Joseph Gkikas grips his guitar and starts crooning, with all his talented might, challenging the innocent and romantic authority of the music he stands for.
This margin of art springs from Arta, Greece, a place where material like this is a pearl in a haystack, rare to correlate so easily with its muse from another era. Concentrating bursts of vitality turn each track into an emotional oldies radio station. Gkikas’ co-band musicians follow his inventive intelligence, so desperately in need to be served in sweet melodica and impeccable style. The passion throughout is commanding redemption for the retro lovers. From crate digger to music-maker the emotive mystery man vocalist Gkikas, catapults his vintage roots in the heavens of an underground Jazz bar or a flashy Jukebox Hut. Sweet summers, sexy hip-swaying, and mono nostalgia crystallize into solid stereo, bringing alive characters and dialogues from a black and white film with a glass of fine spirit in hand.
