Recently hailed by Cleveland's Scene Magazine as #2 on their "13 Bands to Watch in 2013," singer-songwriter Demos Papadimas intertwines American roots music with Mediterranean influences.

Often compared to Bob Dylan, Papadimas himself cites string bands such as Old Crow Medicine Show and The Hackensaw Boys as major inspirations for their rock and roll approach to traditional music.

Papadimas also has been influenced by Leonard Cohen's marriage of American folk and Mediterranean-based World music evident in Cohen's most recent touring ensembles. He has also been inspired by the spirit of Greek Rembetiko music--the "Greek Blues."

Discussing his album Wanderin’ Through the Wilderness, Papadimas states that "[a]lthough the album explores varied musical territory, including back porch Americana, Bob Dylan-esque ballads, Gypsy Tango, and Greek Rembetiko, it is still very much a songwriter's album. The lyrics certainly take the spotlight, even though there are rich musical arrangements and diverse stylistic twists from track to track. I think this is the best I can summarize my style and the approach."
