Luca Stricagnoli
Luca Stricagnoli, born and raised in Italy, is an acoustic guitarist known for his unique style and innovative playing techniques. His original approach to music has led him to a variety of successes from obtaining over 60 million views on his music videos to having the opportunity to perform all around the globe.

His debut single received over 14 million hits on YouTube and Facebook in just a couple of weeks  an especially impressive feat for an instrumental music video.

Using up to five guitars in the same piece, modified capos, and self-conceived stratagems, Luca continually leaves his audiences in awe and wondering whats next for the up-and-coming guitarist. In addition to his musical abilities, Luca brings an enthusiastic energy to the stage that attracts concert requests from every corner of the world.

Although it has only been a year and a half since Luca started playing concerts, he has already performed in a vast multitude of countries.

In Italy, Luca played at the Dopofestival in Sanremo, after an invitation from Italian composer Vittorio Cosma. He was even deemed a phenomenon by the well-known Gialappas Band. Luca has also performed for the main national TV and Radio in his current residing-place of Germany, such as RTL, SWR1 and SWR4.

Luca shared the stage with several big names of the acoustic guitar world during the International Guitar Night tour. These names included the founder of the Latin-Swing style Lulo Reinhardt, grammy-nominated musician and inventor of the Slide Guitar Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya, and Brazilian guitarist and composer Chrystian Dozza. He has also been a guest artist for Italian musical legends such as New Trolls  La Storia and Davide Van De Sfroos.

Throughout his career, Lucas music has been published by countless magazines and has grabbed the attention of world-famous artists such as the band Walk Off The Earth. The band even published Lucas work on their Facebook page, obtaining more than eight million views on a single video.

Luca is currently working on a new release 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, hes playing at a higher level.
