Ross William Wild - Vocals | Fabio Staffieri - Guitars | Francesco Lucidi - Drums
2019 saw the band welcome new vocalist Ross William Wild. A stunning performer and vocalist Ross come with a wealth of experience as a vocalist in both musical theatre and with a stint singing with the legendary Spandau Ballet in 2017. The band lineup is completed by guitarist and founding member Fabio Staffieri and drummer Francesco Lucidi. Francesco recently starred as the drummer in Elton John’s band in the critically and commercially acclaimed “Rocketman” film.
Mercutio first made a name for themselves with debut album Back To Nowhere, which earned them support from the likes of Planet Rock, Classic Rock and Prog Magazine, who stated "Mercutio have created a strong debut offering". They also made fans in muso stars Anna Phoebe and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree). Edwin quickly became a big supporter which led to him collaborating with the band, resulting in an appearance on the debut album.
Currently working on their new album, Mercutio are signed to Independent label Diverge Records run by composer and producer Gianluca Cucchiara, and backed by film producer Giovanna Romagnoli (Academy Award for Cinema Paradiso).
