The founder of ZIO Jimmy is heavily involved in all aspects of the writing, lyrics and production of the album. Jimmy wrote the story of Flower Torania inspired by his love of video games and sci -fi and the album has grown around this story with a little help from his friends! The album has a huge Pop Prog Rock influence.
Quote “Zio is like Whitney Houston meets Freddie Mercury performing with Rush!”
The band made their live debut at France’s Crescendo Festival last Summer, unveiling a line-up that includes Franck Carducci keyboard player Olivier Castan, guitarist Marc Fascia and New Device bassist Liz Hayes. It will feature the vocal talents of Pallagrosi’s former Karnataka bandmate Hayley Griffiths and former Enid vocalist Joe Payne.
That Joe Payne is playing the role of the hero, Alan and Hayley Griffiths his beautiful side kick, Flower Torania, (also the new album title) together they embark on a journey across the worlds of the video game.
