Originally from Athens Greece, Tassos Spiliotopoulos lived in London for over 12 years and now shares his time between Stockholm, London and Athens. While in London Tassos quickly became a part of the UK Jazz scene and worked with many of the country's top musicians. He also studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (Mmus) and Trinity College of Music (Bmus, Hons).
During the past few years Tassos has been touring with his own band as well as numerous other creative projects, performing in clubs and festivals in over 15 countries in Europe, America and Asia. He has worked with artists such as Kenny Wheeler, Gary Husband, Asaf Sirkis, Tim Garland, Dimitri Vassilakis, Eileen Hunter, John Parricelli, Mike Outram, John Etheridge, and more. In 2005, Tassos formed his own quartet with three of the most talented musicians he has been playing with, Asaf Sirkis, Robin Fincker and Yaron Stavi.

The Quartet's first album 'Wait For Dusk' was released by Konnex Records in 2006. Tassos is currently leading a new trio with Asaf Sirkis and Yaron Stavi and in 2010 released the new album 'Archipelagos' on F-IRE records. The album also features special guests Kenny Wheeler and John Parricelli.
