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.
