Born and raised in Detroit Mi, Sergio Gaetani brings a unique perspective to modern indie rock, song writing and Detroit rock and roll.
Sergio’s father, an Italian farmer who immigrated to the US as a teenager and his mother, an American school teacher, created a household that deeply embraced music, wine and the love of life. Classic rock, Motown and classic Italian singers such as Carlo Butti and Paolo Conte could be regularly heard in the household. Sergio’s songwriting is simple, encourages love, dreams and is tied together by Sergio’s embrace of the classic sound of the Fender Jaguar. Sergio has performed as a sideman for some of Detroit’s best talent over the last 15 years and is now breaking out on his own.
While Sergio’s sound is somewhere in-between the War on Drugs and Tom Waits, he is heavily influenced by The Beach Boys, MuteMath, David Bowie, Radiohead, Wilco, Jimi Hendrix, Paolo Conte, and The Wood Brothers.
