George Soffos was born in Ohio into a family with roots in southern Rhodes. He learned to play guitar as a child, studied with master bouzouki player Giannis Tatasopoulos, and by 17 was an independent headliner in Greek clubs throughout the country.Playing a mix of traditional and popular Greek music infused with some aspects of American rock, Soffos was considered one of the best bouzouki musicians of his generation. He performed with most of the great Greek musicians and vocalists of his era in the U.S. and Greece and appeared on several albums.
