"Not since Queen have rock and opera been so fantastically paired and so fashionably presented. Patrizia applies her four octave range pipes to the most unexpected of rock and alternative songs, producing incredible results.

With a 4-octave operatic voice, capable of singing pop, Italian born, Canadian raised Patrizia attracted impressive collaborators for her latest Cd "Rock The Throne". The newest tracks were recorded with producer and multi-instrumentalist Tristan Avakian, who has worked with Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, Trans Siberian Orchestra and Queen. On the iconic Queen song "Show Must Go On", Avakian brought in legendary David Bowie piano player Mike Garson, who gave "Aladdin Sane" its avant garde jazz feel and later worked with Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails.
Other tracks on the album were produced by Steve Thompson (Guns N Roses, Madonna, Whitney Houston), Murray Daigle and Vic Park Productions (Keshia Chanté, Aleesia, Massari), Kenny Maclean (Platinum Blonde) and Paul Milner (Keith Richards, Eddy Grant). Milner brought in acclaimed guitarist Kevin Breit whose credits include Norah Jones, Celine Dion, Rosanne Cash, k.d. lang and Lou Reed.
Patrizia has a vision for her bright future in the music industry above and beyond just performing. She wants to make classical music more mainstream and rid it of elitist associations by mixing it with other genres and updating it to be relatable to the struggles and victories of everyday people. "I want to connect with the common person on an emotional and visceral level," says Patrizia, "music used to break barriers, it's time we shed this last vestige of prejudice and embrace music on the basis of whether it moves us or not.”
