This mysterious and beautiful music by Alessandro Stefana entrances me. Its fragility and tenderness bring comfort and understanding. It reflects the unique sensitivity of its creator, who has drawn on his experience to bring this profoundly moving, and life affirming record to the world. - Polly Jean Harvey, Executive producer
Ipecac Recordings proudly presents the eponymous solo album by guitarist, producer and composer Alessandro “Asso” Stefana, due for release on 17th May 2024, with PJ Harvey as Executive Producer.
The musical journey of Alessandro "Asso" Stefana, hailing from Brescia, Italy, is a compelling one, and if you've heard PJ Harvey's The Hope Six Demolition Project, Mike Patton's Mondo Cane, Calexicos El Mirador, or Micah P. Hinsons I Lie to You, Penguin Cafes Rain Before Seven..., or listened to Guano Padano's output on Ipecac, you'll have encountered him.
Hometown: Italy
