Punk-blues one-man-band THE BLUES AGAINST YOUTH is back on the road following his Covid-enforced lay-off.
The Turin-based musician turned heads in 2021 with the album As The Tide Gets High And Low and the radio- and video-hit 'Particle Filter Blues'. The album also won Italy's Album Art Vinyl award, the sleeve design competing against more than 50 entrants, including several major label releases.
Gianni (to his mum) had booked a marathon European tour only to be forced to cancel as Europe was hesitant to open up following lockdown. He's now lined up a month of gigs taking in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria and the UK, his first visit since opening for Popa Chubby at the start of 2020.
