TINE - Massimo Tinetti


A life full of love for music. I love writing songs. Some I write in Italian, others I write in English. I play the Blues Harp and the Guitar. Mainly I love the Blues, but there are a wide range of music genres that I like. Rock, Soul, R'n'B, Gospel, Country, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Latin are all kind of music I love too. I'm recording the songs I wrote and I'm doing it all by myself. It's a hard work, but it's funny. I'm not a professional musician and singer, but this is my true and real passion. I hope you like my songs. If you want to stay in touch with me, follow me on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/Tine0
