Born and raised on the beaches of Long Island, New York the foundation of the now Arizona-based songwriter's sound derives from the surf music scene of his formative years on the East Coast.
Shortly after picking up the guitar in high school on a bet from a friend, Riccardo discovered the acoustically driven melodies of artists like Jack Johnson, John Butler Trio, and Ben Harper. These musicians, along with classic troubadours from his father's record collection, like James Taylor, would serve as the initial inspiration for writing his own songs.
Following a post-college musical hiatus, Riccardo moved from NYC to Arizona and, encouraged by his wife, started to take songwriting seriously for the first time. Since 2017, Riccardo has released six full-length albums, several EPs and a handful of remixes. His most recent full-length album, Light the Atlantic, is yet another self-recorded, self-engineered and self-produced project. The LP wraps up an initially unplanned trilogy of albums recorded and released in "quarantine" during the 2020 pandemic.
Light the Atlantic marks a return to Riccardo's roots as an acoustically driven artist with lyrics inspired by the ocean and the endless journey into the unknown.
