Originally from Wales & London Cozzi’s love of Prog music became cemented when he first saw Steve Hackett at Brunel University in the early 80s when he was touring “Spectral Mornings”
Cozzi got his start in the mid 80’s as the guitarist for the band Shriekback which had the pleasure of touring with bands such as “Simple Minds” “INXS” and “Peter Gabriel” He would joke with David Rhodes of Gabriel’s band that they should swap gigs.
A few albums & several tours later, it lead him to working with the likes of, “King Swamp” “Shakespears Sister” “Andrew Ridgely” “Lulabox” and many other projects all over the globe.
Settling in Seattle with his photographer wife Karen Moskowitz in the early 90’s, Cozzi Joined the band “Sky Cries Mary” with whom he co wrote 5 albums and toured extensively.
During this time Cozzi opened up his recording studio “Moscozzi Studio” http://www.moscozzistudio.com/ where he co-wrote and produced the last two SCM albums “Here and Now” and “Small Town” ( a Lou Reed favorite by he way) During this time he also wrote and produced music for bands, films, commercials, video games etc. which let to him meeting and working with Trey Gunn. Some time later Trey asked Cozzi if he knew of a guitarist for “The Security Project”, Cozzi put his hand up like a kid in the classroom and said “me me me”.
Cozzi is really excited to be playing with the members of The Security Project he says “It’s like turning full circle back to my prog roots”
