When did you first realize that you wanted to be a singer?
I started loving music at a very young age, something around 4 or 5 years old. Anyways the idea of becoming an actual singer came at the age of 10/11 when I started taking singing lessons.
What do you like to listen to for inspiration?
I don’t really listen to music when I need inspiration in order to write a song; I just try to “listen” to what’s inside of me, it’s not so difficult as it seems.
What do you do when you aren’t working on your music?
I’m a sociable guy, I really like seeing my friends and going out. Lately I don’t have that much time for going out though. *Laughs
When did you decide to start singing in English?
I actually already knew since I released my first Italian EP “Senza Paura” at the age of 15. It’s been my purpose from the beginning of the journey.
What was is like to see your single, “Flames,” reach #22 on Billboard’s Top 22 Dance Songs Chart?
Amazing, really amazing, especially for me, as an Italian guy that lives so far from the US and sees America as the place where real things happen.
If you could pick one artist to work with on a single, who would it be?
Lately some of the Pop artists I listen to the most are Shawn Mendes and Twenty One Pilots, however if I had to pick one artist he’d be Drake.
How was your press visit to New York, and what did you get to do while you were there?
Oh very busy.. I’ve been interviewed from several local radios as well as TV programs. Plus, I performed for the very first time in the States, great times..
What was is like working with producer C-Rod?
Oh he’s great. I still work and talk to him very often, he’s a real friend now.
Where is your music available?
Now it’s on YouTube and iTunes and very soon it will be available on Spotify.
What are some projects that you are currently working on?
I’m working on the Dance Version of my last single “I Betcha” and looking forward to climb the Billboard Dance Songs Chart again.
Do you have anything else to add?
