Daniel Sigismondi, aka Siggi.
Italian singer songwriter multi-instrumentalist made the journey to Toronto in 2014 to find his place in the music scene.
Music always came as a feeling to Siggi as he started appreciating its beauty and understanding the creation process at a really young age.
At the age of 12 he co-wrote his first song “Today”.
He picked the drums right afterwards. Drumming was a true way to express himself: the rage and rebellion of that tight spot on Earth that is the town of San Benedetto in Italy.
He started playing with different bands and getting his first taste of touring with punk bands all trough the country.
The punk influence was great for him as it was more than anything an anger release from the provincial culture from which he was surrounded. The days of spikes, studs, leather and getting drunk, allowed Siggi to gain experience with live shows and studio recordings.
At the age of 18 he moved to the city of Milan which brought big changes in his life: musically speaking he stepped away from the punk scene and started developing a more mature sound, studying Independence Jazz, blues and soul music.
“Beauty is in the difference” and that’s how he started appreciating creating music.
Even though drums were his passion originally, he always felt like there was a part of himself he needed to discover. Curiosity, was simply too much to take.
After a couple of rough years, he picked up the guitar and fulfilled the urge of singing his music and communicate with people.
Siggi began to devote his time to a solo career, composing songs, recording his own material and writing lyrics.
Influenced by hip hop, R&B and mostly funk, he got closer to great singers of the past, found inspiration in classics like Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown and Prince.
Now moved to Toronto his goal is to make people dance, to give the right positive message, to connect… in his own way.
He’s a musician and playing music is what he loves most .
“I’m not saying everything has a purpose, but maybe.”
His Debut EP “My way Around” released in April 2017 is a 5 track demo explaining his transition into a new culture and the struggles with personal independence. He incorporates Italian song writing influences with a more modern funk, all polished into dynamic sounds, easily danceable, mixing new & old.
About to release a new concept album made of 5 tracks: Human Touch, a true honest representation of society's behaviour and personal growth.
Siggi is constantly collaborating with experienced musicians , from a 3 to a 10 piece band in order to deliver a live show that you'll remember.
Currently working hard on releases for 2020 ...
