I was born and raised in Athens (Greece) and from the age of 12 I started studying the guitar and practised singing. My roots are mainly rock'n'roll, rock and all the other genres close to them (rock, disco, rock-latin, blues, funk). I love the mentality of “Queen”, “The Beatles”, “Dire Straits”, “The Eagles”, “Fleetwood Mac”, “Gary Moore” and all the long line of the classics that follows...
From the age of 15 I started performing with school rock bands and by the age of 21 I had started working full-time as a rock musician blending my rock sound with various artists and also in studio recordings. By the time I had reached my degree in music I was able to work with many famous Greek artists and I would happily send you recommendation if needed. Having always the mentality of a really good sounding and good looking smiling band that brings people closer. As a band leader I constantly appear in clubs and do lots of touring.
Experience 1. During the Summer 0f 2017 I did 60 gigs for TUI in Zakinthos at their Hotels. 2. In 2015 did a ten month season (every Wednesday) singing at the “Galaxy Bar” of the Hilton hotel in Athens. Note that this was a place that had stopped live acts for 30 years now and they didn't intend on doing any. After the hotel manager Dejan Steiner saw me performing with my project he signed us immidiately for some shows and finally I ended up doing a succesfully ten month season. 3. Active member of “The Beatles Live Tribute Band of Greece” (a.k.a: “The Greekbeats”) (highlight: closing act of “Abbey Road on the river” Beatles festival 2006 Kentucky U.S.A. 4. I have sung and played very successfully, in a huge number of international conventions that take place in Greek Resorts so I am very familiar with the dress, song and behaviour code of places like these. 5. I have steady music cooperations as an orchestrator, list maker, guitarist, vocalist with some huge acts of the Greek discography that still go on for more than one decade now and participated in big festivals and music productions with lots of touring that gave me experience and problem solving attitude. 6. In the video I have created a sound patent in which I play guitar and bass at the same time when singing (NO playbacks or pre-recorded). The benefit of this, is that together with a drummer-percussionist (male or female), I can have a full band sound and I can change the playlist at any time needed. Note that the songs are meddled like a D.J and are mainly from the golden decades of 60's, 70's, 80's, and a touch of 90's and 00's enriched with reggae, disco, latin, and dance.
Other experience 1. I have worked as a song writer for famous Greek singers. 2. I have worked as an english teacher at the central “OMIROS english institute” 3. I have proudly worked for seven years as a Music Therapist at the Central Children's Hospital in Athens and I am also an active guitar teacher and very close to working with kids.
