Andrea Valeri.jpg Andrea has been on the road playing professionally since he was sixteen and obtained a lot of success in both Italy and in Europe performing at many renowned acoustic guitar festivals throughout Europe.

Andrea studied guitar from the age of ten, first learning the classical, later learning electric, and finally perfecting mixed playing techniques on the acoustic guitar. At the age of fourteen, he started to learn varied techniques like Thumb style, Finger style, Fingerpicking, Flatpicking and more, finding definitively his way in the guitar world.
When he was sixteen Andrea started his career playing professionally throughout Europe in three separate tours.
At the age of eighteen, Andrea had developed a unique blend of highly mastered guitar skills, and produced three Albums: The secret of Silence (2007), The Trip (2008), Maybe (2010). His albums consist of music he has composed himself, along with many classics to which he has added his unique, variant, sophisticated guitar techniques.

Andrea may only be 21 years of age, but already performs & is sought to perform at festivals with numerous world acclaimed guitar masters (who are also his idols): Don Ross, Thomas Leeb, Michael Fix, the Doc Sound Acoustic Trio, Eric Lugosh, Mickey Murphy, Eric Spitzler-Marlyn and many more.

He is defined by all categories of musicians he meets as a "rising star".

His collaborations are also with Goran Kuzminac (in Parole Semplici, one of the most successful song of the Goran's last CD Dio suona la chitarra) and with the IGS Company, who helped him to record and publish his first song 'Rails'.

In his new work, 'Maybe', Andrea presents new songs, many arrangements in a co-operation with Michael Fix (one of the most important acoustic guitarist) in Cannonball Rag.
