grew up in Calabria in the South of Italy, where he obtained his first guitar at
the age of 11. Actually, it was his older sister's guitar - she bequeathed him the
instrument, a book of chords and knowledge of the "C" turnaround. Within days, he
had taught himself to play and hours of practice and dedication followed. Within
three months, he was performing live for the first time with his little school band.
The trajectory towards mature musicianship had begun.
Luca is entirely self-taught. Among sounds that influenced him along the
way were the blues and rock playing of Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler
and David Gilmour. In his mid-teens, Luca discovered Joe Pass,
John Leslie "Wes" Montgomery, George Benson and Larry Carlton,
which pointed him in a jazz direction. By the age of 16, Luca had left Calabria
for Florence, where a thriving live music scene soon led to his discovery of Brazilian
sounds and rhythms - a moment of revelation that has had a lasting influence upon
all his subsequent work.
Now living, composing and performing in London, Luca is currently recording
his second album.
