BIOGRAPHY

Matteo Gattei Live


Born on February 24th 1973 in Omegna (VB) - ITALY, he approaches music around the age of 4 when he receives the first musical instrument: a little keyboard not much more than a toy.
Thanks to the vast musical culture of his father with his extensive music library, he is lucky to grow in a very comfortable environment to develop his own musical attitudes, listening to real and varied music: from Bach to the Beatles.
Supported by his parents' enthusiasm, he began playing guitar at the age of 16 starting as self-taught, but after graduating in computer science at the high school, he enrolled to C.P.M. Music Academy in Milan where he finally graduated as guitarist with Diploma in 1996.

Studio

The first experience in a real recording studio dates back to 1992 with the recording of a cover EP with the band "Oceania".
