George Sakkatos, otherwise known as Gio from Greece and is only 22 years old. From a young age, Gio started to play the guitar and has been writing original songs since he was 16 years old. Gio has also played guitar for a couple bands and is currently working on his social media presence. Gio's call is to start uploading covers so he can eventually upload some of his original works. Make sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel to keep up with new covers he uploads!
Bon Iver’s “Skinny love” is what Gio covers in this video. Bon Iver is an acoustic indie folk group that primarily uses acoustic instruments such as guitars and banjos. It is a really beautiful and raw song and it is widely covered with only a guitar and single instruments. Gio accompanies himself beautifully with this cover has a nice voice to listen to. The song is so simple, but yet so powerful and Gio has the talent to fulfill those expectations. Gio has a lot of musicality and brings his own dimension when covering songs. Geo is a do it yourself musician at his finest, by taking initiative and putting himself out there. Gio has a lot of potential and it is shown through even his covers which is something to take note of. This is a wonderful and talented rendition of Bon Iver’s "Skinny Love", and sometime in the near future, Gio will have tracks of his own!
