I was born in Locarno, Switzerland, on May the 18th 1992. Since I was a kid I’ve always loved to sing and listen to music.

I decided I wanted to be a musician at the age of 13, when I first heard Jon Lord, the organist from Deep Purple. I immediately knew that I wanted to play the Hammond organ.

And that was it, until I discovered the blues and electronic music and fell in love with guitars and synthesizers, and at the same time I started to write my first songs.

After high school, I started to train as camera operator and graduated as sound technician. My first job was on a documentary by my father, Fulvio Mariani, in the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh. There, my inspiration was catalysed by the majestic, desert environment, and when I got back home I had lots of ideas which I then developed into songs for my debut album.

I produced ALLUVISION in 2015 at La Sauna Recording Studio (Varese, Italy) with Andrea Cajelli, a great sound engineer and a wonderful man who really boosted my excitement and love for studio work but sadly passed away shortly after.

After a couple of years of live activity and music composition for films, I recorded my 2nd album You Could Almost with Serena Maggini and Dario Pedrazzi, the musicians I was working with at that time, and we presented it on October the 24th 2019.

I’m currently touring alone as a solo artist with a guitar, a keyboard and a drum machine, to bring my music onstage in a new form and with a lightweight yet powerful setup.
