Italian diatonic harmonica player pro widely appreciated for technique and expression skills. Over the years, I have gained extensive experience as a live performer having accompanied international artists. I have been exploring a route that taken me toward Jazz and World Music, stretching the instrument into new sonorities and unexplored roles.
Typically a producer will send me an MP3 or WAV of their track and they will also provide a brief and sometimes a written score to work from.
When we’ve established what the producer wants, I’ll record some basic takes.
Then I mix down a preview MP3 to email back to the producer, with my newly recorded harmonica.
They’ll give me their feedback and advice for recording the next take.
When the producer is satisfied, I mix down just the harmonica stem, and upload it for them to drop into their project file. (HQ)
Blues, Country, R&B, Rock, Pop, Etnic, Gypsy Jazz and Jazz Manouche are my favorites styles.
I have a Protools studio with Neumann mics and Universal Audio valve preamps.
Feel free to check out some of my work on youtube included my solist album on my website.
