Biography[edit]

He grew up in Prati and attended the last year of high school together with Umberto Violo (whose stage-name is Dark Wayne) and Nicolò Rapisarda (whose stage-name is Tony Effe), who in 2014 became members of the trap musical group Dark Polo Gang. At the age of 22 he started performing as an amateur in some Rome clubs using his birth name. From 2016 he used his stage-name Gazzelle, which according to what he said comes from the name of the model of shoes Gazelle produced by Adidas, but it is written with a "Z" more.

His debut single "Quella te," was released on 9 December 2016 and attracted the attention of critics and of the independent music scene. On March 2017 his first album Superbattito was released under the label Maciste Dischi and it included also the single "Zucchero filato" and "Nmrpm." Until that moment Gazzelle chose not to reveal his face, publishing only a few blurred photos on the web.

Then he released the single "Sayonara" and "Stelle filanti" which were included in the EP Plastica, released on 1 August 2017 in vinyl format. Together with the songs "Nero," "Meglio così" and "Martelli" they were also included in the deluxe version of his debut album Megasuperbattito, which was released on 2 March 2018.

On 1 May 2018 and on 1 May 2019, on the occasion of the annual concert, he performed[1] in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, in Rome. On June 2018, he released the song "Super Martina[2]," that he wrote in collaboration with Lorenzo Fragola[3] and that was awarded at the Wind Music Awards 2018 being included in Fragola's album Bengala[4]. He has also collaborated with Luca Carboni in writing the song "L'alba," which is part of the album Sputnik, published by Carboni on 8 June 2018. He was one of the artists who in July 2018 adhered to the article of the magazine Rolling Stone against the immigration policies implemented by the Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini.

He first released the singles "Tutta la vita," "Sopra" and "Scintille" and then his second album Punk was released on 30 November 2018 with the labels Maciste Dischi and Artist First, on this occasion he also announced his national tour, named "Punk tour." On 26 April 2019 the album Faber nostrum was released in order to pay a tribute to Fabrizio De André. In this album numerous Italian singers reinterpreted famous songs by the Genoese singer-songwriter and Gazzelle created a cover version of the track "Sally[5]," published in the album Rimini. He also wrote a book of poems, Limbo, which was published on 2 July 2019.

Style and musical influences[edit]

Gazzelle has an introvert and melancholic personality. As exponent of the Italian indie pop, he deals with themes such as love, loneliness, drugs, alcoholism and depression, often using melodic and articulated bases, in antithesis to the themes treated.

He claimed to have been influenced by I Cani, Thegiornalisti, Rino Gaetano, Cesare Cremonini, Vasco Rossi, Tame Impala, Oasis and Nirvana. He defined his musical style as "Sexy pop," stating that it is "a definition born to laugh...like a joke, like an ironic and light way of defining something."
