SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I love singing and playing the guitar and keyboards, and I have recorded more than 100 songs (home and studio). I can read and improvise, and play mostly Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Country, and Ballads. I grew up with Classical music, and have diplomas in the violin, in the Harmony of Music (both with honors), and high level of studies on the piano. Please take a look at my videos uploaded on be (also provided here)!

I am interested in forming a new band or becoming a member of an existing one and being a vocalist (preferably lead vocalist). Playing keyboards and rhythm guitar, depending on the needs of the band, would also be of great interest to me.

My website is vlm1.uta.edu/~akotsif. Please don't hesitate to contact me at alexios.kotsifakos[at] for more details!
