Simone Sello – Heart of Art Finalist 2015

Simone Sello

Simone Sello, born in Rome, Italy on July 4 1968, is a music composer, guitarist, music producer and music journalist. He is mostly known for his work with the Sanremo Festival Orchestra, Billy Sheehan, Aaron Carter, Disney, Hannah Montana, Vasco Rossi, Amber Lily, and Warren Cuccurullo.

His musical upbringing is based on classical violin studies, in spite of his career as a guitar player. His influences include major classical and jazz composers and performers, (Johann Sebastian Bach, Maurice Ravel, Miles Davis, Weather Report), pop and rock acts (The Beatles, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Metallica), and experimental artists (Luciano Berio, Brian Eno).

Equally interested in performing, composing and producing music, Simone started getting hired to play guitar for recording sessions and live performances by artists in his hometown Rome at the age of 17 years, and eventually became known on a national level. While building a long list of musical collaborations, he started writing articles for magazines, thus achieving a different kind of exposure, still in the music field.

At the age of 29, he moved to Los Angeles to push his musician and journalist careers. Currently, he mainly works as a composer for TV and film music (some of his works are featured in TV shows such as the World Poker Tour, Alpha 8 and E News, as well as in movies like Two Lovers, When In Rome and Brand: A Second Coming).
