Claudio Pesavento is a composer, session musician & keyboard virtuoso based in Los Angeles, California..

Claudio was born in Argentina and moved to North America after his band opened for Queen’s Stadium tour in Argentina. In 1980 Freddie Mercury’s manager discovered Claudio and later got him a contract at OM Universal Studios in Montreal Canada.

Claudio left everything he was doing in Buenos Aires and moved overseas where 3 months later he was offered to join Mahogany Rush and began touring sharing stages with QUEEN, AEROSMITH & AC DC, to name a few, as a permanent member. The rest is history.

About his music, Claudio says: “Most people say my music has healing powers plus I also like writing wild stuff with no boundaries and musicality.”

Claudio’s biggest influences include John Lennon, The Beatles, Yes, Genesis, Jazz fusion, Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock & Jan Hammer.

“Music has been my life from the moment I first I heard The Beatles. My life would never be the same after this. Thanks to my brother, Juan Jose Deva, he had all the vinyl goodies from Hendrix to Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and Yes.”
