Stereo Mike, one of the Greek artists participating in the Sounds of Greece at SXSW event, talks about his success, as well as his upcoming performance in Austin.
This year marks the first time Greek music will have a presence at the hugely popular SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. The event, which highlights music, film and interactive, has been the breaking ground for many up and coming artists and businesses.
Hollywood-based company Criteria Entertainment has put together a select group of Greek musicians for SXSW 2013, and Piraeus-born hip hop artist Stereo Mike is one of those talents. With major support from the leading green cleaning products manufacturer, Earth Friendly Products, and a newly formed Kickstarter page, the London-based Greek artist is heading to Austin in just a few weeks to perform for the first time in front of a U.S. audience as part of the Sounds of Greece @SXSW event.
It’s no surprise Stereo Mike was selected to participate in the festival. His strong fan base was a defining factor when he was voted the first ever Best Greek Act at the MTV EMA Awards in 2008. To add to his list of talents – including rapper and DJ – he is also a producer and teaches music production at a London university.
