Demos Papadimas (from the album The “Lucky You” E.P.)
Greek Rembetico is a style of music that surfaced in the 1960’s when varied forms of urban Greek music were drawn into a common genre. The stories mirrors the lives of the Greek people, speaking to their souls, reflecting the trials and tribulations….the Greek Blues. Demos Papadimas incorporates the Mediterranean influence of Rembetico into his songs, blending European influences with a heartland Roots music developed in his Ohio homebase. Demos Papadimas releases an E.P. of the blending of styles with The “Lucky You” E.P., his band a ‘truly collaborative effort’ as Demos adds to his guitar, harmonica, and bouzouki with a solid rhythm, an additional guitar, and violin.
Country rhythms open the E.P. as Demos Papadimas waves goodbye and wonders the fate of a friend in need of room to move on with “Still the Same” and boards a fast-track beat to wrangle “Tension in the Air”. The world can be a weary place and Demos Papadimas accurately casts shadows on our daily lives in his songs. The stories on The “Lucky You” E.P. have words that support and inspire, and at the very least pull wayward souls back from teetering over the edge. Demos Papadimas quiets the instrumentation to offer advice on the title track and structures “Somehow” as an audio example of his style blend while The “Lucky You” E.P. exits on a live track with “How Long”.
