Salmo, The Bloody Beetroots, Sfera Ebbasta

I started playing drums when I was 4. After finishing my high school studies, I joined the pop-punk band called Vanilla Sky who is Italian band who had the chance to tour all around the world for more than ten years. With that band I played more than 500 shows, in three different continents and uncountable countries. Vanilla Sky released 5 albums. Three of them published and released by Universal Music. In another record, the band collaborated with Mark Hoppus from Blink-182 who lent his voice in a song. After traveling and playing all around Europe and Asia, the band became a huge reality in the Russian market. In this country we played 100+ shows in front of huge and crazy crowds. Right after I got a call from the #1 rapper in Italy.

His name is Salmo. With him I started playing bigger venues, and on the first tour, I had the honor to play live the tracks that Travis Barker recorded in studio for him. In just one year and half of tour with Salmo, I did more than 150 shows throughout Italy and Europe. In 2017 I joined the international band called The Bloody Beetroots. This band can be considered as the Electro-Rock music pioneer in 2007. The band has collaborated with artists like: Tommy Lee from Motley Crue, Steve Aoky, Paul McCartney, Jay Buchanan and many more. The Bloody Beetroots played in every worldwide massive festivals like: Coachella, Lollapalooza, Rock am Ring, Frequency, Bonnaroo, SummerSonic Japan etc In 2 years of tour I played everywhere and shared the stage with: Foo Fighters, Dua Lipa, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age, 30 Seconds To Mars, Post Malone, Nine Inch Nails, Marshmello, Mike Shinoda, Noel Gallagher, Shawn Mendes, Jack White and many more.

    I get inspired from everyone and everything, not only musicians or drummers but from people and experiences in general that push me doing more and better. My daily goal is to be a better person and human being from what I was yesterday and this is can be applied to the drums as well. I try to learn from everyone no matter how famous or influent those people are.


    Find your own path. Get inspired from others but don't emulate and copy them. You'd rather take tips and concepts and rielaborate them thru your abilities and your way to see things. Last but not least don't be afraid of taking risk: It's better to regret what you have done than what you haven't.


    I'm pretty proud to have made one of the best stack on my opinion: 18'' Gen16 Crash over a 18'' Oriental China Trash (upside down) - That's my fav combo. More in general the sound of A Custom Crashes are simply phenomenal
