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 fuse elements of folk with Eastern European and Latin sensibilities, as well as drawing from Gio's influence as a classical and jazz musician. The album is due to release in 2023.

Production on my debut album "Songs of Life and Death" concluded this year. The live show is a musical performance art piece, featuring a 6-piece band, while I perform the songs in costumes as the Wizard, the Bard, and the Addict to immerse the audience in the thematic content of the album. Release coming soon!
