Innovative instrumental-guitarist Alex Rosselli specializes in tantalizing, exotic & wild-blends of creative-fusion that combine the most vibrant sounds of Rock, Jazz, Progressive/Instrumental into cosmic-rhythms and grooves made impossible to ignore.

Since receiving a guitar as a gift from a friend when he was in his early twenties, Alex has gone on to breakthrough to new creative-highs and reinvent himself time and time again through his music.  In search of expanding his skillset, refining his sound and discovering stunning new textures, atmospheres and captivating vibes through his guitar. Currently is exploring exciting soundscapes and experimental space-rock.

Alex cites Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Allan Holdsworth, and Joe Satriani as influences. While there are certainly characteristics of these legends' styles in Rosselli's playing, his music greatly expands upon these elements to create a style uniquely his own. His music often employs a very clean, melodic guitar sound, sometimes punctuated with a distorted lead guitar track. His interest in music began later in life, and when Alex was 20 years old, a Greatest Hits presentation of Carlos Santana on TV captured his imagination and things began to take shape. In 1989, a friend handed him an old acoustic guitar and he reluctantly accepted the gift unknowing at the time how it would transform his life. His first attempts at playing songs like the rock classic "Voodoo Chile" pushed him to reach a level of perfection that took many hours of practice and patience. In the period from 1990-2000 there many different musical experiences with rock, metal, pop, progressive rock, entertainment (pop, rock, Italian folk, Latin, Bossa Nova) bands. This time proved to be invaluable as it give the fledgling artists and opportunity to experiment and find what direction he wanted to go in when the time was right to record. From 2000-2001 Alex took lessons from CHARLIE BANACOS. Charlie is the originator of the now classic exercises on such tunes as Autumn Leaves,Giant Steps, Anthropology and major and minor blues. Rosselli takes the nod from Hendrix and all the greats in wide array of genres, including rock, jazz, and fusion. At times he flat out rocks and goes off on a run then decides to drop it down a few notches and play less aggressively allowing the listener to hear the more tasteful and directed side of his playing.
