Zucchero - Zucchero is credited as the “father of the Italian blues.” His music is largely inspired by gospel, soul, blues and rock music, and alternates between Italian ballads and more rhythmic R&B-boogie-like pieces. Zucchero is one of few European blues artists who enjoy huge international success. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide and has achieved numerous awards, including a Grammy nomination, and the Tenco Atista Prize 2018, which is the most prestigious recognition for Italian singer-songwriters. He has collaborated and performed with many famous artists, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brian May, Miles Davis, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Sting, Bono, Paul Young, Peter Gabriel, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Boccelli, and many others.
