Singer-songwriter Demos Papadimas (guitar/vocals/harmonica/bouzouki) skillfully intertwines American roots and rock ’n’ roll with Mediterranean influences. Based in Northeast Ohio, Papadimas cites among his influences Dylanesque folk, Leonard Cohen’s latter day touring ensembles, and string-bands such as Old Crow Medicine Show as well as garage-blues revivalists like The Black Keys.
Reviewing Papadimas’ work in No Depression, Jason D. Hamad coined the term “Greco-Americana” for his style, considering it “a musical portmanteau inspired by his own background.” Further discussing Papadimas’ craft, Hamad mentions “wistful, philosophical lyrics” which “continue to generate songs that keep the listener engaged and thinking.”
Papadimas' latest release is The Way Up and was recorded by Pete Drivere at Ampreon Recorder in Youngstown, OH. The record is the second of a three-album venture Papadimas embarked upon during the Covid-19 shutdowns of 2020-2021. The first, Live & In Concert, was released in 2021 and is compiled from live shows recorded between 2017-2019.
The third, expected later in 2022, is an album of Greek Rembetiko folk songs, known as “The Greek Blues.”
