Valencia, the beautiful..

Hey folks!

I am in Valencia right now..how beautiful..

I had a great time here, with some of my favorite dancers out there, aka Adamo Ciarallo, Vicci Moore and Annette Kühnle.

I met a lot of great people and beautiful dancers, and also some young and passionate musicians.

I definitely look forward to come back here at the end of February for Double Shot festival!!

Time to get ready for the next stop: Tuballoswing, Florence, Italy!!

Love,

Stefano

On tour with Tony Coleman, and much more!!

Hey blues friends!

I’m really excited about touring with the legendary Tony Coleman..BB King’s drummer for more than 30 years!! I can’t believe I have this opportunity, specially because I can share this experience with my friends Henry Carpaneto and Pietro Martinelli (The Ragtime Millionaires), being part of Henry’s quintet..it’s going to be awesome!!!!

Also, tomorrow I’m flying for my first time to Riga, Latvia, to play at Rock Cafe with Kat Baloun! That will be also fun!

Recordings are finished, I just have to wait for the graphic work and then I will send all the material to Spain, to Gaztelupeko Hotsak Records..and they will take care of producing it, the way they do!

I’m really looking forward to all of this..I feel super blessed, I love playing, singing, and mostly I love all of you out there, that enjoy and feel my music..thank you very much!!

All the best,

Stefano 

New Record update!!

Hey blues folks!

I’m extremely happy to tell you that my new record is at the final step..and it sounds glorious! I’m so happy and proud of what I did..actually, this is the second time I play in a record and I take care also of the arranging, composing, mixing, mastering, sampling, etc..

But this time is different. I took a lot of time to improve, with passion, sorrounded by the love and respect of good friends, incredible dancers, amazing musicians, and a beautiful woman too.

I feel blessed for going through this musical journey with such great musicians and friends as The Ragtime Millionaire, aka Pietro Martinelli, Henry Carpaneto and Lorenzo Bergamino.

This record is a perfect picture of myself, right now. Tomorrow maybe it will be different, I enjoy all music everyday, ready to evolve, improve and have fun, open minded.

Here is a little extract of the record.

I’ve chosen this song, instead of an original one, because I received so much love every time I played this song, specially for dancers.

I will update you later about all the special guests and the musicians who played on the record..for now, enjoy the music..

Love you all,

Stefano

Where to find me this week!!

Hi Everybody!

Back from holidays, and immediately at work! I had a lot of fun last weekend, playing in Germany with Hammond organ Maestro Raphael Wressnig, and then in Italy with Marcos Coll, at Andora Blues Festival!

What a great Summer!!

Hey folks!! Hope you are having a great Summer! I can’t definitely complain about anything..I’m playing often and with very good musicians..I have the opportunity to travel around, to visit Countries where I’ve never been..and all of this through my music..I am definitely blessed!!

Recordings of “In close embrace” are close to an end, I still have to record with some guests, but I’m very close to end this record..I’m very satisfied about this one, it represents exactly myself at this point of my life and career..

Now it’s time for a short vacation, to visit family and few friends, and then I will be back at work..lots of cool gigs coming, and new places where to bring my music..Poland, the Blues Cruise, Sweden, Latvia, Belgium, Netherlands, and so on..

I really look forward to all of this..

My best regards!!

Stefano
