Keyboard Player/Organist. I am an organ/keyboard player moved to England from Italy in 2013. I studied organ and organ composition at the Conservatory of Ferrara with Maestro Francesco Tasini and Maestro Vincenzo Ninci. I also studied Jazz Piano with Maestro Massimo Mantovani at the School of Modern Music in Ferrara. I was also a piano at the G.A.M. Stanghella from 1998 to 2004. I was an organist for some of the most important churches in Rovigo. I always played keyboards in groups of musicians of high level, both in live and studio productions. I prefer the Rock genre and, as a keyboard player, I love the 70s progressive rock especially Keith Emerson (Nice, ELP), for his unique ability to synthesise the music of the great Bach with rock, blues and jazz. From 2008 to 2012 I was keyboardist/arranger for Cockerilla, an Italian Joe Cocker tribute band.
More recently I played with an Indie Local Band called "The Yum", based in Leeds, UK.
Currently I play with KanOwurmz, a Rock/Blues band based in York.
I like to call myself a musician "BETWEEN THE SACRED AND SECULAR".
