Born in Australia by two migrant parents, a German mother and Italian father, made Gian a juxtaposition from the start.
His love affair with music started very early in his life through his father’s world music record collection and mother’s obsession with gospel and soul all whilst growing up in the MTV generation of Michael Jackson and Prince, this eclectic mix of musical genres shaped Gian’s future musical direction and unique artistry that was to become.
Perhaps it has been his strikingly unusual combination of sound, style and appearance of soul fuelled pop vocals streaked with virtuosic spanish influenced guitar playing and exotic qualities and charisma that has made him stand out and share the stage with legendary artists Sheila E, Grammy nominated songwriter and producer Paul Pederson (Prince, The Corrs, George Benson), Ricky Pederson (John Mayer, George Benson), blues legend Eric Bibb and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe and Australian music legend Marcia Hines in their latest music video 'Remedy'.
Gian distinctive sound and style has seen him play not only with other incredible artists but also given him his reputation as a live performer.
