“I consider 10 years and 3 albums with Pipers a strong training ground: we had a
brilliant time playing alongside some of the artists we’ve been loving since our first
approach to music. I perfectly remember when I used to play music and work as
postman at the same time: on Friday morning I was delivering letters and a few hours
later I was flying to Northampton to perform before Turin Brakes!
It was a courageous time of life, made of passionate choices like flying to
Wolverhampton and record Pipers 2
nd album with the famous producer Gavin
Monaghan... I used all this stuff to focus on what I ever wanted to do in life.”
