Take a mix of many influences – from mainstream rock and blues to progressive anthems and jazz – put it all together, give the bag shake, and the result is KanOwurmz, a powerful rock ‘n’ blues unit.

Our repertoire includes songs by Queen, Meatloaf, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Deep Purple, ELO, Free, ZZ Top, Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Joe Cocker, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Magnum, Steppenwolf, The Killers, Muse and Uriah Heep, to name a few. We also write our own tunes (yey!) and are currently working on our first EP, which will include six original songs…..with many more ready to record.  Watch this space!

Giordano “Gio” Girotto (keyboards, weird and wonderful effects, backing vocals, arranger, composer)
