Al Cattaneo / Bio

Songwriter, composer, singer and live performer. Practically born with the passion for music, I always found a perfect combination of happiness, fun, inner calm and joy in listening to, writing and composing, buying, downloading, sharing, talking about, playing live...music.
For me, it's one of those things that never abandon your life, no matter how many changes you can go, or have to go through.

At the age of 6 my parents bought me a guitar. Big mistake folks.
At 8 (we're talking about music cassettes era) I was recording my first song, with drums made of frying pans, a crappy guitar, grammatically incorrect English lyrics and a microphone-toy to record the whole session. All dressed up like Michael Jackson, just to give you the picture. My parents realized their mistake.
I started my first rock band around the age of 15, with my best buddy. Well, it was pretty much jsut me and him.
Our first demo came at the age of 16. Let's leave it at that (and you'll never get an mp3).
After that, within the next few years, I performed live, composed, wrote and recorded several songs and demos with different bands. It got better with the years, when I realized that a couple of guitar and singing classes wouldn't have hurt.

Nowadays, I find myself traveling around the globe for work, being overwhelmed by new experiences, places, people. Anywhere I go, anywhere I live, whoever I meet or whatever I do, inspire such deep emotions and feelings that the only way I can somehow express them is through music; as I did since I was 8. Somehow, I feel the need to express, record, listen to and share these emotions. What better way of music? (I know many other ways but that's not the point here!)

So here I am, sharing my music with you; sharing my thoughts, my feelings, my passion. Technically I don't play in bands anymore due to my vagabond working life, but wherever I am, I always set up a micro-recording-studio at home with all the crappiest instruments I own or I can find (all crappy besides my beloved Les Paul Custom '79).

Enough said, enough people bored. Go check out my songs, hope you'll enjoy, and please share them around!
