BIOGRAPHY

Born in Nice, France, in 1993,
I started my musical studies at the conservatory of Nice, playing cello from the age of 7, switching for electric bass at the at the age of 13 and then for jazz saxophone at the age of 16, from wich both I obtained my final DEM diplomas under the teaching of Jean-Marc Baccarini and Christian Pachiaudi, respectivly in june 2011 and 2013.

I started my musical carreer in the French Riviera's jazz scene at the age of 16,
sharing the stage with great musicians such as Pierre Marcus, Thomas Galliano, Robert Persi, Sebastien Chaumont, Rémi Vignolo, Thomas Delor, or  Jef Roques among many others, performing in venues such as La Note Bleue (Monaco), Nice Jazz Festival (Nice), Jazz à Juan (Juan les Pins), Salle Stéphane Grappelli (Nice) and the different jazz clubs of the Fench Riviera.
I then decided to move to Amsterdam in 2013 to experience new musical horizons, discovering an international scene as well as starting superior studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, from where I gratuated in a double Bachelor degree in both Jazz Saxophone and Electric Bass in june 2017, under the teaching of amazing musicians and teachers such as Ferdinand Povel, Simon Rigter, Ben van Gelder, Jasper Blom, Dick Oatts and the great Jimmy Halperin.
 
During the time I spent living in Amsterdam, I got the opportunity to integrate the Dutch jazz scene, performing in venues such as the Bimhuis, Doek Festival, JazzFest Amsterdam, Red Light Jazz Festival, MeerJazz Festival, Storytelling Festival, Zaal 100, Studio K or De Kom.
In March 2019, I obtained the "Best Soloist Price" from the jazz competition "Keep An Eye International Jazz Award", among bands from New York, Basel, Boston, Cardiff, and Amsterdam.

Being part of this school gave me also opportunities of meeting the highest level musicians in master classes, such as Mark Turner, Joshua Redman, Barry Harris, Aaron Parks or Jeff Tain Watts, and the chance of participating to Big Band projects featuring some of them, as Alex Sipiagin, Rick Margitza, John Clayton, Bob Mintzer or Dennis Mackrel.
Being established in the Netherlands as well as keeping evolving within the French scene gave me the opportunity to meet musicians from all over the world with whom I got involved in different projects (such as "Little Oliphant", the "Uldis Vitols Sextet", "Yfillios Project" or subbing occasionally in the "Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw"), as well as the chance to play tours in multiple foreign countries (in addition to France and the Netherlands) such as Belgium, Italy, Greece or South Korea.
I started the Adrien Losco Quartet in 2014, featuring Pierre Balda on double bass, Floris van Elderen on drums and Youngwoo Lee on piano, with whom I've been recording my first album as a leader, "Reflexions", in September 2018, to be released under the Parisian label Jazz Family in September 2019, available on all platforms following the links on the top right corner of this website.
