Francesco Gabbani is an Italian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born in Carrara. He began his artistic career as a musician playing blues, funk and jazz. At eighteen he signed his first record deal and recorded his first album with the group Trikobalto. The video clips of the two singles from this album were played on the main musical television broadcasters and allow Trikobalto to perform in the main Italian festivals. In 2010, Trikobalto  released their second album. A tour in France followed. Trikobaldo opened for Stereophonics. In the same year Gabbani left the band and signed a new record deal for the realization of his first solo project. In 2011 Gabbani released four singles. In 2014 he released his first solo studio album, “Greitist Iz”. In 2016 he presented himself in Sanremo Giovani with the song “Amen”. He won the Nuove proposti trophy. In the months following the victory, his song became a commercial success, reaching the fourteenth position in the charts and receiving a gold disc for it and later even a platinum disc. The single was also added to Gabbani’s second studio album “Eternamente ora”. Then he began a promotional tour and opened concerts for national and international artists such as Franco Battiato, Francesco Renga, Simply Red and Anastacia. Later Gabbani wrote the soundtrack of the film “Poveri ma ricchi”. In the same year he worked as an author for other interpreters. In 2017 he participated at the festival of San Remo again, now in the Sezione Big. His song “Occidentali’s karma” won the festival. The single Occionali’s Karma, was a great commercial success both in Italy – where it reached and maintained the first position of the charts for three consecutive weeks – and in the rest of Europe. He participated in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with the song, being one of the favourites to win it. In the end, he became 6th. Soon after the contest, a new album “Magellano” was released.
