about

MANOLIS' recordings combine musicianship and audio engineering science skills for a polished, beautiful result. His inspiration comes from many sources, including great recording artists and engineers through the Pop, R & B, and Funk of Prince, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Hall & Oates. He also draws inspiration from the post-concert tour Beatles and Beach Boys records – when they broke ground with new sounds, new techniques unavailable in concert.

Manolis plays piano and keyboards, bass, guitar, drums, ukulele, melodica and glockenspiel. This wide range of instrumentality allows him to fully accomplish his genre-jumping albums which still seamlessly come together as a whole.

As he articulates, “I prefer the Do-It-Yourself approach on making music and videos, ‘cause I want the listener and viewer to get my point of view on everything.” He carefully crafts the music and lyrics, performs his vision, shooting and directing his own videos and finally mixing and mastering his own work.

Manolis' music videos have more than 750.000 views on YouTube and he is constantly striving to better connect musically and lyrically with his growing audience.

Track Name: Desert of Silence
It's dark out here
but I stand so fearless
Nobody knows
Where I'm going to
A little smile on my face
and a sense of wonder
Words in my mouth
never rang so true

Walking alone in a desert of silence
Clearing my mind, no worries inside
Wind is blowing, taking troubles away
Feeling alive in the desert of life
In the Desert of Silence

My whispering thoughts
might get loud tomorrow
The birth of hope
seems finally real
I can hear my breath
inside my ears
I'm taking a break
in this long distance run

Walking alone in a desert of silence
Clearing my mind, no worries inside
Wind is blowing, taking troubles away
Feeling alive in the desert of life
In the Desert of Silence
Track Name: Will you
I guess I was waiting for someone
To turn my life upside down
There you were, looking so pretty
You, foxy mama, I adore your look so much

I couldn't resist
I'm trippin' on you girl
You are a dream
with flames on your lips
Sparkling eyes
hell of a body
You definitely are
one of your kind

I 'm gonna live the dream
cuz I've been waiting for so long
If U, want to
You seem to know me well
Better than everyone else
it's true, you do
We make the perfect blend
Don't wanna be just your friend
I want more, from you
Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you…. Will you?

I still recall the day that you kissed me
You gave me something to believe in
Stealing time just to be by your side
Waiting for a sign, even a cheesy catchy line

I feel the best is yet to come
Destiny is on its way
I'm full of passion
I feel alive
What you got my baby
is more than enough

I 'm gonna live the dream
cuz I've been waiting for so long
If U, want to
You seem to know me well
Better than everyone else
it's true, you do
We make the perfect blend
Don't wanna be just your friend
I want more, from you
Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you…. Will you?

Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you? Want to?

Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you?

Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you? Want to?

Walk into my life
Take a chance on me
Will you?
Track Name: Gia panta (Forever)
Σταμάτα να κουράζεις το μυαλό σου
με πράγματα ανούσια
Δες την ελπίδα στα μάτια της ψυχής σου
και γέλασε, χαμογέλασε
Χάνεις στιγμές της ζωής σου
με άγχος δανεικό και ψεύτικο
Ο χρόνος είναι δικός μας
όχι εχθρός μας, πες μου γιατί το ξεχνάς;

Κουβέντες του τύπου 'για πάντα'
μαραίνουν το σήμερα για τα καλά
Σε λίγο το αύριο θα γίνει χθες
για αυτό θα ζήσω το τώρα και ας λες (κλαις)

Για μια ανασφάλεια αόριστη
Ζεις σαν εξόριστη, πες μου γιατί
Παλεύεις μέσα στο χάος
που συντηρείς και διατηρείς
Τα λάθη είναι συνεχόμενα
τα ίδια και επόμενα, χωρίς διακοπή
Άλλαξε τη ματιά σου
στο πρόβλημά σου, δες καθαρά

Κουβέντες του τύπου 'για πάντα'
μαραίνουν το σήμερα για τα καλά
Σε λίγο το αύριο θα γίνει χθες
για αυτό θα ζήσω το τώρα και ας λες (κλαις)
