I’m an Italian pianist and vocalist with a versatile voice, big range, and strong falsetto. I’ve started to study piano at the age of 8 with a private teacher, and when I was 11 years old I went to the Conservatory in Verona (Italy), in 2006 I finished the music academy and I’ve had the Piano Bachelor Degree with the maximum vote. (110 / 110).
I’ve been singing, performing, and playing keyboards in many party bands since the age of 12, and little by little this passion became my job.
In the beginning of my “real career” (around 2010) I did a hundred of gigs in many Italian and European cities, especially with my own ’ 80s / ’ 90s disco music tribute show. This was the first show that I created, (basically, I sing live and I play the keytar with the support of backing tracks, I also use costumes and wigs.) It’s always been a success in clubs, venues, weddings, and private events.
With this show, I’ve had also the chance to work with a famous Italian radio network called RadioNumberOne” (from Bergamo) and I did many gigs with them in many Italian cities. (2011 - I’m still working with them when I’m not on the ships…)
From 2012 until 2014 I’ve been working for Roland Italy in many events and demonstrations as a keyboard player.
Then my first cruise ship experience (as a lead singer and keytar player) was on VikingLine (finnish company) - 2012-2015 (Proshow agency- Marko Luoma) with a quite famous band called “Celebration” (from Bulgaria) ( they perform since 25 years old ).
I’ve been working with them for three years,
not only on VikingLine but also on Tallink&Sjlia and ColorLine (estonian and norwegian companies)
I’ve learned so many things during that time and I’ve got many new skills.
With Celebration, we did many Queen tribute shows in the theater onboard and I was “Freddie”.
I left that job not because I was not happy but because my band leader was taking a % “off the record” from my salaries, and this thing gave me a lot of frustration.
…But always when you close a door, another Big one is opening…. right?
After that Scandinavian beautiful experience
I’ve been working as a “Freddie Mercury impersonator”
(solo artist performance) with my own tribute act for two years (summer season) 2015-2017 in Palma de Mallorca - Spain -. (Trui Agency- David Balaguer)
With this job, I was really satisfied.
I’m still performing with this tribute act whenever I can
and actually in every situation (for example on the cruise ships) when my bosses knew about this “extra thing that I had in my pocket” they always wanted me to perform as a guest entertainer, and I did it, of course.
In 2017 an American big agency and another Italian big one wrote me an email to offer me two different roles, (production singer, and lead singer for a party band) because they saw my videos on Youtube…
but during that time I’ve had a simple surgery at the hospital and I couldn’t accept the jobs…
(I’ve never had any health problem anyway, and I’m totally safe and sound).
So you can understand that I’m a real “transformer”, and I’m not only a piano vocalist (even though that’s the job that I love know…)
But I mean, I have so many skills, and for me, there is no limit in my job, I want to learn and try new experiences every time I have the chance,
and I’m very open-minded.
After that Spanish experience, I’ve been working again on Tallink&Sjlia 2017-2018 (estonian cruise ship)
with an Italian party band called George Montagner band, always as a lead singer and keytar player.
(Selection agency from Italy).
Now it’s time to tell you about the best experience I’ve had so far…
in 2018 I’ve been in touch with Martyn Payne
(Ceo of PeelTalent - Uk).
He wrote a comment below a YouTube video
and he gave me two contracts on Marella Cruise Ships (Tui) and I’ve really enjoyed those ones.
Finally, I understood that I can give my best on the piano together with my voice.
All my skills can be used in this job, and now my international repertoire has almost 1000 songs
of every genre and many instrumentals too.
Unfortunately, I quit on Marella during the Covid19 times and also because the Marella office wanted to work with a cheaper agency… so all the entertainment ended up without another offer for the future.
But now I’m positive about my future, I would love to work for You.
Now I’m also recording my first Piano&Voice Album,
with 18 great tunes from the past, with my own piano arrangements, and I will sell it worldwide soon.
If you want a free copy, just feel free to ask me and I will send it to you.
Last but not least
I’ve been also working for 14 years (2003-2017)
as a producer, and artist for AvexTracks,
a Japanese big music label.
I wrote many dance music hits
for the compilation called SuperEuroBeat.
I would love also to work as a MusicDirector on the cruise ships.
I can easily reed music scores , I can compose , I can write arrangements…
and much more…!
(I have valid STCW documents until 2022)
I’m ready for 4 or 6 months contract whenever you want!
I’m gonna record this audition for you
and I’ll wait for your feedback.
