Simone Sello

Simone Sello, the mind behind MusicDemoProducer.com, started studying the guitar and the violin when he was about 10, and began his professional career right afterwards. He got to play with many international artists from Italy (his native country), and became the guitarist in the orchestra of the popular Sanremo Festival, where he played with several remarkable musicians, such as George Benson, Pat Metheny, Toots Thielemans, Ray Charles, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Laura Pausini, and many others.
In those years, he also co-arranged and produced the song "Non Ci Sto", which brought the singer Syria to win the contest associated with the Sanremo Festival in 1996.
He currently lives in Los Angeles, where he works as a music producer, session guitar player, songwriter, and journalist for music magazines. Here he has done session work with musicians like Billy Sheehan (bass player with David Lee Roth, Niacin, Mr. Big and solo artist), Aaron Carter and his brother Nick Carter, from Backstreet Boys , Kevon Edmonds (After7, Baby Face), Julia Fordham , Warren Cuccurullo (Frank Zappa, Missing Persons, Duran Duran), Vasco Rossi and many others.
He also works in composing, playing and producing music for TV, movies and sound libraries.
