Jaime Smith grew up in Sacramento, studied violin at the New England Conservatory of Music and studied and performed in Greece for more than a decade. Orestis Koletsos, born in Paris and raised in Athens, began playing bouzouki at the age of 15 and has been performing, recording, and writing songs for more than a decade. Joining Jaime and Orestis is Giannis on guitar and vocals. Giannis was born in the village of Kiriaki, Boeotia, in central Greece. His earliest exposure to folk music came from his father, who was a folk singer. This influence, and the constant contact of the local folk bands led Giannis to a career of singing folk, traditional and rembetiko songs.
