Interview with STELIOS VENTAS

We sat down with Stelios Ventas to talk about his start in music, fun stories in the recording studio and much more! Be sure to check out Stelios Ventas music below after the interview!


How did you get your start in music?

My start in music was as a listener. Since I was a kid I was interested about discovering new music. Later, I started playing the guitar and became a member of a local school band. That was my first experience as a musician.

What type of music did you listen to while growing up?

My parents use to listen to greek music, but they also had some pop, rock and electronic music records. So I had the opportunity to hear from Michael Jackson and Cindy Lauper, Rod Stewerd and Pink Floyd to Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre. As a teenager I get into hard rock and metal music with Black Sabbath, Dio, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Saxon etc. Later I descovered blues, country, R ‘n’ R, fynky but my all time favorite is rock. I’m a rocker.

What are fun stories you can share while you’re in the studio recording music?

In the studio, it’s not so fun because we have to work in order to achive a good production. The joy comes from creativity. But in live gigs can happen anything; from playing drunk to destroying your intrument. On stage you can feel what rock means!

What is your latest song or album you can share with us?

My latest album is “Badass”. It contains ten tracks, ten rock stories. You can find it at bandcamp, spotify, i-tunes, apple music, youtube etc
