Marco Castoldi is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist musician, writer, composer, music popularizer and talent scout. He was born in Milan on 23 December 1972. He made his recording debut at the age of 16 with the band Golden Age, founded the Bluvertigo and with the so-called 'chemical trilogy': Acids and bases (1995), Metal and non-metal (1997) e Zero (1999), would bring the band both commercial and critical success, winning a MTV Music Award and the Prix Leonardo. The band collaborates with Subsonica, Alice, Antonella Ruggiero. Morgan will then play on the album Shellac by Battiato and co-arranges with him Arcane Enigma by Juri Camisasca. He writes the song Reverse fee drawing on verses from the series Black holes by Bompiani, which will be attached to his poetry collection Dissolution. After Bluvertigo's 'freeze' interrupted by a few reunions and a live cd+dvd, Storytellers (2008), the band is set to return with an upcoming album of new releases. As a solo artist he released two albums of unreleased songs: Songs from the flat (2003) - whose single Elsewhere will be considered the most beautiful song of the millennium according to a ranking of the music magazine Rolling Stone and in 2015 will receive a gold disc - and A to A in 2008, containing a duet with Asia Argento in the song Liebestod.
