Daniele Spadavecchia was born in Italy where he studied classical and jazz guitar and where he performed for 15 years before moving to New Orleans.
When Hurricane Katrina hit, being displaced became an opportunity to perform around the country from San Diego to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Antonio, Washington D.C. and many other places before returning to the Crescent City, then moving to the beautiful city of Santa Fe, and finally settling in the Mediterranean region of Languedoc, France.
During the 25 years of his musical career, he has refined a sophisticated style with a captivating voice mixing smooth crooning in Italian, English and Spanish and Gypsy Jazz guitar a la Django Reinhardt .
