Riccardo Adamo on SoundBetter

Graduate singer with several record collaborations in the assets.

I am a graduate singer at Conservatory of Music in Perugia (Italy), where I also attended two years the Composition course. The study of singing was always accompanied by a deepening also in contemporary music (both singing and composing), ranging from pop to metal and facing different styles and techniques. Always keeping "one foot on the stage", I began my career as a manager for opera singers, following several names of international scene and collaborating with opera agencies. But in the end the call of singing and writing my own music was stronger and I decided to go back to being a full time artist.
