CBC Radio 3 calls PATRIZIA "Canada' s next SENSATION"! This award winning diva combines powerful 4-octave operatic vocals with the stage presence of a true bonafide rock star!
PATRIZIA breaks all rules and pushes boundaries by fusing opera/classical to rock/metal creating a stunning new genre in the music world!
Dazzingly beautiful to the point that you don't wish to listen to anything else other than this album on repeat play...Carl Buxton (Fireworks Magazine)
"Not since Queen have rock and opera been so fantastically paired and so fashionably presented. Patrizia applies her four octave range pipes to the most unexpected of rock and alternative songs, producing incredible results.
"Thom Yorke, eat your heart out. That's a voice that needs to be heard to be believed. Just be prepared to be amazed." Nadia Elkharadly - bobsegarini.wordpress.com
"She's a female Freddie Mercury, a rock opera goddess"- Joe Chisolm - Indiecan
...Patrizia’s talent lies not only in her incredible vocal gift, but her ability to blend the classical with the modern in a unique and entertaining way
She took popular songs like Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” and Carl Orff’s “O Fortuna” and sang them with a gritty, rock edge, rendering them into a category unto themselves." http://www.weraddicted.com
"If you think Mariah Carey had a voice that just went on forever, with the power to pierce wonderfully tiny holes in your eardrums, then dahling, prepare for the next level of vocal acrobatics from Canadian super-soprano Patrizia." - Phil Villeneuve (FAB Magazine)
" The audience was fascinated and riveted.."
" Perhaps the most unique performer I have ever heard in my life..Freddy Mercury would have been blown away and completely dazzled by Patrizia"-Linear Reflections
Patrizia’s unique style of fusing opera with rock has garnered the praises from critics and fellow musicians across the country. Her first video “Rage” was featured at the 2001 ITALIAN FILM FESTIVAL as well as charting on BRAVO! Television and her second video “Temptation” reached to #1 in early 2004. Her latest video “Desperation” charted at #2 and was featured on BravoFact presents the "Best Canadian Female Vocalists". Patrizia received a SOCAN award for her #1 song on BRAVO!
Patrizia’s recent collaboration with thrice Grammy award winning producer STEVE THOMPSON(Madonna, Metallica, Guns n’ Roses etc) has resulted in her current release “My Beloved” now on rotation/charting in 30 college stations across Canada.
Born in Abruzzo, Italy, raised in Thunder Bay and now residing in Toronto, Patrizia grew up loving rock music before seeking the bright lights of Toronto to pursue her rock n’ roll dream. While writing and performing with local rock bands the unthinkable happened – she heard a recording of the legendary soprano Maria Callas and her life took a turn. Driven by this newfound passion Patrizia studied and trained under some of the best in the business, Stephanie Bogle, John Hess, Stuart Hamilton, Alisa Palmer, Tom Diamond, Paula Suozzi to name a few, performing as lead in many operatic productions. Although drawing praises for her unique voice and stage presence Patrizia could not let go of her first love – rock music. Hence Patrizia conceptualized the marriage of her two greatest musical lovers to create her trademark style.
