ABOUT

Born in August 1982, in La Spezia (Italy), Federico Accardo started attending guitar lessons from local teachers at the age of 17, beginning with classical guitar, then switching in a few months to electric guitar, that became his main instrument.
He played with bands from his city, performing live on various pubs, restaurants and clubs.

At the age of 21 he decided to attend, Lizard Accademie musical institute.The following year, he succeeded in completing his studies and got the 3rd year certification with full marks and honour.

In July 2004 he was asked to collaborate with "Lizard Academie" to record 2 songs for the "How Our Electric Guitar Can Play" album. He recorded, mixed and mastered the songs ("Always with me, always with you" and "Echo" by Joe Satriani) all by himself, in his home studio.

In 2005 he was asked to join a band which was about to come out with its 2nd album. The band was called “Shining Fury” and had heavy power metal influences. The project kept him busy writing, recording and playing live for almost a year.
The album was released in January 2006 with the title "Another Life" (Metal Blade Records).

Over the following few years he worked as a private guitar teacher, and performed live with local bands and with acoustic duos playing rock, funk, pop, soul and blues music.

In March 2013 he decided to move to London to widen his musical horizons and to take his work as a musician to a higher level.

Very quickly he started several collaborations with various singers and bands , playing on acoustic sets and with a full band performing in venues and clubs like “Mark Masons Hall”, “The Troubadour Cafe”, “Grappolo Restaurant”, “The Alleycat”, “The Fiddler's Elbow”, “The Comedy Pub”, “Bar Vynil”, “Hilton London Syon Park”, just to name a few...
He also worked for the EAT Company as a session musician for live music exibitions in shops situated in the city centre (Old Street, Liverpool Street, Euston, Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus etc.).
