ABOUT

Classical and jazz pianist, singer-songwriter, and guitarist fluent in genres ranging from flamenco to blues, Gio has played at venues like the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Dazzle, and Newman Center for the Performing Arts, and continues to wow audiences across Colorado.

Born and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia (the country, not the state), Gio studied classical piano and oboe through the Tbilisi State Conservatory. The rippling socioeconomic effect of the Soviet Union's collapse, as well as continued occupation of his country by Russia, eventually led Gio's family to relocate to the US. After changing continents, he picked up the guitar, a few other instruments (including accordion, harmonica, bass guitar, flute, and mandolin), studied jazz, and began writing and singing eclectic songs. Gio still loves instrumental music, playing private and public concerts that consist of classical pieces, arrangements of jazz tunes, and his take on flamenco.

In 2020, just before Covid-19 hit, Gio was able to crowdfund $6,121 to record his debut album "Songs of Life and Death". These songs have been described as "Foresty Old-World Folk, with Funky Neo-Soul Moments" and feature Gypsy and Latin sensibilities, as well as drawing from Gio's influence as a Classical and Jazz musician. The album was celebrated at the Denver Performing Arts Complex upon release with a theatrical performance of the music and you can listen to it on all platforms.
