Vasilis Xenopoulos and Paul Edis began playing together 20 years ago, when they had both relocated to West London to study. Originally from Greece, Vasilis had just finished studying at Berklee College in the US, whilst Paul had moved South from the Northeast of England. In the intervening years they’ve played numerous gigs together, releasing their first album in 2016, entitled ‘A Narrow Escape’ to critical acclaim.
Their latest recording features original music inspired by the many places they’ve called home over the years.
