Dario is super-excited to announce the release of “Awakenings” by Glory Oath & Blood (Warner/Chappell) for which he wrote a few tracks in collaboration with fellow composer Omar Fadel.

“Awakenings is comprehensive collection of trailer intro cues by a true all-star cast of composers. We’ve spent months recording grand pianos in old churches, huge string ensembles in Budapest, and even enlisted the superhero talents of famed cellist Tina Guo here and there.” (GO+B)

Listen to the album here.

Dario will be playing Gibson guitars for the upcoming tours. It is a great honor and privilege to perform with such amazing and truly iconic guitars!

The Dirty Job’s debut album “Episode 1” has just been released on Soundcloud (link below). The 5-song album pays tribute to Surf Rock and wild spirits, with lots of guitar riffs, energetic drums, and dirty reverbs!

Dario co-wrote the tracks with drummer Edo “The Tank” Tancredi, and produced the album aiming to keep an authentic approach to the writing and recording process as the only way to get to the real essence of what 60’s music and surf rock is.
The album was recorded at Fly The Coop Studios in Los Angeles, CA and mixed by Antonio Porcelli at Ext Station Studio in Trani (BT), Italy. Crank it up and enjoy!

Dario is currently in the studio composing and producing music for a few new exciting projects for 411 Music Group and Gramoscope Music, and collaborating with fellow composer Eddie Grey on Season 3 of Emmy Award winning TV show “Born This Way”.

Dario had the pleasure of working on this project recording guitars at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles alongside some pretty great musicians!


It was such a fun time performing at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood opening for Italian rock band Negrita thanks to Hitweek. Great music with great people!
