THE LOOP DUO with Adriano Arena, with guitars, voices and live loops, producing an album (THE LOOP DUO/BMA and Rattsburg, 2009). In 2009/2010, I produced a new e-EP (O.S.T./Rattsburg, 2009) and an album (LIGHT EARS/Rattsburg 2010).
Since 2008 and extensively after 2011 I've been working on the project NANAUE with  Matteo Nahum.
Between 2011 and 2019 we published 8 singles (Rattsburg Records and Gutenberg Music) and 1 album (NANAUE/Gutenberg Music, 2013) plus 3 recordings for  Italian prog label Mellow Records.
In 2014 I moved to Brussels, Belgium. In September 2017 I re-published my seminal album "Small Engines" (2002, Rattsburg).
2018 has been the year of MONTY, mixed by Matteo Nahum and mastered by Nate Wood.
