Vinicio Capossela Biography

thumb|right|160px|Vinicio Capossela Vinicio Capossela (born 14 December 1965) is an Italian singer-songwriter. His style is strongly influenced by US singer and songwriter Tom Waits (Capossela repeatedly recorded his songs with the help of Waits' guitarist, Marc Ribot), though it also draws from the traditions of Italian folk music (especially those of Irpinia, the part of Campania where his family moved from in the 1950s). Capossela's lyrics are highly original and are often inspired by literary sources such as John Fante, Geoffrey Chaucer, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and others.

Capossela was born in Hannover (Germany) from Italian parents, and moved very early to Emilia Romagna. He has been living in Milan since 1987.
