Soulful indie pop music artist ACHILLEAS SPAIS talks of his music, both new and old, with plans to release his debut album real soon. See what else is talked about from right below.

1. Please tell us a few words about you musical trip up to date

I started out as a pianist and studied Environmental Economics in London and Vienna before returning to Greece to pursue my music career. Active on the Athens indie pop scene, I have played in front of large crowds at various charity events and festivals including the 2019 Greek Climate Change Symposium. For certain periods I have also been regularly performing in clubs and music stages. My releases have been broadcasted on popular Greek radio stations and I have also appeared on the Voice of Greece in 2021.

2. What’s your music mission?

My mission is to bring motivation, restoration and companionship to people out there seeking for hope. With my music and other actions (e.g. policy research), I wish to change this world for the better by contributing in global efforts to confront the climate crisis. Throughout this journey, whenever things go wrong I always try to remember one thing.. The future has a great sense of humor.

3. Where are you based and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I’m based in Athens, Greece, and the music scene here is mostly consisted of artists and bands that play folk Greek music. There are however a few local artists/bands that create more contemporary sounds with influences from abroad and I would highly recommend them. Among them there is Monika, Good job nicky and Leon of Athens.

4. How would you describe your style?

I would describe it as soulful indie pop music rich with bluesy melancholy, funky optimism and jazzy harmonic experimentation.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

As a solo artist, I have released 4 singles and a fifth one is on the way!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

At the moment I am working on the orchestration of two new songs of mine that will be recorded in early 2023.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

I recently started busking in downtown Athens once a week! The idea is to keep on doing that as long as the weather allows and throw some live shows at popular music stages as well.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a musician?

To write, record and release a full album along with moving to London and introducing my music to the local ecosystem.

9. Where can we listen to your music and where can we buy your stuff?

My music can be found on all digital platforms (Spotify, YouTube, Apple music, Amazon music etc.).

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The color of my voice and a few melody lines.
