Logout is a singer songwriter and producer. He started performing in 2007 together with the band The Place Within in Patras, Greece. In 2010 he started performing as a solo artist.
His latest album ΕΔΩ/ΕΚΕΙ was released in October 2020. It is his first album featuring lyrics in his native language, Greek. It was his most widely acclaimed work to date making it to most of the end of the year Greek Indie lists.
His releases are always different from one another, as each one takes on different production challenges, from straightforward folk to lo-fi indie and electronic instrumentations.
Live performances are a similar story, with the setup changing every time, sometimes using natural instruments and a band, sometimes relying on live-looping, samples, sometimes combining the set with digital video art and sometimes not.
He is currently working on two albums, due to be released within 2022
Eleni Vougioukli: song, piano
Souzana Vougioukli: song, piano, guitar
Alexis Apostolakis: drums
Christos Tsaprazis: bass
Eleni and Souzana Vougioukli, two world music performers from Greece, started exploring global music very early and went on to experiment with the potential of human voice as an innate musical instrument. With specific emphasis on the original language and appropriate respect for pronunciation and articulation of each individual form, they sing in more than 20 languages and dialects a cappella or accompanied by piano, guitar and percussions, instruments they play themselves.
Their repertoire consists of traditional songs of various ethnic groups: rebetika and traditional Greek songs in all dialects including that of the Greek speaking community of Southern Italy, Portuguese fado, Spanish, Sephardic, French, Italian, Turkish, Arabic, Armenian, Gypsy, Serb, American blues and jazz, Romanian and Bulgarian as well as their own compositions.The two performers are characterized by an indigenous authentic and explosive theatricality and passion
Pavlos Pavlidis and Hotel Alaska
Pavlos Pavlidis, one of the most noteworthy representatives of the Greek alternative music scene, is heading to Pulsar Festival 2022.
Following the release of his new album "To Mavro Kouti" in December 2021, Pavlidis is touring with his new band, Hotel Alaska.Songs from Pavlos Pavlidis' entire discography, from the era of Xylina Spathia until now, are reimagined with a spirit of experimentation, acquiring a fresh image and new dynamic. This creates a musical continuum between Pavlidis' and his companions' past and present on stage and in the creation phase, reaching an exceptional musical result that extends from mystical to explosive, and offers us the opportunity to discover his work from the beginning
