Ariel Pozzo

 


Biography and Partial Discography

Ariel Pozzo was born in Rosario, Argentina. In 1984, after moving to Buenos Aires, he entered the studios as a sought-after studio guitarist and began recording with the most popular local and regional artists for major labels including BMG, Sony, Polygram, Universal, etc., as well as becoming an in-demand producer for rock bands and a clinician/endorsee for companies such as Fender, Washburn, Crate, Ibanez and Morley.

A versatile musician with a strong rock & pop flavor in his playing, Ariel is renowned for being a "connoisseur" of tone, and his guitar sound has gained national recognition for him.
