The Shijo x started in Bologna (Italy) in 2009 as a duo formed by Davide Verticelli and Laura Sinigaglia. On the same year their first album "one minute before" was released by Ideasuoni. In 2011 two new members joined the band: Federico Adriani on drums and Federico Fazia on bass guitar. In 2012 Bombanella dischi released the second album "…if a night" with a more trip-pop sound. In 2015 Andrea Crescenzi replaced Federico Fazia as bass player. Shijo x performed numerous live concerts in Italy and Europe, they were chosen to play at Liverpool sound city 15 and Open Air berg 14 and traveled to Sao Paolo, Brazil, for the Comites international party live show. They also played as opening band for Kaiser chiefs and Paolo Nutini during the Italia Wave Festival 11 (they won best band from Abruzzo). Their third album will be released in 2017, it was recorded in Bombanella studio during 2016 and mastered by Jim Blackwood in the U.S.A. The sound, always experimental and very personal, drifts away from the trip-pop atmosphere of the second album to define a much stronger signature style.
