Daniella Iezzi was born in Castel di Lama, an Italian 8.000-citizens town, occurrence that has determined her inclination to daydreaming and herpassion for arrosticini (typical dish of the Marche region, central-east coast of Italy).
As a child I’ve never been ashamed of singing in front of people, but speaking, that was a problem, probably because of my troubled childhood. In search for my personal peaceful place, I finally find it when at 12 years old, my guitar teacher, totally amazed from my musicality, take me on tour with him.
Singing on a stage for the first time was a turning point in my life and that’s when I decide the small town life don’t suit me anymore and that it’s time to move, even without any financial stability.
This is just the first of a long series of craziness that are going to characterizes my life. In the big Babylon of Rome it’s not that easy to make a living though: while doing all sort of jobs to go on, I manage anyway to integrate myself into the musical environment of the big city. I start to perform in different contexts, bringing around my songs and scrounging beers for my friends
Somehow I start up teaching. Listening to other voices is an experience that bring me to learn how to recognize strong points and weak spots of each of them and in the meanwhile to deeply understand mine, most of all the inner one. Today I’m aware that teaching has been extremely important for my personal and artistic growth. The idea of Meccanismi is born exactly from this awareness, from the profound sense of harmony that comes from sharing a passion. That’s why with Meccanismi I’ve decided to use the music (and other kind of arts from the oldest to the newest) to approach people in an authentic manner, without prejudices of any kind, in a genuine and liberating way. This is only the first step and I’d like to make it with you all.
