Costas Varras is a Greek Guitar Virtuoso and Composer born in 1983 in Athens.
After the Release of his first Album “Overlord’s Perpetual” in 2004 by Sonic Age Records and some special live shows like opening for “W.A.S.P.” at Gagarin Club, his Love and Passion for music leaded Costas to go to live in the United States! In 2006 Costas moved to Los Angeles and in 2008 he graduated from “Musicians Institute” in Hollywood. With a new line up of musicians he performed 10 more shows in L.A. and later he decided to start writing music for his next Album.
The latest release of Costas Varras is the album “NEON-CLASSICAL”. The Demos for this Album began in Hollywood in 2008.In 2009 Costas traveled to England to record with legendary Chris Tsangarides as a recording and mixing technician. However, after they finished working on 10 songs this material never released cause Costas was looking to sign a contract deal with a Major Record Label! Also Maor Appelbaum was featured as the Mastering engineer for these demos.
A few years ago Bob Katsionis encouraged Costas to continue recording and Costas Varras entered the studio to Record more music with Bob Katsionis as the Producer. The album “NEON-CLASSICAL” finally released with 13 songs in 2018 by Symmetric Records. Costas composed all the Music and wrote all the Lyrics. The Album is featuring great singers as: Henning Basse (Firewind, Mayan, etc), Chity Somapala (ex-Firewind, ex Avalon) , Kevin Goocher (Omen), Billy Vass (Terra Incognita), Vaine Bodner and Joseph Michael (Witherfall).
