About Me

Ciao!

I was born in Turin (Italy) on 18 June 1978.

I started playing the Piano at the age of fourteen. I studied the first six years of classical music at the Music School in the “Civic Music Institute of Alba(Italy) and two years later at the A.Vivaldi Conservatory in Alessandria (Italy).

I got a jazz course of a year at the Music School in Asti (Italy).

At the same time working and studying I started exploring different genres such as Pop, Rock, Folk, Blues, Funk and Latin music playing over the years in several bands where performances from pubs to squares of several cities in North Italy.

Then I moved to London in 2012 I had to stop playing for two years, afterwards, I started on a different journey by assimilating much experience and musical knowledge “Composition”.

Having lost my job after two years and a half working in a restaurant to learn the language and introduce myself in a different new world,away from family and friends, I spent my savings buying a used keyboard and a speaker to start playing on the street and making money to survive and devote myself exclusively to what I feel I was born to be, play the piano and compose music, share this gift with others.

On YouTube, one of my videos has reached over 5.6 Million views which helps me reach out to the audience all over the world by playing my arrangement of Pirates of the Caribbean/Game of Thrones together in St.Pancras station playing a free piano where also I won in a competition a new digital piano.

I published my first album in July 2017 at the same time as the birth of my daughter Grace Elizabeth, in fact, the name of the album “The Birth” means for the birth of my daughter and the birth of a new life of my career, also I published the second album 7 months later which I am proud to say that my compositions now are around the world playing radio airplay and available to play and to buy in the most critical platforms worldwide as iTunes, Amazon Music, Google, Spotify, Deezer and many others …

Today I dedicate my life to composing music, busking in underground stations in London and playing it to my gigs.

I was nominated in the “New Artist” category at Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall on 03 October 2018 for the EPR AWARDS.

Thank you all for the love and support!
