SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a 29 years old Italian guy, and I will be in Houston from October 2017 for job reasons.
Music is my first passion, both listened and played: I started playing the piano at the age of 6 for 15 years. In high school, at 13, I started playing the drums, which is my main instrument right now. During the years, I also learned to play guitar and bass, with whom I am now quite experienced. I have also good singing skills.

In Italy I used to play the drums and sing in a rock-band called Polarbeers (you can serach for us on itunes, spotify, be, etc), with whom I recorded two albums. In the second album (New Revolution), recorded in 2015, I shared songwriting duties and played the drums, percussions, keyboards, bass, backing vocals. I also played rhytm and lead guitars and lead vocals on track Little Sister (that you can listen on this page).

I am really committed in playing in a band while in Houston and dedicate as much time as I can (evenings and weekends). I am willing also to make concerts, record albums and eventually small tours.

I'm in search for musicians who are willing to explore music in its entirety, without setting genre boundaries.

Influences

I basically listen to every kind of music, without any boundary or prejudice.
I gew up listening to punk rock in every sub-genre (pop punk, hardcore punk, melodic hardcore, 70's punk rock, etc.) and to rock music (alternative rock, crossover, classic rock, stoner, etc.)
In the last 6 years I went deeply into soul, funk, R&B, hip hop and neo R&B music, which is my main influence today.

The bands/artists that are nfluencing me the most at the moment include Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, The XX, Thundercat, Glass Animals, Sheer Mag, Sampha, Bon Iver, Japandroids, Anderson .Paak.
