Biography

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

I started as selftought player like all my friends, trying to emulate riffs and licks of these great masters. My first professional band was EDA, in which I’ve played for more than 5 years.

After 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 4 records (see discography).

On october 2009 I’ve released my first solo album, "Blues On Me", including my own songs reflcting all my influences during career. I still love and play all the American root music tradition.

I regulary play mandolin, lap steel guitar, ukulele and banjo and I’m preparing a new record dedicated to the blues mandolin. In 2012 I’ve released my brand new album Mandolin Blues. The first Italian album dedicated to the Blues mandolin.

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)
