“When it comes to crazy guitar skills Luca Stricagnoli is one of the absolute best” NME
Luca is currently working on new releases in which he explores even more approaches to guitar playing and debuts a new guitar that he created with Davide Serracini, all while discovering what the custom instrument has to offer the world of music. The album tour, featuring special guest Meg Pfeiffer, will cross over ten countries in Europe, Asia, North America and South America.
“Every so often, a musician emerges who, in terms of depth of expression, advances a style so much that the way we listen changes forever. In rock, Derek Trucks comes to mind as an example. Italian guitarist Luca Stricagnoli embodies such a shift. He employs right-hand fretting, altered tunings, and partial capos in the spirit of Preston Reed and Kaki King, yet, like Trucks, he’s playing at a higher level.”
“Luca Stricagnoli is one of the most exciting new players on the acoustic guitar scene. He bypasses the normal limits of the acoustic guitar and adapts it to any musical genre: from pop to rock, from soundtracks to original pieces.”
“Luca Stricagnoli is a young Italian talent, fresh from viral internet video success. Wild and daring even before millions of people who listened to his incredible pieces associated his name with his face. His fame reminds us of Italian artists spread throughout the world, a real brain drain. As if a a brain, conscious of it’s power, needs to run away. It’s more like he decided to go out and reap what he sowed.”
