Luca Stricagnoli, Bio
He began his career at the age of 10, studying classical guitar and attending the Conservatory. Still very young, he distinguished himself so much as to obtain the 1st prize in the "Città di Lissone" competition, and as soon as he finally discovered the "Fingerstyle" guitar style he immediately began to spend countless hours on YouTube, studying and learning new techniques simply watching videos.
Thanks to his passion for his inseparable acoustic guitar, he won further competitions, including the "VII Fiuggi International Guitar Festival" with a 100/100 score, the "Festival dei Talenti" and even an opportunity to open the concert of the legendary Italian group "New Trolls." Shortly afterwards, Luca met luthier Davide Serracini, with whom he began a close collaboration to develop the new guitars that helped him achieve his well-deserved success.
In the years that followed, Luke began to create his own unique style that includes, indeed, the use of multiple guitars simultaneously, violin bows, modified capoing, and distinctly unusual tunings.
The major breakthrough in his career came when his arrangement in the song "The Last Of The Mohicans," it was selected by the influential American label Candyrat Records, from there he rapidly reached millions of views and streamings.
Following on from this success, Luca was invited to produce his debut album where an amazing version of "Thunderstruck" stood out, which went viral after only two weeks with over 14 million views.
This fact boosted his notoriety even further, so much that he received invitations from all over the world to perform at the best theaters and auditoriums, festivals and other fascinating "venues" of great prestige.
After an intense concert activity lasting a few years, Luca started working to give birth to his second album "What If?", which includes many of his innovative ideas, including the creation of the "Reversed Triple Neck Guitar." This fabulous instrument, can be considered the first "inverted neck" in the history of the guitar, and it immediately went viral as well, a real "booster" to Luca's career that inevitably produced other prestigious invitations to perform on stage along with Nobel Prize winners and Directors of Multinational Corporations, as well as having the reward of the use of his music in several TV shows well known to the public at large.
Luca ha successivamente creato un suo canale personale su YouTube e ha rapidamente acquisito centinaia di migliaia di iscritti, vincendo diversi premi tra cui il “Creator Award” mentre intensifica una piacevole collaborazione con sua moglie, la nota cantautrice tedesca Meg Pfeiffer. Insieme hanno vinto gli “European Songwriting Awards”, 10 premi ai “German Rock & Pop Awards” e a dozzine di concorsi internazionali, oltre ad intraprendere un’attività concertistica esibendosi insieme sul palco, riscuotendo un notevole successo anche dalla critica musicale.
On his fourth album, "Change of Rules," Luca developed other ideas to improve his guitars, such as the "Guitar Ring" and the "Reversed Slide Neck," an innovative removable guitar neck that has received incredible acclaim and even the highly appreciated praise of "New Atlas," one of the most well-known and widely followed science and technology publications in the world.
Throughout his career he has had the opportunity to share the stage with Grammy Award finalists and winners such as Jim "Kimo" West, Linda Briceño, Debashish Bhattacharya and many other immensely talented artists. Luca recently founded his own music label and he is a loyal group leader of "International Guitar Night."
