Music is in every memory I have. Singing was my first love. My life changed when my father put a Queen tape in the car stereo. That beautiful music and the awesome voice of Freddie Mercury were just inspiring. A few years later, when I was 12, one of my classmates invited me to his home. There I met his brother, a young, but already amazing guitarist who introduced me to Dream Theater and prog. That classmate's brother was.. yes, Soul Secret guitar player! He taught me how to play guitar, and I was excited following his bands. I saw the growing up of Soul Secret and the recording of their first songs. I thought: "Wonder if I could be part of this!". So I started training my voice with piano and vocals teacher Loredana D'Angelo. A new world opened its doors to me! Thanks to her I have been studying many different genres, styles and techniques, and I have singed in so many places as lead singer of her choir. Meanwhile I have been a member of "Le Note Sospese", a hard-rock band, for almost 2 years, as rhythm guitar and backing vocals. A funny and beautiful experience. But, when Soul Secret asked me to record something for them, well.. a dream came true! Their music is extraordinary and the guys are great! I know I will always feel at home with them, exactly as I felt the first time I listened to them in their beginning!
