Riccardo Di Benedetto born in Bologna, Italy, professionally known as Dechard, started his music career in 2013 as a DJ performing on stages such as Universal City Walk, Egyptian Theatre, Avalon Hollywood, CBS Tv Studios, LA Fashion Week, Kelly Osbourne’s party at Roosevelt Penthouse and many others. The same year he took up a challenge and remixed “Lie” from singer Alex Vargas in collaboration with Jerusalem.
Riccardo has his sound featured by FOX TV series “Dos Lunas” and Indie movie “Love is All You Need?”. In 2015 he began a collaboration with a Swedish singer Sabrina Petrini, producing her single “Fucking in Love”. The song, which also got a nomination for the best pop at HMMA Awards, was up for a Grammy Consideration for the best pop duo. Dechard lives in Los Angeles (California). He got an inspiration to start a musical project from the surrounding and the never-ending summer feelings. He has developed his signature sound with stomping grooves and dreamy atmospheres all meld with tropical vibes.
In October 2017, Dechard released his first single titled “Far Away”. After releasing a music video on VEVO, the song has received heavy rotation on multiple music platforms. He has been promoting his music at shows in North America and currently working on his second single, which will be out in Summer 2018.
