I am writing to reference Mr. Antonis Skokos, as a great collaborator, musician, composer, arranger, conductor, musical director and pianist that he is.
My name is Dionysis Tsaknis with a long career in the Greek music industry, being chairman of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (HBC), also a well-established composer, lyricist and singer. My professional experience dates back from 1982, having a personal discography of 27 albums and 2 CD singles (1982-2007), as well as more than 20 collaborations with many fellow well-respected artists between the years of 1991 and 2011.
I have been awarded 3 times for my theatrical compositions and songs, while for more than 15 years I have worked together with the most respected composers, singers and lyricists of the Greek music industry, writing music compositions for the theatre and the Greek music scene. In the latest years I have been member of the board of directors and press representative of the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AEPI), as well as chairman of HBC.
My collaboration with Antonis dates back many years ago, having worked together in the composition of music albums and arrangement of live performances. I believe Antonis regards and exceptional musician, meddling beautifully folk and modern sounds in his music.
