Live music and piano bar entertainment
I mostly sing and play guitar (in addition to the bass guitar and sometimes the keyboard), using midi and audio backing tracks or unplugged set.
I carefully choose my repertoire, and my performances are always heartfelt – I really give it my all, and I do it with style.
I always offer a selection of first-class pieces, both international and Italian, from a variety of genres: pop, rock, soul, evergreens, jazz standards, bossa nova and dance hits; I can sing in Italian, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
Occasionally, I will perform duets with a female singer, be accompanied by a musician or play in a band.
Demos and theme songs
I have written many compositions of my own: not only songs, but also instrumental pieces, some of which were composed with the theatre in mind.
I also write and arrange pieces for other performers, and I am currently re-recording the songs composed with ZONA, the prog-band in which I played in the ‘80s (listen to the demos here).
All demos were recorded in a Home studio: drums and keyboards were created using midi sequencing, while bass and guitar (and vocals, naturally), were recorded “live”.
I carefully select the tracks I use to play and sing along to, putting a lot of time and effort into achieving something that sounds as “live” as possible.
Each backing track undergoes an editing process, which involves choosing sounds and adjusting volumes and effects; the improvement of end sections and arrangements; some fine-tuning, which may require overdubbing an additional guitar part or a chorus sung by me.
Remarkably vast, both international and Italian, it encompasses evergreens and modern music, jazz ballads and bossa nova, rock and folk, latino and dance hits, in addition to acoustic pieces (guitar and vocals).
