He formed his journey through the masterful minds of painters like Salvador Dali, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, and the exquisite sound of The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Queen, The Who and the classic masters Van Beethoven and Mozart, from whom he took inspiration. He became an audio-visual driven youngster, passionate for expression and instinctual promulgation. After some years of perceptive motivation, DEFANICO declared himself as an artist as well and began developing his own creative mind as a musician. He began writing for piano at a young age, oscillating his composition from classical, all the way to rock and blues.
Consequently, as the years went by and the 90’s were rapidly fading away, DEFANICO stepped down from (without forgetting) the guidance of rock with Guns n’ Roses and INXS and entered the world of modern pop and the newly found alternative like Radiohead. By that time, DEFANICO’s interest in new music led him to experiment with his composition. He began his preparation adjourning self-taught education and enlisted Fermatta Music Academy to liberate his professional need for a more sober career as a musician. He attended the academy for four years and fulfilled a Masters Degree in Piano and Composition with a minor in Media and Technology apart from the academy. DEFANICO formed a Brit Pop band while in college named Frederic Pope lasting almost five years. It structured the way he approached the stage and taught him to stand for his own expressive capabilities as a performer. In 2007 he began his solo project as DEFANICO with a more accurate vision of his aptitudes and artistry.
He joined forces with his childhood friend and producer Alejandro De la Parra Solomon (BLY) to come up with a stunning concept and hit mass media. DEFANICO swings through Electronic, Alternative and Rock Pop. The upcoming debut album entitled "Rise of the Cosmos" is a promising album with fresh new sounds and sweet textures.
