Biography

Born and raised in Pavia, Italy, Stefano Intelisano grew up with a solid classical piano and organ education. Acclaimed european jazz pianist Umberto Petrin is mostly responsible for shaping and guiding Stefano's first attempts at non-classical music in different forms. The first opportunity of playing and touring with an established successful blues/roots band in Italy and Europe (while attending Industrial Design/Architecture studies at the Politecnico University in Milan) came joining Fabrizio Poggi and Chicken Mambo.

This eventually lead to a working position in the US - arranging and recording keyboards at the Cribworks recording studio owned and operated by Merel Bregante (drummer for Loggins&Messina, Nitty Gritty Dirt band, producer, engineer) in Austin, TX.

Steady Austin-based band collaborations (including at times production and co-writing) followed: Seth Walker, Jimmy LaFave, Clay McClinton, Larry Joe Taylor, Mike Blakely, Boombox ATX, Mingo Fishtrap, the Grooveline Horns band, Atash, Don Harvey's "A is Red", Sauce, John Arthur Martinez. Remarkable, among these, is the one with the Diakonos Ministries church, whose band and choir perform weekly with fire and passion a wide repertoire of traditional and contemporary gospel tunes.

Great touring opportunities occurred soon, among which the ones with singer/songwriter Patty Griffin, with latin pop-star Cristian Castro and recently with music icon Jason Mraz, all Grammy winning artists. 

Some other remarkable artists collaborations: Chuck Rainey, Roscoe Beck, Christopher Cross, John Popper (Blues Traveler's lead singer/ harmonica player), Tom Cochrane, Jeff "Skunk"Baxter, Delbert McClinton, Raul Malo, Hal Ketchum, Michael Des Barres, Gary Nicholson (Whitey Johnson), Ivan Neville, Cyril Neville, Marcia Ball, John McEuen, Buckwheat Zydeco, the contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary, country artists Pat Green and Charlie Robison

In 2011 Stefano joined guitar master David Grissom's band.

In 2013 he joined the cult rock band the Bodeans.

Don Harvey's "Light Shines Through "                     
cinematic "open music" project, 
released in early 2012,
features Stefano's arrangements,
co-production and co-writing.

His most recent project is Austin's superband Big Cat, featuring Roscoe Beck on bass (Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Leonard Cohen), Malford Milligan on lead vocals (Storyville, Eric Johnson), Les Fisher on drums and Dave Sebree on guitar. New album debuting in the fall of 2015.
