"It feels like one of the most important chapters of my musical life suddenly ended that Monday morning. It took me a while to realise. Losing a dreamer like him means having one less fundamental inspirational figure… It is a big responsibility to keep this spirit alive. I feel very privileged and thankful I could be part of his world. If I was speaking in Italian just now he would be making fun of my Tuscan accent. Then he would lift his left arm and “dolce” would be the sound coming from his gesture."
