All Things Fab:
Fabrizio Grossi is an Italian-American producer/mixer, and music consultant.
Musically broken in the New York City scene of the early 90’s, he started his career as US representative, developer and A&R associate for several European and Latin American record and entertainment companies, such as East/West-Warner Italy, Self Spa, Frontiers Records, Edel, EMI Italy and Silverlight Records USA/Mexico.
As the first Italian born bass-player to successfully enter the international rock scene he was officially introduced to the masses by punk icon Nina Hagen and by guitar virtuoso Steve Vai.
He then used these experiences, as a launching pad for a series of very lucky collaborations that resulted with his bass plucking landing on tracks featuring Neal Schon, Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, Frank Gambale, John 5, Ritchie Kotzen, Slash, Eric Gales, Tracii Guns, Gilby Clarke, and more mainstream international acts such as, Tina Arena, George Clinton, Ice T, Sean Dogg and Cypress Hill.
Even though he is very active with his production company, Sounds of Pisces, in organizing events, customized tours, workshops, charities, educational strategies and programs, his main role stays the one of an award winning producer/mixer/re-mixer for an extended array of blues and hard-heavy-country and pop rock artists.
