Dimitris Agathos, Top 10 Covers: From Elvis To Ed, It Only Takes A Voice

Well, music has no borders, that's what people say. It's amazing how great songs and their vibes travel through place and time. Could Johny Cash, Elvis Presley or Ed Sheeran imagine that a young Greek computer science student could enjoy performing their songs with the simplest of elements, and a passionate voice? Well, I guess this is the beauty and charm of music. Dimitris Agathos is not the conventional wanna-be-a-pop-star man. He's spending hours and hours of studying the songs. Not just the technique, I should say. He's jumping into the meanings, the sentiments, the real substance of songs. In his small studio in Lamia, in his house or a lonely beach of his island, Cephalonia, he's got just a few things to make his music: His guitar, his ukulele, his mobile phone camera, and his deep sensitive voice. Well, there's another thing hidden. His soul. Just listen, and, to explore more, visit his YouTube channel:
