ICEFISH is an exciting cutting-edge progressive rock outfit featuring legendary drummer Virgil Donati, guitarist Marco Sfogli, keyboardist Alex Argento, and bassist/vocalist Andrea Casali.
ICEFISH was formed as a result of Virgil working with Alex and Marco on his record ‘In This Life’, when — in their discussions regarding the direction the music would take — the guys discovered that they all had a singular musical vision. The remarkably talented Bassist/Vocalist Andrea Casali soon joined them to make the vision a reality. Members of ICEFISH have played and performed both on stage and in studio with a variety of artists including Tommy Emmanuel, Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth, James LaBrie, Jordan Rudess, John Macaluso, Adam Nitti, Matt Guillory, Peter Wichers, Peter Wildoer, Ray Riendeau, Mike Mangini, Bryan Beller and others.
“Now that our debut album has been written, produced, mixed, and is finally out there,” says drummer Virgil Donati, “we can say with some conviction that our vision and our faith in each other has culminated in finding that ‘elusive’ new angle we strive for as composers and musicians. We look forward to the evolution of ICEFISH on the second record”!
