Evangelos grew up splitting his time between Athens, Greece, and upstate New York. It was while attending high school in Athens that he became interested in the rap scene, picked up paper and pen, and began writing. He credits the poetic works of Tupac as one of his biggest influences.
He later went on to earn a degree in communications at SUNY Cortland, and spent time traveling with a rap crew. In 2005, the group opened for Ludacris at the Binghamton University Events Center. During his time with the crew he learned that rapping entertained the crowd – but singing attracted the ladies. This took him back to his R&B roots, and another huge musical influence, Michael Jackson.
Evangelos writes songs about romance and hope, always with an uplifting message. With his neo soul style, voice that is both breathy and velvety, he has earned instant comparisons to Maxwell and Musiq Soulchild.
