BIOGRAPHY

Italian singer, guitarist, composer and multi-instrumentalist, Giullio Allegretti has been active on the music scene since 2008 when he made his debut with the original one man band project "SPOOKYMAN" which sees him engaged in accompanying his voice through a guitar modified by him, hitting suitcases with his feet , cowbells, tin boxes and everything that has the "right sounds" for him.

From 2010 and in the following years, he worked as a composer and a sound-track performer with several Italian theatrical companies, directors and videomakers.

In 2015 he collaborated in the writing and arrangement of the song "Chat Noir" by Le Cardamomò contained in the album "Vive la vie" (Bassa Fedeltà 2018).

His search for unusual sonorities led him to record his first work in a studio by 2016 with the self-titled Album “Spookyman” (self-produced), made of thirteen original tracks, twelve in English and one “ghost track” in his native language, with which he obtains considerable success. The numerous tours will lead the artist to accumulate experiences on important national and international stages that will culminate in his participation in the Santa Maria Blues Festival 2018 (Azores Islands).

In 2019 the desire to change emerges in him and, with it, the desire to work with a band.

He collaborates with the pianist and composer Simone Scifoni, with whom he works on a new record release also with the involvement of the guitarist Marco Di Folco and the harmonica player Andrea Di Giuseppe. From here, He juxtaposes to his stage name the pseudonym "The All Nighters" in reference to the phrase "... all night long", an expression used in many blues lyrics.

On March 22, 2021 He released his second album signed "SPOOKYMAN & THE ALL NIGHTERS'' entitled "BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS'' (Bloos Records) despite the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The LP was recorded in a residence in the village of Pozzaglia Sabina (RI) and it contains 10 unreleased songs, five of which composed by Simone Scifoni. The album, a metaphor of the human being’s creative adaptation to the pandemic, is deliberately devoid of the audio definition that can be found in a studio recording.

Since 2009, he has carried on with his musical project in several contexts: from the humblest pub to the clubs, theatres and national and international festivals, always with the intended outcome resolution. He shared the stage with well-known artists such as Eric Gales, Cody ChesnuTT, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Luke Winslow King, Pat Mother Blues Cohen, Eugene Chadbourne, Bob Log III, and others.

The lyrics of his songs embrace numerous emotional spheres, they face real-life problems and they catapult the listener into swampy scenarios.

He takes his inspiration from John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Bobby Bland, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, but also from Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Black Keys. His music is a match between past and present, full of many shades in which the roots of Blues have their beginnings.

Nowadays, in his home in Rome, he matches his creativity in music and his artistic inspiration to the simple but strong values belonging to his roots, always finding beauty in the smallest things.
