Born in Salerno, Italy in 1974, guitarist and composer Francesco Lo Castro
started studying guitar late in life, aged 25. He developed his guitar styles and
technique under the tutoring of the great south Italian maestro Gianni Cataleta.
He quit his Economic Studies (and a full time job in marketing) to fully focus on
music in 2004. Two years after, he graduated with honors in music performance
from a BMus at Thames Valley University (London). In the same year, he won the
Best Guitarist Award at the Guitar Institute in London where he attended tutoring
classes by Shaun Baxter and Iain Scott, among others
