He was born in 1986, Diego is a singer-songwriter, Tuscan by chance, his parents of Campania set out from Naples looking for a future and by chance they stopped to Castelfiorentino, from where they never left. In 2006 Diego moved to Milan, he enrolled and then graduated at the MAS (music – arts & show). During these years he clearly realized its authorial inclination, and he had the opportunity to deepen the study of vocal technique, and instruments such as the guitar, and the piano.
His writing is “sugar and lemon between the teeth”, sweet and sour and genuine, like gestures of the past, like when with a smile we asked for bread at the neighbor. A simple and effective language, full of flicks of fresh which contaminate his existence, Diego loves to discover the quality and the beauty of a certain Italian melody, that our contemporary music scene maybe has lost.
He translates into music his experiences and his influences, from Lucio Dalla to Damien Rice, from the Tuscany sun to illusions of independence of the Milanese grey surrounding areas, and everything else that passes through the life of each one of us. He performs daily in live concerts in small and medium contexts, he has been finalist of Musicultura and Sanremo Lab many times. He collaborates with Paolo Lagosta and Lenny De Luca at the Lagosta Bross Studio.
