In 2011, he relocated from Austin, TX and Minneapolis, MN to the coastal town of Point Reyes Station, CA where he has been considered "...a fixture of the West Marin music scene since he arrived..." by the Point Reyes Light. In 2016, Vitali independently released his debut album. Invernesia, which was tracked entirely to tape at Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco, is an intricate soundscape inspired by the stretch of coastline and forest between Inverness and Bolinas. His live band has billed with Sandy's, Kelly McFarling, Luke Temple, Y La Bamba, Alex Bleeker, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Kacey Johansing, The Range of Light Wilderness, Here We Go Magic, Emily Ritz, Meernaa, and Vetiver. He simultaneously presents a local music series, programs and serves on the board of directors at KWMR - West Marin Community Radio, and actively plays in several bands throughout the Bay Area. Instrumental tracks from Invernesia have been licensed for film through Patagonia and the Save the Boundary Waters Campaign, and he's in the process of tracking a follow-up album at the brand new analog recording studio, Tiny Telephone Oakland.
