"Independently from anything and anyone"
Most of us struggle everyday trying to find their own way in life. We find ourselves, constantly changing our path or decisions just to please people around us. We are afraid of not being accepted and liked otherwise.
Music makes no ecception to this. Every musician is afraid that their work would not get enough attention, if it’s not commercial enough or if it’s made the “wrong” way.
That leads too many artists unfortunately, to loose their own style and uniqueness. Thus loosing the chance to stand out.
Each of us is different, very often it’s just this attitude to please everyone that make us act, think and live almost identical lives.
Finding the right balance is the key for me. That’s what I do in my life everyday, and that’s how I work on my music.
The debut album
Calling it my “first album” makes it look like something I started with. Actually…it was the last step of an already long journey for me.
I wanted it to be as authenic as possible. No producers, no labels, no tv shows…..just my music and you.
Most people are lost so much in their routine that don’t ever find themselves asking why they do what they do. Therefore, it has always been so hard to find the right people to work with. Someone having the same mindset…
That led me to publish my first album all by myself :
The result was surely not the best album I could ever make,
but the point was making something that truly represent who I am. It’s a piece of my journey, about discovering a better version of myself each day. That’s what art is intended to be for people like me.
I’m what people sometimes call a “Blue-Eyed Soul” artist. It’s a soul music made by non afro-american artists, that often blends also other styles in it. But some people consider it a racist definition, so I prefer to call it just “Soul music”. Music has no boundaries.
My favorite artist of all time is Stevie Wonder.
In this album you can hear influences of his music, expecially in “Angels in pain” and “Looking for something“. But I think you would have noticed it even without hinting it!
Then, I’m heavily influenced by jazz and funk too, but I like to keep things simple and melodic in my music. It’s a specific niche called “Crossover Jazz“.
You can hear what I’m talking about in songs like “Headache“, “Ora non più” and “Unattainable 4 me“.
