Being an artist is a responsability: what you sing is what you are, is how you act. Fame is not the only goal since music is an open door to make your feeling eternal





What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is my therapy: I just write music to tell me the things I normally wouldn't say to myself, neither a therapist would or could

What is your music dream?

Composition is just a dream or a miracle itself. Sharing what inspired my music and lyrics, displaying who I am in a gig or in the aftermath is what I really need to be an happy man

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Education, expecially humanism

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Here, there and everywhere by The Beatles

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

So many but in particular The Beatles and David Bowie; on the italian/neapolitan side I would say Pino Daniele

What inspires you to make music?

Running back through my life digging deep to undestand what happened, how I became the man I am, the role of my parents; daily mood.....sentimental intricacies.....politics

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Sharing, music talks to our souls, let them talk to one another throught the music

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Excited when the message is caught.......and in that very moment anything can happen, even stopping playing 'cos I get moved

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Victim of fame, I don't feel most musicians consider music as vehicle to share, exchange, meet... The extensive use of electronics is ruining the magic of setting up a band, playing and interplaying, sharing the magic of a new composition; less electronics, more study, more sacrifice, more heart

What do you think of Drooble?

Nice, interesting..I am just moving the first steps

What frustrates you most as a musician?

People superficiality towards arts

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes definitely!!

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Intellectual honesty (dunno nowadys...); nowadays besides the quality of the music produced, counts being fiercely "social"
