Artist: Dale Sanders
Dale is a dreamy small city boy, born in Italy, class of 1981. His deep love affair with rock music started when he was only 9. Spending his teens as an avid rock albums eater, at 17 he decided it was about time to have an actual role in the music scene so he picked up his first guitar and learned how to rock it playing along to his favorite records. The first bands then arrived bringing the chance to start writing original songs, developing his songwriter skills, love for deep lyrical content and building a huge live stage attitude. 18 years have then passed by playing in several bands, writing countless songs, gigging around Europe and growing either as a guitar player, a singer and songwriter. Now in 2018, with the precious help of producer extraordinaire Mario Percudani, he has the chance to fulfill his longtime dream and finally become a solo artist, presenting to the world his debut album “Handle With Care”, a romantic and sincere rock retrospective over what happened in his not-so-quite life during the last years plus his shared vision on today’s world. The first step of many to come!
