Michalis knew from the early stages of life that he had a passion for music. He started playing the piano at the age of 7, was trained how to play the guitar at the age of 9 and for the last 15 years is a self taught bass guitarist and this is what earned his devotion at the end. He decided to attempt and graduated from the Music School of Corfu, Greece and later he studied music theory and harmony in Athens. The first rock band he participated in as a composer and a guitar player, was at the age of 13. Since then he never stopped composing and creating music inspired by rock, metal, classic and traditional Mediterranean music.
 

He always liked the Cretan music and that is what lead him to the island of Crete in the first place, where he met Dimitris and Trikalero. From the very first jam he knew that they will match. He always had the vision of a not stereotyped music, influenced by the traditional music and poetry mixed up with modern sounds, and he has eventually found the mandatory space to express himself. He has never stopped learning, studying and improving himself.
