Alex Argento is a keyboard player, composer and mixing engineer from Palermo, Italy. He began playing keyboards at the age of fourteen and until today he is completely self-taught.
He started to work immediately in the music business as a session player for a lot of local bands in Sicily.
Thanks to the internet, he started to work by distance also with other musicians around the world (recording sessions).
But after the release of his first solo album “EGO” in 2007 (completely arranged, mixed and produced by himself), he quickly became one of the most in-demand keyboardists both in the studio and live.
In fact, since 2003 he recorded on 20+ albums playing together with some of the most respected musicians around the world, including:
Vigil Donati (Planet X), Simon Phillips (Toto), Bissonette brothers, Greg Howe, Dave Weckl (Chick Corea), Marco Sfogli (James Labrie), Fabrizio Leo (Eros Ramazzotti) Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Neal Morse, Collin Leijeenar (Neal Morse’s Band), Michael Lepond (Symphony X), Ted Leonard (Enchant), Kee Marcello (Europe) and so on.
Alex is also part of Ice Fish.
