Jeremy Villucci 

Keyboards/Backing Vocals

 

Jeremy is a keyboardist with 11 years playing experience. He was brought up with a classical background, taught by William Riddlespurger, but he always has an interest in rock and metal. For a good part of his music life, he was certain that pianos had no place in metal or rock, but after discovering players like Derek Sherinian, Jordan Rudess, Jens Johansson, and Vitalij Kuprij, his musical world expanded and he started delving into the mysterious world of Prog. For the last 4 years, he has been focusing on keyboards and synthesizers, learning new things about ways to use them to create new and evolving music. In the search for his place in the music scene, Jeremy played with different musicians including Luigi Janssen. In March of 2010, Jeremy joined The Element.
