Giannis Baxevanis is a Greek sound engineer of great technical and aesthetic skills with vast professional experience both in recording projects and live performances. Having delved into several Eastern and Western musical genres, he is highly specialised in acoustic and natural sounds. Well known Greek artists and groups have collaborated with Giannis both for their discography and their live performances, not only in Greece but also abroad. Giannis considers himself extremely lucky to be working with such exceptional music producers, musicians, soloists and artists, this way having lots of opportunities to develop his skills in a wide range of musical styles, from folk and traditional to pop and rock. His love for the acoustic sound leads most of his aesthetic choices, achieving high quality standards.

It’ s very important for an artist to love their sound engineer and rely on him…
I have been collaborating with the past five years and I wanna say that I feel so safe with him and I rarely attend sound checks.
Cause I’ m sure that he will get the best possible sound for the venues where we happen to play in every time!
