Osvaldo Lo Iacono is a Sicilian professional guitarist, who trained himself in his youth on records by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Albert Collins, etc. that the father guarded with passion. Growing up he then discovered the vast world of Jazz, starting with the masterpieces of Miles Davis, and thus began to build his own style that still today encompasses his main influences, a personal style therefore imbued with Blues, Jazz, Funk and Rock.
Throughout his career, there have been both solo projects such as the Osvaldo Lo Iacono Trio and, of course, his work alongside numerous well-known names in music: Amii Stewart, Antonella Ruggiero, Mario Biondi, Orchestra Jazz Siciliana Brass Group, Billy Cobham, Fabrizio Bosso, Fabio Concato, Mauro Ermanno Giovanardi, Deborah Iurato, Mariella Nava, Fiordaliso and others.
