Claudio Corona

What they say…


“Paying homage to the funk sounds of the 60s and 70s, Corona manages to bring a fun fresh twist to the genre!”

Reyt Good Magazine


Claudio Corona has been a session keyboard player since he started his career in Italy around 1998, playing various musical genres such as rock, funk, blues and folk, which he absorbed and laid the foundation of his musicianship. He has played, recorded and toured extensively with well-established artists such as Andrea Parodi, Elena Ledda, Tanca Ruja and Elora.

In 2004 Claudio moved to London where, after obtaining a first-class BA degree in Jazz Piano at Middlesex University, he established himself as one of the go-to Hammond organists in the London funk, blues and jazz scene. He has been playing, recording and touring with artists such as Crowd Company, Paul Garner and Chris Corcoran and performing at prestigious venues like the 100 Club and Jazz Café.

In 2020 Claudio co-produced, with Robert Fleming and Alan Evans (drummer of legendary soul funk band Soulive), Crowd Company’s latest album Lowdown. He recorded keyboards at Ironwax Studios and wrote the horns arrangement for Grammy-nominated funk band Lettuce’s horn section for the whole album. One of Claudio’s signature tunes on the album is the instrumental single “Express 76”, which was aired across UK and Europe and raved about by radio presenter Craig Charles on BBC Radio 6 (“Loving It. Crowd Company have knocked it out of the park!”).

Claudio’s first solo EP Laying It Down was released by the acclaimed American label Vintage League Music, featuring Alan Evans on drums, while his first album Imagination Unlimited is scheduled for release in May 2024 on the same label.
