Hi everyone! My name is Dario Vero.
I’m a pro guitar player, composer, arranger and producer. Music has always been my passion, so I started playing and composing since I was a little boy…just for fun. When I turned 14 my music teachers introduced me into the music-biz, and by the age of 16 I started to do session work thanks to several recommendations from important musicians.
From that moment on I suddenly was catapulted to the most renowned stages, studios and productions all over the world like:
Steve Vai Festival, Boss Loop Station World Championship, Energie,Virgin Territory – Eagle Pictures, LPM,Bridgestone, Festival di San Remo, Rai tv, Rhys Chatham and many more…
I also work as an endorser for: Eventide, Roland/Boss and Earth-tone pedals.
Right now I’m working hard as a side man for many important studios and I’m gonna release my first solo album.
I enjoy making music, listening to Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Mike Landau and Mike Keneally… make long walks in the woods with my girlfriend, collaborating online, perform in studio and create everyday something new.
Hope to see ya asap on stage !!!
Bye bye !!! "
