Passionate about music Titus started playing classical guitar at around the age of 10 and it wasn't long before he discovered the electric guitar.
Throughout the years he always had great deal of satisfaction in developing both his acoustic fingerpicking playing on the acoustic guitar and delving into electric guitar styles, combining the study of Jazz, Blues and Rock.
Active on stage since 1994 joining local bands and attending small festivals first in Italy and Europe, Titus had trips to USA from 1996 to 2015 to attend courses and seminars at MI, and for recording studio/live collaborations.
During his years in North East of Italy, He had the opportunity to deepen his knowledge of Blues and Jazz at CAMM and got involved in some interesting bands touring too ( Talkin'Acid , Funk project etc. ).
In London Titus committed himself to deepen the study of Jazz, Composition, Performance and Production at LCCM Uni ( University of Middlesex / Open University ) , achieving a BA (with Honours). LCCM and London gave him the chance to do workshops masterclasses and courses with Pianist Barry Harris, Roland Perrin, Mike Outram, Tommy Emmerton, Ant Law, Guthrie Govan, Peter Bernstein, Rob Harris ( Jamiroquai rhythm section ) , Dave O' higgins, Jordan Rakei, Mike Stern, Morten Faerestrand, and more.
Aside from that in 2016 he successfully completed a Jazz Improvisation course at Berklee online, mastered by renowned pianist Gary Burton.
London now remains Titus home and he's busy dedicating himself to several live/studio projects : Mind The Cat funk trio, Music of The Soul Live Band, Unmuted Live sessions, Baby Powder, Measures Quartet, TECO and other collabs with singers and artists such as Valntna, Mikyla, Natalie C, Hannah Mei, Wezi, Ace Motif, Siobhan , plus solo work.
Titus playing is rooted in Jazz but with tight connections to Blues, Soul, Funk and Rock.

I have played as a session musician in many projects in different studios.
I am always up for new high potential projects.
I collaborate with various London studios but I also have my personal studio based around a PRO-TOOLS DAW + RME Audio Interfaces + Amps and Mics so I'm able to record acoustic / electric guitar in any style, produce records and assist in the production from editing to mastering.
I am constantly working on albums and recording either remotely ( from my studio ) or physically in studios.
I play different guitars with a special preference for Fender Stratocasters, Telecaster, Suhr, I also play Gibson guitars and Martin Acoustic Guitars.
No particular preference for amps effects or pedals as my choice of gear always depends on the studio/live context.
