About Tommaso Zillio

I am a prog rock/metal guitarist, composer and teacher in Edmonton, AB, Canada. I have 18 years of playing experience, on and off stage, both solo and with a variety of bands. My last show to date had been a series of performances of the Rocky Horror Show with the Vi! Va! Voom!! entertainment company. In 2009 I released, together with other 13 artists, the compilation CD "Under the Same Sky", distributed worldwide in 10.000 copies.

I am a proud endorser of AMT electronics, the best distortion pedals on the planet.

Among my favorite musician and influences are: Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, Joe Satriani, Andy Timmons, Mike Oldfield, Jean-Michel Jarre, Deine Lakaien, Litfiba, Nightwish, Astor Piazzolla, Hans Zimmer.

I am a graduate of the Tom Hess's Music Career Mentoring Program and Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle.
