PEPPINO D'AGOSTINO has earned a place on the short list of the world's very best acoustic guitarists. A true creative genius blessed with dazzling technical ability. Peppino's original compositions are introduced to international audiences by an artist of rare charisma.
Peppino is regularly featured in guitar magazines such as Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine and Chitarre (Italy). As the Anchorage Daily news wrote, "In addition to being a total scholar and master of the acoustic solo guitar, Peppino is also an astonishing entertainer."
"Obsessed" with the guitar since he heard his cousin play in his native Italy when he was a boy, Peppino is among the most versatile guitarists on the scene today, fusing many styles and cultures into his own.
As well as composing and recording for games produced by EA, Peppino has collaborated on breakthrough CDs with classical guitar master David Tanenbaum creating Classic/Steel and with Huey Lewis and the News electric guitarist, Stef Burns on Bayshore Road.
