Violetta Zironi started writing her first songs at the age of 16, gigging with a country/blues trio in bars and festivals around the North of Italy. In 2016 she left Italy to live in London and Berlin, playing gigs, traveling back and forth and writing her songs on the train. During the summer of the same year she left for a long journey across Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas. A relaxing and illuminating journey where she came across amazing musicians who she played and wrote songs with. Being on the road, she developed what is now her own sound, which derived from different influences of folk, americana and country music, whilst embracing her European and Mediterranean roots.
All of those adventures gave her inspiration for her upcoming EP: "Half Moon Lane", from the name of the road where she lived in London.
