Nato a Roma nel 1987, Riccardo De Stefano è conosciuto principalmente per la sua attività di critico musicale. Dopo dieci anni di attività di critico musicale, comprendenti creazione e direzione di ExitWell, scrittura di due libri in materia (“Era Indie”, 2019; “Musica in lockdown”, 2021 per Arcana Edizioni), nonché collaborazioni a eventi di risonanza nazionale (è nel direttivo artistico del MEI di Faenza dal 2019), Riccardo De Stefano ha deciso di rimettersi in gioco “riportando tutto a casa”, per citare Bob Dylan. In che modo? Riprendendo in mano la sua passione per la musica, ma in qualità di musicista. Benché in passato già attivo con formazioni del panorama musicale underground romano, stavolta ha deciso di metterci non solo la faccia, ma anche il nome e il cognome: rinunciare a un nome d’arte significa non avere niente dietro cui volersi nascondere. E se qualcuno se lo stesse domandando, il lavoro del critico e del musicista non sono in contraddizione: per De Stefano sono entrambi modi di capire, e amare, la musica.

My favorite group when I was just a teenager were the Fugees, thanks to them a certain curiosity about english language was born in me. I wanted to know and understand the lyrics of their songs, it wasn't enough for me to be carried away exclusively by their beautiful music.
Sweden and the United States are two countries far from each other, thousands of kilometers separate them, the language, culinary and sporting traditions, I don't feel so categorical about the landscapes, not knowing all of America there may be states that have the same reliefs of the country of northern Europe, but on one thing I am sure
