So with the new single available now, we sat him down to find out more about his background and what has inspired him most over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
Definitely the guitar. It gave me the chance to learn songs that I liked and to start exploring my singing voice.
What kind of music did you love when you were younger?
Particularly pop and rock. My favourite artists when I was younger were Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, Coldplay, MGMT.
What was the first album you remember owning?
I don’t remember the first album I ever owned, but I remember the album release I was most excited for was Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto in 2011.
What is the first song you wished you could have written yourself?
"Il mio canto libero" by Lucio Battisti.
Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?
Music first, then words. I usually record myself while playing random series of chords with my guitar and improvising vocal melodies on top. Once I have a basic tune, I try to find words that fit well with the rhythm and at some point in the process the meaning of the song comes to life.
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
Pink Floyd and Dire Straits.
If you could open the show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
Coldplay or U2. I've been to their concerts and they were both unforgettable experiences!
What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?
The feeling of oneness with yourself when you play and sing.
And what is the most frustrating part?
Wasting a whole afternoon trying to compose a piece of music that just won’t come out.
