Crossing and blurring musical boundaries is an art form for Piers Faccini. Treading the frontiers which delineate one country from another, Faccini finds his inspiration in the cultural ambiguity of borderlands. If his songs were maps, they’d stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean. Over seven acclaimed albums, the latest of which is I Dreamed An Island (2016), Faccini has toured his music worldwide, recording and collaborating with numerous musicians including Ballake Sissoko, Vincent Segal, Ben Harper, Rokia Traore and Ibrahim Maalouf amongst others. With both Brtish and Italian roots, he lives in the south of France.
