Martin Iaies

Born:

I come from a family of musicians: my father Adrian, jazz pianist (and composer, arranger, producer, educator); my grandmother Betty, his mother, piano teacher. Obviously my first instrument was the piano. When I was 4 years old, my dad sat me down at the piano, taught me the notes on the white keys and told me to call my grandmother on the phone so that she would be the one to take care of my education. 

As a teenager, out of rebelliousness but also because of musical tastes (RAMONES, Led Zeppelin, Divididos), came the desire to play the guitar. And one day chatting with my teacher at the time, I was about 16 years old, I came to the conclusion that nothing of what I saw at school interested me. Just making music.
