Here, More Letters Records, 2017
"Here" is a collection of notes, drafts, little photographs of a small town and of my world. There is a lot inside but not enough. Through all this stuff, there’s an idea that links everything: it helps memories make sense, it preserves them, renews them, fixes them in time.
"Here" was recorded at home in a cold winter night by Wolfman Bob, with Gino listening and a couple of red wine bottles to break the ice.
"Here" is about memories but it's also about love. And love is caring, and caring is sharing. And I'm really pleased to share it with all of you. Hope you like it too.
Dedicated to my family

Despite the simplicity of this record there’s a lot of work behind it, work to be grateful to. Thanks to Wolfman Bob who recorded it with his Braingasm lab mic and a field recorder in a night of cold and wine; thanks to Sylvie Lewis who helped me write down the lyrics of Into Those Nights; thanks to Ivan Abbattista who designed the beautiful cover and to Zia Patrizia for her wonderful photos; thanks to Aldo Dith who scanned and adapted those photos; thanks to Marco Cannillo who teach me how to put those photos in a video; thanks to Francesco Curci for setting my guitar so patiently every time; thanks to all the people in the photos, in a way you made me rich; many, many thanks to my beloved all time/everytime listeners Massimo Basile, Aldo Strippoli, Gino Bruno, Federico Pirozzi, Massimo Reali and More Letters Records. Thanks to my band of brothers, Barbados, without you nothing would be possible.
And thanks to the ones who cared, who inspired it, who stayed, who went away, who felt it, who loved it and who, despite all, still believe in me.
