Italian bassist Paolo Succo's musical career began at the age of 17 when he discovered the music which would become his life's passion.

He started playing quite a bit in pubs and clubs in and around Turin (IT) from 1993 to 2006. On the 1st June 1992, he took his first music course with the bass teacher Roberto Piccolo.

Between 1992 and 1994 he collaborated with local bands and in 1993 he was working as sound engineering at the Camelot Music Studio. The musician joined his first serious band called Evasione Parallela in 1994. Since then he also started extensive studio work collaborating with several rock bands.

In 1995 he stopped his music lessons with Roberto Piccolo to take lessons with Roberto Celio until mid 1998 and from 2000 for just few months with Massimo Camarca. Roberto Celio and Massimo Camarca are very well known session bass players in Italy and with their help and by attending big bass players' seminars like Steve Bailey he improved consistently his technique. The biggest improvements on the bass have been achieved with the help of Roberto Celio, who focused the study programme on the session bass player career. Peorth (Paolo Succo) also took a few months piano course in 2001 with Nino La Piana to improve his harmonic theory and analysis. In 1998 he was introduced to Gianfranco Marzano by Roberto Celio, a rock drummer in the Turin scene. Following the meeting with Gianfranco and the cooperation with the well known guitarist Massimo Bindi, a project called Route 66 was born and the band was soon playing in and out the town being particularly successful amongst rockers.

While playing with Gianfranco he was introduced to some outstanding young musicians, co-students and well established professional musicians like Giustino Barletta, Piero D'Agostino and later Gianfabio Cappello.

In 2001 he collaborated with Piero D'Agostino and other few musicians in several projects from blues to standards jazz-latin songs and he got the opportunity to jam with Banzai (Salvatore Larocca). Thanks to Gianfranco he also started teaching at the AMM, Modern Music Academy, in 2002. The same year he joined a pop-rock band called Frame and he played with them until 2005 when the band split up. The Frame project was very interesting and with musicians like Giustino Barletta and later Alex Cordero (keyboards), Luca Vassallo (drum) and Marco Valenzano (guitar) soon reached a fair success in the town pubs and festivals. Frame won a prize as best pop-rock band in 2005.

In 2003 Peorth achieved a big goal in music, he joined his first professional electric orchestral called Magma that was seeing Gianfabio Cappello as a drummer. With Magma, Peorth played for the first time abroad especially in France and Switzerland and all across Italy. From 2003 he was very busy with an extensive live work, over one hundred gigs per year for the following 3 years. The same year he got a parallel cooperation with the Travelling Band, a tribute band of CCR - Creedence Clearwater Revival.

But the very big opportunity knocked in 2004 when he met Luca Frencia and he joined The Luca Frencia Orchestral. Peorth found himself in the company of like-minded musicians who could appreciate the good music as well as looking ahead to the future. He extensively performed with Magma and Luca Frencia Orchestras, Frame, The Travelling Band and occasionally with the FVG (Forza Venite Gente) musical. The FVG was a charity musical engaging almost 50 people as musicians, dancers and actors and performed at the Piccolo Regio Theatre in Turin.

In 2005 Peorth cooperated with the Big Mama Band, a 70s and 80s disco music band in Turin and the Hearth 'n Blood, a well known rock band and with both of them he did some studio and live works. At the end of 2005 he has a short cooperation with the gothic band Ordeal by Fire. Peorth moved to London in March 2006 and for personal reasons he stopped playing bass for few years, in spite he did a few studio works with Greg X, a Polish neo-classical guitarist and few English bands.

In 2008 he started playing again with some self-taught studies and at the beginning of 2010 he joined the multi-instrumentalist musician and his live band, Andrea Ianni. In 2010 the Andrea Ianni's live project developed rapidly and the trio is currently performing live in London with a heavy rock-funky bass sound.

Since then, he is actively involved in the music industry collaborating with many bands and running his own new project.
Peorth also start teaching privately as he was used to do before moving to London
