Having begun his childhood with Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits on repeat, Anthony Chiofalo found his sonic niche in his early teens, listening to KROCK spin classics like Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” He continued to dive further into the rock genre upon discovering Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon in his Dad’s CD collection and watching VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock countdown.

At age 13, when he found a guitar in his grandparents’ basement, he began down a road he’d never be able to turn back from.

Chio spent his teen years bouncing from band to band as a guitar player and songwriter. He studied Jazz Guitar for a year in college before dropping out of the music program. For some time after that, he put music aside to get a broader perspective on life. However, he found music was too big a part of him to not play a central role in it all.

After returning his focus to music, Chio began seriously writing and arranging original songs. He continues to work on original material, record, and perform in a variety of capacities.
