PETRI KALLIO

Petri Kallio

     The story started in 1984 when he was born. Since that time he has listened to many kinds of music. From music for children through dance music, trance, D’n’B, some czech beer-like bands, folk bands to metal. But the first touch of rock music he felt when he was 6 years old. It was old (in that time quite young) czech band Olympic. So he decided to play keyboards because he was blown off by the view of their keyboardist standing behind those huge walls of keyboards.

     After 7 years of piano studies (one more year should come) he decided to play guitar. Yes, it was mostly because of the girls. You can’t take piano with you everywhere, can you? Then somewhere between 1998 and 1999 came his friend to invite he to the Why Not? band. But in spite of lack of bass players he should have played bass guitar. He told him ok and started to learn bass guitar playing. One of best decisions in his life. During the first rehearsals he got charmed by drums. Their drummer showed him those simple rhythm patterns and since that time it is like desease. Air drumming syndrom everywhere, everytime. This band played one concert and fell apart. Then he got busy by high school and there was no time for music. He truly regrets this time without all the bautiful notes.

     In 2006 he worked for 1 year in Germany and on weekends he rehearsed with progressive-based band DarkYard. Lots of beautiful stuff, he got to know other rythm patterns than 4/4. But the band never came out from rehearsal room. 2007 was a great year. He started a band called Wishmasters. It was Nightwish cover band and in that time he started to work with all the recording stuff bacause of all the backing tracks they use. That recording adventure lasts till today. He set up his home studio, but the dream is somewhere beyond.

     After all that came year 2010 when he was invited to Sebastien. Since that time his dream is comming true and he is very happy to be in this band with all that great guys!
