After training as a bass player in Italy and performing with a vast array of bands like new wave group The Shades of Gray, traditional Italian folk ensemble Giancarlo Corrente’s Orchestra and experimental techno-jazz trio The Spacecakes, Jacopo picks up a battered classical guitar at the turn of the millennium and begins writing his own music.
In the summer of 2005 he decides to walk the Camino De Santiago, a profound and changing experience that eventually leads him to move to the United States in 2006.
Landed in San Francisco he collaborates with numerous local musicians, performs solo, forms a band and releases his first album “Mai Come Ora” (2009). In addition to his live performances and songwriting, Jacopo designs sound for various art projects including actress/director Marilee Talkington’s theatrical sound piece titled “The Wormhole” and independent video artist Amy Hicks’ films.
In 2010 he relocates to the East Coast where he records his second CD “Torn in The USA“, performs live in the Wilmington / Philadelphia area, forms a new band “The Established” (with Joshua Ramey on drums and Andrew Nelson on bass) and produces a few albums in collaboration with fellow musicians.
In late 2012 he releases the EP “Oceano senziente“, a detour from the previous style that combines traditionally arranged songs with an EDM rhythmic canvas.
In early 2013 Jacopo founds the new project The Late Saints, a Philadelphia-based gypsy rock trio with Micah Hebbel on Drums and Jason Bachman on Bass. Intended as an expansion of his solo music, The Late Saints gain immediate momentum for their originality and great energy of their live performances.
In Fall 2015 the band releases their long-awaited first album “Presto! In America“, and features a new line-up with Mike Huff on bass, Tim Leslie on Percussion and additional brass section with Nick Lombardelli (trombone) and Alex Wolfe (trumpet).
In 2016 The Late Saints tour the East Coast, receive an award as “Best Band” at WSTW Hometown Heroes and play Festivals in the Summer. In the Fall, Jacopo goes on Tour in Europe with Folk/punk singer songwriter James ‘Bar’ Bowen and in December releases his first solo single “Syrian Girl” .
