About this artist

Guitarist, composer, singer, producer.

"My idea of music is oriented to the future. If I had to define my musical genre I keep saying that it is a crossover, or contamination, a fusion between apparently distant cultures but that if they come together they can give life to something new (basically all life is research)."
After years of concerts, publications, and collaborations, Marco Pernice produces electro, funk music, with rock / blues contaminations. It is his new dimension: songs like DJ KILLER, THE ELECTRIC POPE, ALIEN, MR PRESIDENT, FUNK U (REMIX), MY MIND, NO FUNKY DOWN, GEMINI, are now hits in the international indie radio circuit, and entered various official indie rankings such as "Radio Indie Alliance", "Earone", " Classifica Indie (Italy)", "Euro Indie Music Chart ", "ITunes", "Amazon", "Ethnocloud.com" as well as rankings of individual stations.

He grew up musically listening great musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Vernon Reid and people like that, working as a radio speaker and guitar teacher. In 2005 he followed an internship with the American guitarist Mike Stern (among the many collaborations: Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorious, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Dave Weckl)

He began his musical career in Italy between bands, concerts, festivals and record productions in the early 90's. Over the years he played in prestigious Italian festivals such as Time Zones, Taranta Power, Bari Jazz Festival, Summer Festivals, etc ... in artistic programs that included artists such as Lou Reed, John Cale, Popol Whu, Uri Caine. Just as there were numerous radio passages on local and national FM radios and web radios, reviews in local and national newspapers, magazines and on TV.
