My name is Chris and I am the founder member of The Amadeus band, my own love affair with music began very early on in life, as a child I was so fascinated by the power of music, the way it works on the mind and heart, it still remains an enticing mystery, I knew back then how much I wanted to be a musician, to play in a band to be a singer, to perform on stage, to be like the heroes who I grew up listening to watching on TV, so I started guitar lessons and as soon as I could play two chords I was jamming at home with my brothers, friends & musicians all with the same dream.
Soon after I knew how to play and sing a few songs, I was doing gigs at my school performing with the school band. I got involved in the Greek music scene and started gigging with most of the Greek musicians who were on the circuit at the time, of which are still my close friends today. I played at countless Greek weddings and other functions and formed my first Greek band. I got involved in recording music early on as I was helping a friend set up his professional recording studio and worked closely with him and picked up a great deal of knowledge in old school mixing and the use of analogue sound equipment, I have my own studio at home and love to write my own songs. I am still thrilled today to be performing in front of a live audience as I was when I first started!
