Nikos Tsop is a blues man from Thessaloniki, Greece, who came to The Netherlands to study the art of the guitar at the Utrecht Conservatorium. He first encountered the blues in Bob Dylan’s music, after which he got into Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and BB King. His excellent guitar skills are modeled after those of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and Doyle Bramhall II.
Back in Greece, Nikos is part of a trio called Deep in the Top, that has released two records and toured through Europe. In Amsterdam, he teams up with a local formation, led by drummer Daniel Camacho.
