“One of the most influential drummers of his generation”

“A drummer around whom a cult of admiration has formed”

“Guiliana may well be at the forefront of an exciting new style of drummer…”

Guiliana’s debut album, BEAT MUSICBEAT MUSICBEAT MUSIC! was Nominated for a 2020 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Contemporary Album”. Guiliana’s sophomore album, The Sound of Listening (2022), was given 4.5 out of 5 Stars by Downbeat Magazine and has received rave reviews.
