Early Years

Born into an italian family (sicilian to be precise), music has always been part of his life. This passion comes from his father, a construction worker and also battery player for Les Tigres Sauvages. One could say that he was born with the battery sticks on the hands: since he is 6 years old he plays the battery and at 7, he receives as Christmas gift a synthetiser Korg M1, opening up his composer side.

Begining

Fascinated by the new instrument, Fabrizio Peco begins to build a parallel universe: by day, a happy kid, a good boy and great student. By night, in his room and often times isolated from adults, he begins to learn by himself to play the piano, and explores creating his first songs.

Encourage by his parents, he attends the Music Academy in Liege, where he will follow five years of music theory as well as singing courses.
