Italian Blues Virtuoso - Roberto Morbioli
Roberto Morbioli was born into a family of musicians and was in touch with his vocation at an early age. He started playing the guitar at 15 and discovered his passion for the Blues.

After several years in the Italian music scene, he recorded his first CD “From Madagascar To Chicago” with the TAO RAVAO BLUES BAND in 1987.

Two years later in 1989, Roberto joined “Rudy’s Blues Band” – With Rudy, Roberto published two albums and started performing on important stages in the USA and Europe: Antone’s / Austin, New Orleans Music Festival / Ascona, Amsterdam Blues Festival, San Remo Festival,.. with famous artists such as Anson Funderburgh or Sue Foley.

In 1991, it was time to go his own way: Roberto founded his own band MORBLUS. With Morblus and its unique sound of Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Soul, Roberto gained high recognition not only in Europe but also at the cradle of Blues, the USA (e.g BB King’s Blues Club in Memphis) where he still regularly tours. Since 2010, Roberto has a US working visa as an artist of extraordinary ability.

After almost 30 years with his band MORBLUS and other projects such as his acoustic trio, Roberto is returning to the roots of his musical career, back to the generic and clean sound of an electric trio. Back to a purer tone with every note played for a purpose, less ornaments.

His personality and unique playing style are evident in all his interpretations while at the same time recalling the styles of blues greats such as Freddy King, Albert King, B.B. King, Albert Collins, T. Bone Walker, Steve Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton.
