Instrumental progressive rock
Progressive rock instrumental one man band with a large vision of many musical styles from acoustic, to a heavy sound, from melodic taste to a very dissonant atmosphere, without falling in a merely virtuosistic exhibition.
Band/artist history
I start to play guitar at sixteen, playing Italian songwriters music. After I discovered the rock world and I move my taste to hard rock and rock blues territories. The listening of Genesis and Yes was a flash in my mind. I've understanded my musical direction. I forged my composition approach playing in various group performing own songs. I spent ten years with a prog band called Sithonia, producing foer album, playing many gigs with a great appreciation in the prog's world. At the same time I've always make my own music with my little personal studio. In the last years I,ve played with cover bands performing Genesis and Rush music. Actually I play with a band called As Jam with an album coming soon.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I played lived in the past with many situations but now I got no possibilities to play this material on concert. Maybe on tomorrow...
