Paolo "Apollo" Negri

Real Name:
Paolo Negri
Paolo began his career in the early 90s. The Hammond organ is the instrument by which he is most closely associated, thanks to his aggressive and distinguished style with ties to the masters of the past and a true, original, personal view of the future. Paolo is recognized internationally as one of the most important and influential players of this legendary instrument.

He’s the organ player and songwriter of The Link Quartet since 1997 and his style has contributed to the worldwide success of the band, both live and on studio recordings. During the years he’s grown a reputation as an eclectic session man, playing on more than 300 albums covering almost every musical style. He was a central member and songwriter for Wicked Minds (2000-2013) and has joined Black Widow, Ray Daytona & Googoobombos, Mastica, Modulo 5, Low Fidelity Jet-Set Orchestra, Fred Leslie’s Missing Link, and many others.

In his solo career Paolo explored another side of his music, constantly enlarging and expanding his personal musical horizon, digging into jazz, fusion and funk while developing an expert technique on the electric piano and synthesizers. His love for vintage keyboards and mosaic arrangement, together with a taste for fresh style, brought him to collaborate and endorse some famous brands like Waldorf, Studiologic and Arturia.
