Biography

(1992 – present)

Verdena are an alternative rock band from Albino, Bergamo, Italy. The band members are Alberto Ferrari (voice, guitar), Roberta Sammarelli (bass) and Luca Ferrari (drums). The three have been playing together since 1992.

Verdena rehearse every day (when they’re not on tour) in their garage, where they have built a 24-track recording studio called the Henhouse. The hen-house is their sound laboratory—full many different instruments, like guitars, amplifiers, rhodes, mellotrons, and Korg synths. No digital stuff is allowed to get in!

They view the song like a painter would a picture: to work on by carefully adding more and more layers, yet keeping the big picture in mind. The result is much more than a simple song.

Verdena’s songs, which are stellar in and of themselves, have a new added value since the lyrics are written uniquely. They are not penned in a narrative, logical way. Rather, they follow a stream-of-unconscious style that is closer to the Anglo-American rock language than to the syncope traditions of the Italian language, which are so far from the aesthetics of pure rock. Alberto’s lyrics have always been one of the main characteristics of Verdena that stand out from the usual and reiterated formula of the Italian rock music.
