Genre: Classic rock & pop, guitar instrumentals, soundtrack exotica Hometown: Milan, Italy by way of Boston I'm a rock'n'roll singer-songwriter who also likes to dabble in soundtrack music, guitar instrumentals and the occassional bit of wierdness. I've been playing in bands pretty much non-stop since the early 1980s, though things have slowed down of late as I've got more into home studio recording and production. Currently I'm trying to find some chaps to get back out in the pubs with - just for fun and come what may. I've written a bit of music for Italian television ("Pulp Fiction" type guitar instrumentals) and in 2004 I had the good fortune to do a record with producer Scott Mathews called "Tough Love". Some of my main influences are the Stones, Elvis Costello, as well as plenty of blues and '60s garage rock. If it rocks, it rocks. Discography: Tough Love (2004, Donatello Soul Records) Donatello Soul (2008, internet release) Voxpopped (2009, internet release)
Band/artist history
Yes, I'd say my days of playing in bands are history but who really knows? Okay, but seriously....I've played in a lot of groups but none that really went anywhere.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Not currently playing live but would enjoy getting back into it if the right people came along. Live is dead in Milan right now but hopefully not for long.
Your musical influences
(no particular order) Brian Wilson, John Coltrane, Keith Richards, Bill Frisell, Peter Buck, Mata Hari, Robbie McIntosh, Miles Davis, Scott Mathews, Graham Parker, John Coltrane, Peter Case, Elvis Costello, The Beatles & George Martin, Steve Earle, Curtis Mayfield, the Velvet Underground, Ennio Morricone, Wayne Shorter, the Clash, Dylan....too many to name...anything with soul and a good melody thrown on top.
What equipment do you use?
I have a number of guitars (my Guild D-35 accoustic just survived another trip across - Swiss Air lets you bring your axe on as carry-on luggage) I use and I have a great sounding Traynor amp collecting dust, the little blue one...great sound for a 1X12. Most of my stuff is right into the board these days.
Anything else?
My music makes even eggs exploding in a microwave sound tame - check it out.
