Andrea Quintarelli

About

Andrea created his own style travelling around the word, blending Latin soul with Balkan and Oriental melodies.

His brilliant improvisation, fast picking, gypsy feeling and his rich musical international vocabulary, made him a true artist who expresses his musical creativity through his beautiful compositions.

Born in Rome, Andrea commenced his musical career at the age of 12. He started his career playing in Italian clubs and festivals. After that he toured for two years with Frankenstein the Musical. In the last years in Italy he played and composed music for television whilst continuing to perform live all around Italy with different musicians, including Jon Bon Jovi.

After moving to London in 2000, Andrea has performed in British and worldwide venues as a soloist and band leader.

Offering clients a range of styles and genres Andrea shines brightest when working with his loop pedal; covering Jazz and Pop standards, creating beautiful sound-scapes and performing his own compositions.
