Bio for Press
Italian born, Philadelphia based, singer songwriter Jacopo De Nicola mixes Old and New World influences into a sophisticated sonic cocktail. Expanding the tradition of the Italian Cantautori, Jacopo enlivens the audience with infectious upbeat tunes as well as introspective ballads and protest songs. His eclectic repertoire is propelled by a rhythmic Gypsy/World pulse and punctuated by virtuosic kazoo melodies that have become a signature of his live performances. De Nicola performs internationally as a solo artist and with his gypsy-rock band The Late Saints.
