A Rockin` Odyssey through six shades of Blue!
“A truly gifted and multi-talented guitar player, singer and writer with a combination of both Greek and American musical cultures, who can project some of the most exciting electric, bottleneck, slide guitar runs, and straight-ahead, solo, down-home acoustic blues. He’s one hell of a player who will continue to carry the torch and keep the blues alive well into the 21st century. His recording work, both in Greek and English, with original songwriting skills, will delight listeners on both sides of the globe.” –Bill Nolan, WPKN-FM, Bridgeport, CT
“Soukis’s amazing guitar playing sent shivers down your spine placing him out there among the best.” –George Zaxaropoulos, Metal Hammer
“Spiros, with his New York-Greek accent, has a true voice of his own. Soukis Blues is some good old rockin’ blues with powerful guitar in the style of early Eric Clapton; earthy vocals with their spice of the Greek isles, in combination with his strong guitar action–the show was delightful.” –Tony Falco, Falcon Music & Art Productions, Inc.
SPIROS SOUKIS Rockin’ Blues with Greek Soul Soukis Blues: The blues spiced with funky grooves, shuffle beats and rock elements, enlivened with European style and the freshness of Mediterranean breezes. Spiros Soukis, a native of Athens, Greece, began his love affair with the blues filtered through the British Invasion and guitar masters Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Robin Trower and Jeff Beck. In time he learned about American slingers like Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Duane Allman and Roy Buchanan. Reading liner notes and recording credits led him to discover the original men behind the music—B.B. King, Freddie King, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, etc.
