Highly experienced, versatile session guitarist. Collaborated with numerous artists globally, in various genres and ensembles. Excited to work with you and bring life to your favourite tracks!

Having over 15 years of performing and recording experience, I am very confident that I can offer a fresh approach to people's music and help them bring their deepest musical imaginations to life! Growing up as a blues/ rock guitarist, and later studying Jazz guitar and Composition at Berklee College Of Music (Boston) , I am confident in executing and improvising on any given musical setting and style of music. I have lived and worked as a performer and session musician both in the US and London, collaborating with countless artists. Now based in my homeland, Cyprus, I always enjoy bringing people's original music to life and working on every detail to make sure the artist is 100% satisfied!

  1. Review by Abramo Satoshi

    Working with Andreas was an amazing experience!!!
    He is a stunning guitar player, and I'm an extremely demanding person towards my collaborators.
    Forget the relationship between session musician and client, Andreas will play your music as a member of your band!!!
    Great competence, versatility, commitment, willingness, humbleness, these are just some of the qualities that Andreas makes available to those who require his skills.
    This was our first project together but others will follow!!!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Andreas a few years ago when we urgently needed a guitar player for a single we wanted to release in few days time. Honestly the guy did not disappoint and till today me and my associates discuss what a professional and pleasure he was and is to work with. The man is honestly a savant in the 21st Century. Thanks Again Andreas!

    Andreas is one of the most talented individuals I have come across. He is proffesional, dedicated, and brings great input and knowledge in the many projects that we've worked on together. I have worked with Andreas for more than 5 years and everytime, without a doubt he's the missing piece to my tracks! His ability to mold his style to any genre makes him a versitile guitarist that will deliver exactly what you're looking for

    Had Andreas record on several of my own works and I have to say that it's been an amazing experience working with him! Andreas' input has injected tremendous musicality into my works, and to top it off, he has an impeccable work ethic - he gets his work done promptly, and pays great attention to details in his work. Highly recommended if you're looking for a dependable and amazing guitarist!

  6. Review by Mary S.

    I have been working with Andreas for the past 4-5 years on projects from EDM to rock and commercial music and I honestly could not recommend him more!! He is so fast and easy to work with and always understands my vision 100%. Apart from being an insane performer, it is always a blessing working with musicians like Andreas who are also great engineers and deliver really high quality stems. Anything from guitar accompaniment, solos and the most creative guitar effects using pedals etc. he knows how to capture the emotion and tone needed for each track!

    Insane skills in any genre he’s presented with and his talent is out of this world. If you choose to collaborate with Andreas, flawless results are guaranteed. He always puts his own twists and colours in anything he delivers and never disappoints. Extremely professional and reliable. You will only win with a guitarist like him.

    Andreas is an extremely talented and skilled guitarist and a wonderful team member. It has been a joy working with him in a live environment, as well as in the studio for the past couple of years. He has a unique approach to every song and always manages to spice things up. Anyone would be lucky to have such a tutor or band member with so much knowledge and passion for his craft.

    Unbelievable player, who gets the details right. I've both asked for specific things from Andreas, as well as letting him 'do his thing', and I could not be happier. I've now used him on six tracks, and plan to include him even more in the future!

    Versatile and virtuoso guitarist that excels in any genre - jazz, funk, rock, neo-soul, fusion - you name it, this man has got it! Model professional - on time, on point and on the beat, Andreas transmits charisma and chicness, both in rehearsals on stage. Deeply knowledgable, amicable and endearing, he is a quiet force in any group he has played and is a reliable team player. A star shining well beyond the Cypriot skies and the ace in your sleeve to make any gig a memorable night. 5 stars are not enough ⭐️
