Jerome Mazza is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At the age of 8, Jerome taught himself how to play the guitar and sing after being
influenced by guitarist and singer/songwriter, Mark Farner of Grand Funk. 

Playing guitar and singing through his teenage years, he joined his first band at age 19 and toured the east coast in various pop and rock bands. Jerome started to write songs at the age of 25 and was very influenced by the rock band, Kansas, whose music combined classical music with progressive rock. 

While honing his songwriting and his singing, he became a session vocalist including singing commercials in Los Angeles for major corporations such as Coors Beer, Pizza Hut, HBO and several publishing firms. 

In 1990 Jerome became the lead singer for the second album from the Christian metal band, Angelica, entitled “Walking In Faith”.  The album ended up being the best-selling Angelica record. Still today, it’s known as one of the best metal albums in Christian music.
In 2015, Jerome recorded a self-titled solo album in the classical pop style. 

In 2016, Jerome became the lead singer and one of the founding members along with Torben Enevoldsen, of the band, Pinnacle Point. 

In 2017, Jerome contributed lead vocals to multiple tracks on Steve Walsh’s fourth solo album entitled “Black Butterfly” which was released on November 10, 2017. 

Jerome sings lead vocals on three songs (Winds Of War, Now Until Forever, Mercy On Me) and duets with Steve Walsh on the single “Born In Fire”. 

The Outlaw Son Album is available everywhere.

Fusing classic hard rock with the complexity of British prog rock, Pinnacle Point revolves around the songwriting abilities of Jerome Mazza (Ex-Angelica) and Torben Enevoldsen (Fate, Acacia Avenue, Section A). The two met online and started writing together in the beginning of 2016. Their debut album is entitled "Winds Of Change."

The band’s 2017 debut album Winds Of Change climbed the album-oriented rock charts and was voted top melodic rock album of the year for many rock music reviewers.

Book Review

-By Literary Titan

The Rock Star Chronicles, by Ray Shasho, is a splendid book written by a music enthusiast who has poured their heart and soul into it. It’s a story of a boy who loved rock music, and his obsessive passion of it earned himself the name Rock Raymond. He went to school but instead was schooled in all matters of music while his peers were buried chin-deep in coursework. He then became a radio DJ and has now compiled a book on all interviews he held with Rock gods who raided the airwaves back in the 70s and 80s. It’s a compilation of interviews with outstanding vocalists, legendary guitarists and crazy drummers in the rock music scene. Each interview gives a reader an in-depth view into their personal lives and the philosophies that guide their lives which all serve to humanize these great icons. For readers who are old enough to call themselves baby boomers this book will bring old memories back to life. Millennials, on the other hand, may think of this book as a literal work of the Carpool Karaoke show.

The Rock Star Chronicles is a book I didn’t know I was waiting for. To come across a book that will talk me into trying something new. One brave enough to incite me to venture into new frontiers. This book made me a believer- I am now a bona fide Rock and Roll music fan.

Ray Shasho masterfully gets the interviewees talking. He smartly coaxes answers from them with crafty questions designed to get a story rolling out of them. The artists talk about diverse issues ranging from music, politics, and their social engagements. Having been on the music seen all his life, Ray Shasho knows the buttons to press, how to get them comfortable about talking about their lives.

The book’s cover is befitting of its subject matter with the leather look offering a royal background to the golden letter print. It speaks to how high a level rock music holds in the pecking order- arguably, modern music as we know it has originated from blues and rock music.  The second noteworthy thing is the use of high definition pictures to reference the musician being interviewed in every sub-chapter. This ensures that the book is for both original rock and roll lovers and aspiring new ones. Together is makes for a refreshing and consistently enjoyable read.

I recommend this book to rock music enthusiasts, aspiring musicians wondering what it takes and all readers curious to learn new things by going back in time.
