Marco Piccioni is a Blues Rock & Jazz guitarist and singer based in London, UK. He has worked as a side man and a leader since 2003, starting his career in New York, where he moved to after graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Born in 1976 in Turin, he spent his teens studying at the ‘Liceo Classico’ and at the same time being a professional sports-man in slalom canoeing. After the graduation in 1995 he decided to explore music more deeply starting to play guitar. He first studied with Italian guitarist Franco ‘Slep’ Sciancalepore, then in 1999 he moved to America, to attend the Berklee College Of Music where he graduated in 2002. In that period he was fortunate enough to study with master guitarists and composers Julien Kasper, Jon Damian and Michael Williams. In 2003 he moved from Boston to New York where he performed with many different artists. That same year he decided to move back to Italy where he established his own Quartet which with he recorded his first solo album Waterflight, published by DDE-Records. In 2006 he moved to London, UK. Since then he has collaborated with various artists, including Julia Biel, Cleveland Watkiss, Lekan Babalola & Kate Luxmoore, Joe Lewis. Parallel to leading his Trio with Blendi Dhami and Chris Nickolls, Marco is also part of the Modal Contemporary band Collocutor and the Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra. Marco is an established music teacher, guitar tutor and lecturer. He is the course leader for the Artist Development Programme at the British Academy of new Music in London. Marco is a dedicated free diver. Exploring the connection with Water and the noble art of Apnea are precious sources of inspiration and development.

Amazing performance by Marco during our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail reception. Marco was extremely professional and his performance was great! We had so many compliments from our guests who enjoyed his music and we look forward to hearing him again at one of his shows in London! His set list of Blues guitar solos set a great tone to our Wedding and we are very thankful!
