With a voice that has the soul of blues and the gravelly tones of Tom Waits, young Fil Bo Riva strikes you immediately. The 23-year-old is what you could call a 'true European'. He is half-Italian, hailing from Rome, grew up in Ireland and took off to Berlin, where he learned his craft busking in the streets. There Filippo Bonamici, the voice behind Fil Bo Riva, met like-minded guitarist Felix A.Remm and producer Robert Stephenson (Mighty Oaks). PIAS released their debut EP If You're Right, It's Alright in September, 2016.
