Eric Ragno - Keyboards / Rock Keyboard Player / Press

"The keys running through the opener ‘Never Give Up On You’ sees Khymera trying to out-Journey Journey!....Ragno obviously takes his lead from the likes of Cain and Rolie as ‘A Night To Remember’ certainly has more than a passing nod to Journey. It’s by no way a criticism, its hard earned praise."

" I quickly got into contact with Eric Ragno, someone I’ve worked with in the past and has so much experience and class in AOR. I love his modern approach to building AOR keyboard parts.”

Dennis Ward - Frontiers Records

"Eric Ragno, arguably the king of AOR keyboards.....

"...when you look at the list of artists Eric has worked with over the years, it reads as a venerable "Who's who" of the AOR genre...he is a very unassuming guy who is obviously passionate about his work and music in general."

"Eric has enough chops to fill up the sound with plenty of energy...Ragno grooves, providing just the right symmetry & touches...."

"Eric Ragno's keyboards really lift the whole band sound."

“Eric's one of the busiest melodic rock keyboard players and has worked with Ted Poley (Danger Danger), Steve Grimmett (Grim Reaper), David Readman (Pink Cream 69), American Angel...”

"... and keyboard accompaniment that immediately reminds you of Dream Theater."

“Eric Ragno is truly one of the most talent musicians and songwriters in the Present scene.”

“Ragno’s Jersey strength has helped him go from being a McNair Academic High School band geek to a hard-rocking keyboardist with 35 albums under his belt. His latest album is a collaboration with some of the biggest names from 1970s and 1980s like Paul Stanley from KISS and Alice Cooper.”

"...the vocals are backed by some soft, intelligent piano enhanced by a moving keyboard accompaniment giving this arrangement (compliments of Eric Ragno) almost the feel of a small orchestra backing him up."

“He is a keyboardist’s keyboardist, yet he plays by his own rules...Rather than be this full-time composer of massive neoclassical compositions, Eric Ragno is a musician of song and melody - but don’t get me wrong, his musical flexibility covers the whole spectrum of rock, metal, prog, and of course, both AOR and melodic rock, being as technical and fluid as anyone you will hear. ”

"Keyboard player to the stars! "

"Keyboard Player of the Year!"

"Eric's piano solo spot mesmerized the audience - it was as if you were sitting in his living room..."

“Ragno is a musician's musician...He's also a damn cool guy.”
