Luca Bash

It is easy to tell my story. I live into a heavy dichotomy: between a normal life of studies and an education path strictly respected, and a second one, where I seek to express myself through the arts.
I believe this is the case for a lot of people.
The first one is going well. I have a Job, a good earning, professional satisfactions and a comfortable seat in this society. The other one was a research ended at the end of the 90s, when I chose to explain myself through music and songwriting.
In 1994 I sold my violin after three years of studies to buy my first guitar, which was a room ornament until 2002, when I started a more songwriting oriented path at the University of Music in Rome. In parallel (1994-1997) I attended private lessons in oil painting and sculpture, and then (1997-1999) I joined the choir of my high school "Primo Levi", with the director Fabrizio Barchi. In 2004 I finished my experience at UM, recording 13 guitar and vocal tracks. "Dear John", written in 2005, gave me the chance to advertise my art by winning in 2006 the International Festival of Songs of Piombino, including the award for best interpretation.
This was also the period when my band 'BASH' began (see the BIO BASH). "Crumblin' Lover" represented the first piece arranged by the band (at that time we were called Luca Bashin' Monkeys). In 2007 we joined again The Festival of Piombino with this song and and we took the Best Arrangement award.
Today I live between music and work, sacrificing everything else.

In 2011 the Bash adventure ended. Rick, bass, went to Barcelona. Giovanni, guitar, moved to Milan. We tried with David and Fabio an attempt to rebuild our project, but we had incompatible schedules. So "Bash" became part of the history books.
In 2012 I went to Turin to follow my “ordinary” life expectations. After some months of settling in, I met Giovanni again, my previous band guitarist, because Milan and Turin are "quite" close. "Only" 130 km.
We decided to compose again and to assemble a new band. Meanwhile I took my notebook and I re-started writing songs.
In 2013 we started recording our first tracks, still without a project "container", in other words without a clear masterplan.
The 17th of April 2013 I had a serious accident on my motorbike. I woke up after a 5 days of coma in a bed, with tubes, pills and a third of my spine broken, accompanied by some ribs and a shoulder collapsed as well.
After 5 months I was ok and able to do all the things I used to do before that crash. A miracle, If I were a believer. A big BIG B I G stroke of luck, It probably was.
With this behind me one thing became clear: I had written a lot of songs which had never seen the light of day.
And so the CMYK project started. For me it is a way to “print” my art, and no matter how many followers I'll get or the resonance it will have. I have to do it. I need to do It. Now. That's it.
