For the past few months I haven't been playing live much, which is the first time this happens for quite a while. Ι've been mainly in the basement trying to compose and demo new material for a solo record and also for J.Kriste, Master of Disguise. It's been tough getting back into writing and finding the space from where to draw inspiration from, but it's been rewarding.
I took a little break from all this to go to Athens and play a lovely duet show at Theatro Porta with my friend Fotis Siotas, with whom we are going to work on his first solo record in the following months.

Then straight off to Paris for my first ever gig there. Thanks to the lovely Alexia and Alex Mentis for inviting me and hosting the nite. It took place at Kibele, in front of a small attentive audience, and I really enjoyed my first encounter with the French! From Paris I traveled to Lyon where I met a bunch of lovely people thanks to my friends Cleo and Benjamin and I'm looking forward to getting back there in July for some shows.

Back in Cyprus now and in the basement for some more writing and recording demos of new material. I want to slowly start rehearsing new J.Kriste, Master of Disguise material with the band and hopefully a gig soon to test drive the tunes.
Still no news on the Plain History or the new Trio Tekke single, although with the latter there's a few international shows lined up in London and France with our friend Dave De Rose on drums. I'm excited about the new sound of the band. Check the calendar for upcoming dates.
