Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My name is Giuseppe Trombino, I’m Born in Tivoli, a Little Town near Rome. In my city, I’m known as Hyden. My passion for music began in 2009 at the age of 12, when after the death of Michael Jackson I started by chance to listen to some of his songs. It was love at first sight! Soon I started to know every single song on every single album by heart, and within a few years, I was able to reproduce every single dance step. I wanted to be like him, I wanted to sing as well as him .. so, day after day, without even sleeping at night, I practiced singing, getting better and better, piece by piece. From diaphragmatic breathing to vocal extension… everything had to be perfect. A few years pass, we arrive in 2014 to be precise, where I began to approach rap. Growing up I learned to embrace all music in every single genre. For me, there was a new challenge to face: learning to rap. About a year later, after graduation, with my first job, I started buying my first recording instruments. It was time to make myself heard. Over the years the passion has turned on more and more, and after years of self-taught and a few courses, I have come to what I am today. Singer, Rapper, Producer, and Dancer.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
There is an Italian aphorism that says: Colui che ama, fa tutto senza fatica, oppure ama la sua fatica. (He who loves, does everything effortlessly, or loves his fatigue). This phrase has always helped me in times of difficulty.
