Crossing and blurring musical boundaries is an art form for Piers Faccini. Treading the frontiers which delineate one country from another, Faccini finds his inspiration in the cultural ambiguity of borderlands. If his songs were maps, they'd stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean. Over seven acclaimed albums, the latest of which is "I Dreamed An Island" (2016), Faccini has toured his music worldwide, recording and collaborating with numerous musicians including Ballake Sissoko, Vincent Segal, Ben Harper, Rokia Traore and Ibrahim Maalouf amongst others.
Piers Faccini is an English singer songwriter and painter. He was born in London to an Italian father and an English mother. Faccini studied painting at the Beaux Arts in Paris in the early 90’s before first appearing on the music scene in London in 1996 co-founding the band Charley Marlowe with the poet Francesca Beard. He has released seven albums, Leave No Trace (2004) produced by Vincent Segal, Tearing Sky (2006) produced by Jp Plunier, Two Grains of Sand (2009) My Wilderness (2011) Between Dogs & Wolves (2013) Songs Of Time Lost (with Vincent Segal 2014) and I Dreamed An Island (2016).
