His studies in guitar, piano and harmonica earned him a Music Theory degree from Athens Conservatory. He performed and toured with the late, great Greek rock legend, Pavlos Sidiroupolos then moved to Stockholm, in the mid ’80s, where he continued performing live while teaching music and earning another degree, in Musicology, from Stockholm University. Returning to Athens in the early ’90s, Spiros formed the band, That’s Why, performed widely, recorded regularly and toured extensively. That’s Why opened for a diverse group of musicians ranging from The Pixies to Peter Green–one of his earliest influences.
Spiros moved to New York City in 2003, when the U.S. Congress declared it, “Year of the Blues.” One year later he released “Transblues,” his first English-language CD. Recorded in both Athens and his newly adopted city, the record consists of eight of his own songs on which he sings and plays guitar. Two smokin’ blues covers, captured live in the heart of Manhattan, round out this auspicious American debut. Spiros creates soundtracks, scores music and does audio design for a variety of media–including documentary films, travel shows and video games. He’s also a frequent guest on radio shows like “Antique Blues,” WPKN-FM, in Bridgeport, Connecticut and Montauk, New York; and “Something Inside Me,” WKCR-FM, at Columbia University. A gifted musician/performer, Spiros is also a dedicated teacher to a large number of private students, beginner to advanced–some of whom are invited to participate in the regular master jam sessions Spiros hosts in his Times Square studio.
