In Gio’s own words

Ciao everybody and welcome to my site. My name is Giovanni, but you can call me Gio.
I was about 10 when I fell in love with music, a guitar was available at home, my father knew how to play few songs. Later on my sister took few guitar lessons, but somehow that guitar ended in my hands, and the love story that has changed my life begun.

This incredible journey has brought me around the world, has given me the chance to meet, play and interact with many talented artists across the continents. It has enriched me with an incredible life experience that made understand what really identifies the essences of a person, that element, is unmistakably the “soul”.

Some people call it talent, some people sees it as a mission, nobody really know what it determines someone choice to become a musician. Perhaps a combination of all of the above factors is the right balance since, no matter what, you’ll committed to a life time of practice. The factor that determined my choice to become a musician was, as they call it, the “vision”.  When I listened to music my soul vibrated, it made all sense, I was taken for a lifetime journey, I knew it, that’s my story.

This has become  my way of living with the clear understanding that, the ultimate goal, is to give back. I’m very grateful for the musical talent I’ve received, I’m appreciative for the love and support I receive from my aficionados, all of this wouldn’t be possible without you. With that in mind, please consider helping future’s artists, you could significantly contribute to the upbringing of talented youngsters, your help will make the difference, for everything else…..I’m just one click away

Truly yours,
Gio Lombardi
