Born in 1974, Chronik, whose real name is George Papadopoulos, fell in love with music very soon. “I was this little kid with his own notebook writing down all the music he was hearing on the radio, mostly classical and jazz”, he tells. “Later on, as a teenager, I started working for the JazzFm radio station in Athens and being closer to great producers helped me learn more about that art I loved so much. Although at that time I didn’t have any interest in being a musician or trying something by my own. I was pessimistic”. But passion won: while studying Art Conservation and Architecture and attending seminars about photography, Chronik started to experiment with music on his own: “It was a process to discover my hidden charisma”, he reveals.
