„I started to play drums and my father bought me my first Paiste 101 when I was 15. Paiste sounds familiar to me. If you find Paiste cymbals on stage you already know that the sound will be good, no matter if it’s an entry level series or a Formula 602! “

Biography

I was born in 1991, I started to play when I was 15 and I immediately fell in love with drums, playing in my garage with some friends. After some local shows I uploaded my first video, it was a cover of a Melody Fall song on YouTube, they were searching for a new drummer, I sent them this video and they asked me to join the band after a few days. I played my first tour with them around Europe in 2014, then in 2015 we went to China for our first Chinese tour, 14 clubs/14 cities. It was such a big experience for me! In 2016 we went to Japan (first time for me, third time for the band) and we played 5 shows around Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka and Shibuya. In early 2016 I was contacted by Universal Music Italy to join the stage with the international reggaeton artist J Balvin, I played the drums for his song ‘’Ginza’’ at Festival di Sanremo 2016. The show was streamed in Eurovision and on Rai Tv, the main Italian tv channel. Many clothing brands asked me to use their stuff for the show and it was unreal for me, I felt more like a model than a drummer, but I really enjoyed it! In November 2018 I came back to China with Melody Fall for another 15 days tour to promote our new album. In the meantime I was always uploading my stuff on Instagram and my page has grown in these last years, so I started to teach drums and in 2019 I signed my first contract as independent drummer with Vivo Concerti for the Italian rapper “Mostro”. Then I played sold-out shows in Milan, Rome and Turin to promote his new album. In early 2020 Mostro released a new album again and planned a tour, we were in rehearsal to prepare new shows but the virus blocked everything, so Vivo Concerti has postponed these shows to October or lately to 2021. I mainly play drums because I love it, so I keep the hard work on Instagram and now let’s see what is ahead for us!
