Davide Tosches has been influenced by many people in his life, both music and non-music people: Bruce Cockburn, Jim White, Grieg, Joe Henry, Piero Ciampi, Edward Hopper, Dino Buzzati, Eugène Delacroix, Martin Luther King, Frank Sinatra, Gesù Cristo, Smog, Lenny Bruce, Andrea G. Pinketts, Megadeth, and Duke Ellington.
Davide Tosches was born in Turin in 1974. A multi-talented instrumentalist and innovator, he recorded autoprodotto Stressmog! (2006), then Dove l'erba è alta (2009), Il lento disgelo (2012), and Luci della città distante (2014).
He has worked with numerous performers from the Italian music scene and abroad, either as a musician, illustrator, photographer or graphic designer. His songs often make reference to nature, but the lyrics steer clear of the type of clichés found in other environmental songs.
He also founded Contro Records in 2009. The label only publishes instrumental tracks or tracks sung in Italian.
In 2013 he opened "Confine del Bosco", his recording studio, at Cavagnolo. Here he has recorded Giancarlo Onorato, Hugo Race and Catherine Graindorge, Dead Cat in a Bag, and Mariano Deidda, amongst others.
