Federico started taking classical guitar lessons at age 9. In his teens he branched off into folk, rock and jazz before putting his guitar down for about ten years. In his late 20’s while living in Spain, he read a biography of Woody Guthrie and began listening to artists like J. J. Cale, John Hiatt, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Dylan. After performing throughout Europe for one year, he returned to Boston where he continued writing and performing. In 2008 he released Waiting For A Friend which placed on several Americana and Roots radio charts both in the USA and in Europe. In early 2018 Federico began writing new material and formed a band, The Breeze. He currently performs solo and with The Breeze in and around New England.
