ABOUT

Alessio is a singer, guitarist, vocal coach, performer, composer and songwriter born in Italy and based in Nottingham (UK), member of the Musician's Union since August 2018

At a young age, he discovered that he breathes more music than air and he learned how to play different instruments, forming his first band at 13 years old playing drums.

Since his teenage years, he studies vocals and electric guitar, experimenting a wide variety of genres, vibes, and sounds. Through the years, he performed in a notable number of venues and events, from the smallest pubs of his hometown to some important live clubs of Italy, presenting to his audience many different projects (cover bands, tribute acts, original music and collaborations).

In his twenties, he also discovered his love for teaching, giving vocals and guitar lessons to young students.

During his career, he often had the pleasure of collaborating with famous international musicians such as Will Hunt (Evanescence, Black Label Society, Motley Crue), John Macaluso (Yngwie Malmsteen, James LaBrie, Symphony X), Stef Burns (Alice Cooper, Huey Lewis & The News) and Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani)

Currently, he’s writing, arranging, recording and producing his first soloist project, a mix of dark-electronic and hard rock using the artistic name Alez D.

He started his guitar and vocal studies mentored by professional private Italian teachers. In 2015 he achieved an Electric Guitar three years diploma at the PercentoMusica Music Academy in Rome (Italy) and he recently completed his BMus Degree in Music Industry Practice – Contemporary vocal studies at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford (UK).
