Tommaso Cappellato

Tommaso Cappellato is an Italian musician, producer, DJ, composer and an all-around musical maverick. Having been introduced to music at an early age, he's gone on to become an exciting and intriguing figure for jazz enthusiasts the world over. His material - ranging from free‐form hip-hop, techno, and house to pretty much any sub-genre of jazz one can conceive - has been channeled through various projects and bands, the result of which is a rich and stylistically diverse catalog of musical works.

Initially encouraged to learn classical piano, Cappellato’s musical focus took a pivot when a passion for drums was ignited at age 11. By his teenage years, this concentration caught full flame as he dove into a deepening love of the instrument, studying with two professional local drummers before leaving Italy to further his studies in New York. Time at Drummers Collective in New York City and a scholarship with New School University placed Cappellato under the tutelage of several noted musicians, including Michael Carvin, Joe Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, Bob Cranshaw, Billy Hart, and Reggie Workman. It was this fine musical foundation that nourished a seemingly unorthodox breadth of style and vision, thus creating a truly unique new school artist.
