Biography

I’ve started to listen to music with passion since I was young but only at 16 I started play guitar, as selftought, driven by great players like Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Jeff Beck e Van Halen.

After few years that experience I met one of the oldest and most famous Italian Blues Band, the Blue Stuff. With this band I have played thousand gigs, festivals and recorded all the official releases since 1999. We had experiences also at Italian Television (Renzo Arbore live show).

On october 2009 I’ve released my first solo album, "Blues On Me", including my own songs reflecting all my influences during the earlycareer.

On 2012 I’ve released “Mandolin Blues”, the first Italian record entirely dedicated to the Blues Mandolin.

On 2016 the latest release: “Mandolin Blues – The Piano Sessions”. This album is the natural evolution of Mandolin Blues, exploring today the interplay between mandolin and piano, with an offering of styles from ’20 and ’30 swing and Blues. The live recording sound, the acoustic mood with upright bass and the talented veteran Italian Blues pianist Mario Donatone, together with the authentic and original mandolin style of Lino Muoio, make this album unique among the European Blues recordings.

Mandolin Blues - The Piano Sessions

The Piano Sessions is the natural evolution of Mandolin Blues, exploring today the interplay between mandolin and piano, with an offering of styles from ’20 and ’30 swing and Blues.

Mandolin Blues

The first Italian record dedicated to the Blues Mandolin. The worldwide collaboration resulted in a diverse offering of styles, from the vintage country Blues inspiration of Yank Rachell to the Chicago style of Carl Martin, and a healthy dose of jazz, swing and bluegrass.
Wonderful grooves. I especially like the diversity of sound and rhythms, from slow blues to New Orleans jazz. And of course your mandolin playing! Bravissimo.
Rich Del Grosso
You may be my favorite blues mandolinist. The songwriting and performance are excellent. My favorite cut is probably Memphis Blues. You have a natural command of the mandolin.
Jim Richter

Blues on Me

My first solo album. Acoustic Blues with a touch of swing and intrumentals, English lyrics.
It’s an impressive debut – good songwriting in the spirit of traditional blues lyrics. And a lot of versatility on guitar – finger picking, slide, lead, a bit of jazz, plus mandolin and banjo. Really good production and packaging too. I hope you have success with it. (Your “Roosevelt Stomp” reminded me of Charlie McCoy.)
Prof. David Evans (Big Road Blues/Musicologist)
