Italian singer-songwriter and record producer, considered as one of the most important exponents of Italian new wave music.
Garbo made his debut in 1981 with "A Berlino... Va Bene," an album clearly influenced by David Bowie's "Berlin Trilogy" that, pushed by the eponymous title-track, raised some attention from critics and the public. His two subsequent albums had some success, but the peak of his career came in 1984 with the song "Radioclima" that he presented at the Sanremo Music Festival winning the Critics Jury Award. He returned to the Sanremo Festival the following year, with the song "Cose veloci". In 1993, Garbo founded his own record label, Discipline, with which he released his later works.
In 2006, Garbo was honoured by a tribute album, "ConGarbo," in which his most famous songs were covered by some of the most important personalities of Italian independent music such as Baustelle, Delta-V, Krisma, Zu and Meg (former members of 99 Posse), Soerba, Andy (member of Bluvertigo) and Boosta (member of Subsonica).
