FJD is a composer and a music producer.
He worked with DJS From Mars, Fabio Trentini, The Last Fight and in many other projects.
FJD started his love affair with songwriting, recording and performance at an early age. Rehearsals with his first band took place in his grandmother’s cellar – a subterranean world of thick walls and exciting potential – an ideal space to experiment and invent.
He started recording local bands in 2008 while attending both the University of Sound Engineering at the Politecnico in Milan and the Conservatory in Como. After his degree, FJD attended two Masters courses of Music Production in Rome to enrich his experience with the latest technologies and trends. He played in 2 bands at the time – both produced by Fabio Trentini: getting to know Fabio led to FJD adding ‘become a producer’ to his job list.
FJD’s songs are informed by the desire to communicate and to entertain; to tell fascinating stories. He mixes the hopeful and the positive with the leavening of introspection and exploration; the conscious with the subconscious. This is storytelling that is rhythmically driven, too – especially by his collaboration with the energies and influences of different musicians who have come together to enhance and augment the production team.
In terms of production and songwriting, FJD is blending folk, rock and electronica into a mix that can (and should) be filed alongside Tame Impala, Radiohead, Billie Eilish and Twenty One Pilots.
