I cultivate my passion for singing through study and work as a professional soul singer. I'm among the founders of an independent band called urbanSoul.

The urbanSoul Project. Two singers, the classical rock quartet, alto sax and a wide use of analog synthetizers are the source of urbanSoul's live sound.

The two voices are involved together to create complex harmonies; the quartet's job, together with the alto sax, is to funk the house; a non-trivial set of cuts and loops, sometimes coupled with live percussion, completes a wide spectrum of sounds which faces every day the challenge to mix harmonic research with physical movement, dance with melodies.
