Paolo Conte is one of the most recognized and appreciated Italian voices in the world. The 76 years old singer and songwriter learned to play the piano at an early age, but he didn’t commit to his musical career until he was well into his thirties. In fact, he used to be a lawyer and during that time he would only play on the side with small bands. However, that changed once he started to get recognition as a songwriter in the mid-sixties, with songs such as “Azzurro” and “Genoa per noi”.
Ultimately, he started his solo musical career when he was in his late 30s and he eventually achieved great international success. Nowadays, he’s still touring and performing. For more information about Paolo Conte and his tour dates, visit his official website.
