Classical and jazz pianist, folk singer-songwriter, and guitarist fluent in genres ranging from pop to flamenco, Gio's shows can hone in on a specific niche or take the listener on a cohesive sonic journey.

Gio is multi-instrumental and plays piano, guitar, accordion, oboe, harmonica, bass guitar, ukulele, hand drums, and various folk instruments, like wooden flutes or the panduri. Born and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia (the country, not the state), Gio attended the children's program at the local conservatory, where he studied classical piano and oboe. He moved to the US at the age of 13, where he picked up the guitar, a few other instruments, and began singing - and later continued his musical education with jazz studies. As an adult, Gio played with various bands and has performed as a solo musician as well. Currently, Gio writes and performs folk songs, plays instrumental sets consisting of classical and jazz music, and is a member of the band "Paradiso".
