Marco Ragni

Marco Ragni's musical history dates back to 1975, when, at the age of 6, he discovers his passion for music by asking for a Farfisa keyboard as present. The love of singing comes only later, fascinated by the vocal harmonies of the Fab Four, the legendary Beatles. At the age of 17, attracted by the California hippie scene of the late sixties, he recorded his first tracks of psychedelic music, and his early records, including "Kaleido"(1987) and "Illumination"(1988).
In 1990 he joined the band Deshuesada, which will deeply mark his artistic evolution, leading to  the recording of 2 albums of psychedelic pop and to several gigs in Italy from 1992 to 1998. After a couple of years as a soloist, albeit without significant productions, in 2000 he was approached by a rock band, the Quartafila, which later changed its name to Heza. Three studio albums, a recording contract with the Red LED in Milan and many gigs, resulted in a significant leap in quality- From 2007 to the end of 2008 he plays with the Mokers, a funk psychedelic rock band and he records an EP called "Don't forget the music". In January 2009 he decided to officially launch his solo career, having gained sufficient experience in both music composition and singing. He dove into the study of new recording techniques and honed in his artistic skills. After having composed about a hundred songs, he decided to found a record label conveying all his musical ideas. In late summer of 2009, Crow Records, his independent label, was born and in the spring of 2010 he released his first solo album "In my eyes". Tireless and visionary, 4 months after the release of the album, he begins to work on a new album titled "1969" released in the fall of 2011. In the meantime a live album "Marco Ragni Live at the House of Thunder" comes out in August 2010, performed with his band called Velvet Cactus. In the summer of 2012 he released a new psychedelic album called "Lilac days".A new live project called "Think outside the box" is keeping him busy for most of the current year, including the creation of its first rock opera entitled "Oddentity", which will be released in the winter 2013...

Stay tuned, the journey continue!
