In his live he takes root in the blues and rock influences with which he trained as a guitarist and expertly mixes them in pop atmospheres, finding inspiration in what was the "sixties" musical panorama. His sound flies and is enriched by an undergound poem typical of the independent Roman reality. His live is placed in the contemporary world, floating in rarefied “Vapor Wave” atmospheres.
