Simone Massaron was born in Milan (Italy) in 1971. When he was four years old started learning piano with his father Sergio, who was orchestra director. In his first fifteen years practises different instruments (piano, guitar, drums) playing in different local bands among the many in his neighbourhood, thus creating the background of a poly-instrumental talent that will enable him, later on, to spread his musical views. At sixteen he focuses on guitar and goes abroad playing gigs through Europe with a rock local band. The following years are then dedicated to jazz only, attending to classes with Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Mick Goodrick, Marc Ducret e John Scofield. His eclectic way of relating to guitar puts him through the smashing musicians in Longsong Records. That is the label, in Milan, of his first recording "Breaking News", together with his hero Elliott Sharp, and it will give him also the opportuninity to mix his guitars with Nels Cline, Marc Ribot and to perform different recordings. His style on the instrument shows all of his eclecticism and his pleasure in crossing over genres, such as radical improvisation, avant-garde free music, looping and live electronics but also original blues, live sountracks on silent movies, 60´s lounge, sound painting on to contemporary. All that is possible thanks to the great instrumental technique which allows him wandering in unknown guitar repertoire areas. Simone Massaron is one of the best fretless-guitar player in Italy and he attended to the 2006 "Fretless Guitar Festival" edition in New York. "Dandelions on Fire", second recording by his name for Longsong Records in 2008, featuring Carla Bozulich, meets critical acclaim and it is voted one of best recording of the year by many music magazines. In the summer he also performs live with Marc Ribot as a duo. Since 2008 he´s a member of "El Gallo Rojo", musicians´ collective. Musicians he has been playing with are Marc Ribot, Elliott Sharp, Nels Cline, Carla Bozulich, Tiziana Ghiglioni, Steve Piccolo, Gak Sato,Xabier Iriondo, Giovanni Maier, Tiziano by theTononi, Daniele Cavallanti, Jenny Scheinman, Zeno de Rossi, Massimo Pupillo, Giorgio Pacorig, Alfonso Santimone, Emanuele Parrini, Piero Bittolo Bon, Carlo Garofalo, Achille Succi, Carlo Virzi, Craig Green, Scott Amendola.
