The Band

/

Jimmy Pallagrosi

Founder of the band. Jimmy is heavily involved in all aspects of the writing, lyrics and production of the album.  Jimmy wrote the story of Flower Torania inspired by his love of video games and sci -fi and the album has grown around this story with a little help from his friends!  The album has a huge Prog influence and Jimmy's Drum Kit is growing larger by the day!! 

Olivier Castan

The Creative Genius of the band. Olivier is one of the co-writers of the project and has also drawn and designed all of the incredible artwork you see.  On Keys Olivier provides an eclectic balance of modern and vintage styles in his playing. 

Lzi Hayes

Lzi brings the ROCK to the band. From a background in heavy rock and metal, Lzi may be a newcomer to Prog but is waiting to burst your ear drums with her huge wall of sound and infectious energy on stage. 

Marc Fascia

aka Daddy Marc; the quiet one of the band. Working in the video game industry by day he's a Guitar hero by night. Marc  also plays a huge part in the song writing for ZIO.  As well as being a dab hand at cutting melons he's going to be building the ZIO console with Jimmy and eventually creating us our very own video game! 

Special guests

Hayley Griffiths

Singing the part of Flower Torania, Hayley brings the charm and beauty to ZIO. Hayley has the talent to jump from rock to opera to pop and her vocal versatility mirrors Torania's own character and journey. 

That Joe Payne

Singing the part of our hero Alan. With Joe's huge vocal range everything and anything is possible, which makes the writing very easy and exciting! No barriers and no limits just like Alan.

Franck Carducci

There wouldn't be any better choice to ask our dear friend Franck to play Nato the villain of the story. You will enjoy his talent and charisma but don't be too scared of his evil side...

Heather Findlay

We are delighted to announce Heather as fourth guest singer on the album; Flower Torania. Heather Findlay will be playing the role of Belbi in our story about a cursed maiden.
