Gino Rosaria, born and raised in Curaçao and now residing in Florida, has made his debut into the contemporary jazz scene with a billboard charting album “Still Waters Run Deep”. His CD release was a sold out show which left the crowd asking for more! Gino has performed for years as a sideman for artists such as Adam Hawley, Althea Rene, Karen Briggs, Kim Scott, Julian Vaughn, Blake Aaron, Cindy Bradley, and many more. Gino has won several competitions and awards such as the Akademia Music Award for best Funk/Fusion with his Groove Symphony project. Gino has also performed numerous times on national television and on major jazz festivals. Gino recently toured Europe performing his show and has already been asked to return for festivals next year.
Gino’s music can be heard on jazz stations all over the USA, UK, Europe, Asia, and many more. Gino's last single Ride Along featuring Judah Sealy topped at #12 on the Billboard top 30 chart. Gino's next album "Don't Stop Now" will be released on February 13, 2023. That album will feature artists such as Marcus Anderson, Jeff Ryan, Judah Sealy, Wakana, Jazmin Ghent, and Jason Jackson.
“I knew it was time for me to step out as a solo artist. I’ve been putting it off for a long time and playing with other artists. I have some good material to release to the world. Because of my Caribbean and Latin roots, I think I have something special to offer musically. I don’t know how to explain it except by showing it through my music. My time has come to step out onto that stage, not as a sideman, but as Gino Rosaria, The Pianist.” ~ Gino Rosaria
