When time seemed right, they all joined his studio to record their first full band album and let the dynamics of analogue instrumentation to do the work.
The "Sillyboy" project arrived early 2010 with debut album “Played” being released on small indie label Just Gazing records as 001 of their catalogue and ended up as “Album of The Year” in quite a few media outlets of Greece. It launched Sillyboy’s career as a prolific studio producer and even to this day it is considered a classic from many music heads in his country.
However, the international release status was achieved with the follow up "Nature of Things” album in 2012. The track "Supply Chain” won Vinyl District's competition "TVD500" and granted Sillyboy a 7" US release with the label, getting his music aired in indie US regional radio and got the attention of three-time Grammy-nominated producer, Cheryl Pawelski.He returned with his 3rd album “Stalker” in 2015, this time for prestigious label Klik Records and the video for "Do it Again" premiered on Exclaim Magazine (Canada). 2018 marks the return of Athenian producer with a full band. The singles “Come Closer” and "Muscle Cars" reveal what could be his most complete and emotional work so far.
