His grandfather Juan Parrochia played the accordeon and harmonica, his grandmother -on his mother’s side- played the piano, and his mother practiced ballet. His grandmother -on his father´s side- played the guitar and sang. All of them, had a great influence on Diego’s personal and artistic development.
He studied at Saint George´s College, where his passion for singing grew in the school’s religious choir. At sixteen years old, he took his grandmother’s acoustic Oregon guitar and started composing his first songs when playing with music, which led to him forming his first band and doing his first public concerts. As soon as he finished school, he started studying the Degree on Musical Composition at Instituto Profesional Projazz, since artistic expression has always been his passion.
Afterwards, due to his big interest and motivation within the artistic realm, he took classes and followed masters into different disciplines, among others: Raíz Latinoamericana, Fusion World Music, Poetry and Yoga.

He explored different music markets during three years, learning different audiovisual, sound and image techniques.
He continues his professional projects up to this date, forming new musical groups, sharing stage with other solo singers in public presentations, recording in studios, and filming videoclips.
I have always been profoundly inspired by the music in life; Im very passionate about exploring the diverse cultures and translating the artistic vibrations of nature. Music is my tool of work, and my way to communicate with people. Singing and composing is my life, the instruments my companions and the song a work of thought. I can see my future continuing to grow, develop my artistic talents, strengthen my weaknesses and untiringly study what it is hard to reach for the objetive. With my music I want to make a contribution to humankind and persevere in giving love.
