Davide Gullotto was born on May 22, 1975 in Cernusco sul Naviglio, a town of the Metropolitan City of Milan, Lombardy, north-western Italy.
His childhood was surrounded by musical instruments and teachings, thanks to his father Antonio's music school. At 5 he loved Rossini's Ouvertures, at 9 he wrote small piano pieces and at 11 he was a student at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Music in Milan.
As a teenager he was inspired by the music and energy of Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Sting and other British and American artists, then began writing songs and then playing in early bands, dreaming of becoming a rock star. So he suspended his classical studies and made some trips to London to set foot in the country of rock, convinced that he could break through with his songs.
A few years later he began working in various recording studios in Milan for numerous musical productions, mainly pop and instrumental, also learning the art of sound engineering. The recording studio environment was like a second home and in the 1990s he spent his time writing and producing music, both for himself and for many independent artists and record labels.
The new Millennium
With the new Millennium he started gigging round rock venues like The Indian's Saloon, LegendClub, Scimmie in Milan with various musicians and bands, recording his songs in studio and making his way, but at the same time, he resumed classical piano studies at the Conservatory of Music.
