ANDREA BIGNASCA (CH)
MANAGEMENT / PRESS / BOOKING
Andrea Bignasca was born and raised in the south of Switzerland, near Lugano. The approach to music came early on, when at the age of 7 he started taking drums lessons. At the age of 17, after 10 years of drumming, he vacated his drum stool, put aside his drum sticks, took a few steps to the front of the stage, dedicating himself to guitar playing and singing as an autodidact.
Raised bilingually in an Italian- and German-speaking environment, Andrea Bignasca writes and sings in English, being convinced that the music demands it. He finished working on his first studio album (Gone, 2015), having secured, amongst many, collaborations with Omar Hakim (drummer), Phill Brown (mixing engineer) and Dave Collins (mastering engineer).
‘Murder’, the second studio album of Swiss artist Andrea Bignasca, released on September 21st 2018. The singer and multi-instrumentalist is well versed in his dynamic mix of blues rock, self-confident singer/songwriter and energetic southern rock. After successful and extended tours and festival shows such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Estival Jazz or supporting shows for, among others, Gregory Porter, Morcheeba and Everlast, in 2018 Bignasca gives his highly- acclaimed debut album ‘Gone’ a promising and worthy successor.
