I am a multi-instrumentalist and music producer. Since 2011, I have been recording music under my moniker 'Plastic Flowers'. I am usually backed by a live band; for several releases I worked extensively with string quartets.
During high school I taught myself how to play the piano, guitar and drums, and while in college, I started releasing my self-produced material. My debut vinyl release came out in December 2012 via Manic Pop Records and was called ‘Aftermath’. It was a mini EP recorded in its entirety on a TASCAM 414 four-track.
After a number of EPs and singles, my debut album ‘Evergreen’ was released in March 2014 via Inner Ear Records in Europe, and Crash Symbols in USA. Two more albums followed: ‘Heavenly’ in April 2016 and ‘Absent Forever’ in November 2017 -- both released via The Native Sound with worldwide vinyl distribution through Warner/ADA. The rest of my material is available on Spotify or Soundcloud.
I have toured Europe and USA several times, and also shared the stage with numerous artists such as Bonobo, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Still Corners, A.R Kane and others. In 2013, I became the first Greek artist to participate at SXSW in Austin, TX. I have also performed live at the Royal Academy of Arts, Athens Concert Hall & Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
For several years I was accompanied by two close friends of mine, Angelos Paschalidis and Tim Charisis, who backed my project and toured with me regularly. Heavenly marked the beginning of a new phase for Plastic Flowers as it was recorded exclusively at my home studio in London.
On Absent Forever I adopted a heavier guitar sound and experimented with drum recordings’ randomisation on MAX/MSP. I never toured for this album, however, several of the songs will most probably feature in future setlists. Originally, I planned to make this my farewell record, but after its completion I started working on new material right away.
I am now recording my new album, due out at some point in 2021. Its working title is ‘Abandoned Palace/Land of Tomorrow’.
