I’m stoked to announce my participation in the Vivaldi Metal Project as a drummer for their live shows!

Three Years ago I recorded the drums on “Grande Madre” amongst 149 other incredible Musicians, the “Maestro” Mistheria, Atma Anur, Dani Löble, Alberto Rigoni, Rob Rock, Tommy Denander, Bill Hudson, Victor Smolski, Rick Wakeman and many more on this massive project “Four Seasons” released by Pride & Joy Music in 2016.
I am thrilled to say that today I am taking over the drum duties alongside the talented Maestro Mistheria, with whom I proudly also play in Joe Stump’s Tower of Babel.

Soon we will announce the winters hows in Europe!
See you all soon on the road!
