BIO

Coming from the beautiful island of Cyprus, Alexandros' first contact with the drums was at the age of thirteen. Growing up he got involved with the Cypriot music scene by playing with various bands and artists. His early influences varied from pop to jazz to traditional Greek/Cypriot music.

 

His ethnic background inspired him to learn traditional percussion instruments, developing in that way a strong 'Eastern' influence that adds a unique character to his playing. He continued his musical journey in the U.K. where he went to study music, earning a Bachelors and a Masters  Degree in Popular Music performance from 'Southampton Solent University' and 'ICMP' London.

 

During his time in the U.K. he managed to get involved with the English music scene performing with artists such as the 2005 X-Factor winner Shayne Ward, the west-end star Ryan Molloy, BBC introducing artist LST, X- Factor 2018 finalist Lauren Bannon and recording session at Abbey Road Studios with the R'n'B artist SVGA, recording session at Metropolis Studios London for artist Mike Koullas.

 

Currently, he is based in Cyprus where he is focusing in accomplishing his own unique sound, freelancing as a Drummer and Percussionist and offering lessons to variety of levels.
