I had the urge to say ‘move over Tommy Emmanuel’ but that would make me a dick. The focus is Andrea here whom I stumbled into via Twitter. Breadcrumbs followed and by the time I’d checked out his MySpace page, listened to some music and watched his videos…
…I was blown away. This 17-year old, self-taught, guitar player commands the instrument like a bullfighter. So I contacted him and proposed that he take my interview questions and produce a sort of video letter talking about his life, music, style etc. A couple of weeks later, the following two videos streamed over. What’s evident in this whole process of him arranging and producing this video letter, while recording and touring, is his love of the guitar and the great ball of energy & enthusiasm he has about music.
It’s my pleasure to introduce Andrea Valeri to you.
