Vivaldi Metal Project is happy to announce a new arranger-composer to the famly, Rossano Rox !
Rossano Rox Capriotti is an Italian composer, producer, vocalist, piano, keyboards and bass player.
At seven, he started classical piano training in his home town, San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy with his teacher Salvatore Pettini, and after a few years formed his very first band, The Lotus initially as a keyboard player. His great admiration for the masters of rock such as Queen, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and the most recent Muse, drove him to take the microphone and become a singer.
