Session Guitarist, music prod

Claudio Tristano on SoundBetter

I love when music sounds at it's best and I won't stop until I get to that point, wether I'm recording guitars or composing or mixing.

I've been working as a studio musician, composer, producer and mixing engineer for well over 10 years. My main influences are pop, blues, rock and country. In 2013 I was top ten finalist (among 2500 guitarists) for the contest "Blues Masters" hosted by Guitar Center and Joe Bonamassa. In 2016 I was the grand prize winner of the "Onstage with Vince Gill" national competition.
I've been touring as a guitarist for multiple bands throughout the world (US, Canada, Italy, Japan...)
I've composed the soundtrack for movie ''So, you want to be a gangster?'' available on Amazon.
I'm currently working as a composer for major TV Networks such as CBS, National Geographic, FOX...
