Recent performances include Cyprus World Music & Jazz Showcase, Afro Banana Festival, Fengaros Festival, Windcraft Festival, Farma Project Festival, Moonwalk Paralimni Festival, Street Life Festival, Sarah’s Jazz Club and various live venues and bars.

Jamie Paul (vocals, keyboard) is the songwriter of Trio Frisson and his diverse influence and vast experience can be heard in the depth of the material he creates. His experience as a lyricist can also be found in his original songs, which employ complex rhyming patterns, metaphor, philosophy and above all poetry. Since the age of 12, Jamie has been taking his own compositions to the stage. Working with Jazz ensembles and bands throughout his teenage years in his hometown of Sheffield, Jamie by a young age had built up a varied experience in recording, writing and performing original music. His more recent work demonstrates his diverse abilities – he has written and scored big band arrangements for the live tours of X-factor (Greece) and Greek Idol winners, featured as guest vocalist on the album ‘Music of the Multiverse’ by UK based producer Huw (Rope-a-Dope Records) - and of course, has been the song writing force behind the music of Trio Frisson, who have been showcasing their sound at major festivals, events and on a number of TV specials here in Cyprus.

Byron Athinodorou’s (bass) interest in music and mainly classical guitar and bass started in his early childhood. His passion led him to Greece to study Music Composition at the Ionian University in Corfu, under Joseph Papadatos. After acquiring his BA degree, Byron pursued an MA degree on this subject at the University of York, UK, under Roger Marsh. For his degrees he was awarded scholarships from both Cyprus and Greece State Scholarship Foundation. Later on, he continued his postgraduate studies on Classical Guitar at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus with a scholarship from the university. Byron had also master classes with Leo Brouwer (Composer, Guitarist), Wolfgang Jungwirth (Guitarist), Damian Erskine (Bassist), Yiotis Kiourtsoglou (Bassist) and others. Throughout his career, Byron collaborated and played with well renowned musicians and artists. Most notable are Stavros Xarhakos, Eleonora Zouganeli, Miltos Paschalides, Mario Frangoulis, Alkistis Protopsalti, Pantelis Thalassinos, Antonis Mintzelos, XXI Century Tenors and Eleftheria Arvanitaki. He also performed in various festivals such as Afro Banana Republic, Fengaros, Kypria, Arion (Lesvos) and Solarino (Italy) International Guitar Festivals. He participated in festivals and events in the UK, Poland, Turkey, Czech Republic, Hungary and Belgium.As a professional musician, Byron has recorded for various music productions. Most notable is his collaboration with the two Grammy Awards holder, producer Liam Nolan at Metropolis Studios in London, for the production of Michael Koullas EP Album. He is currently living in his hometown Limassol, Cyprus, teaching and at the same time collaborating with various artists in Cyprus and abroad. Byron is in the bands Trio Frisson, Waterblack and Delirium Elephants, with whom have obtained a MAD Award.

Lefteris Lefkatis (drums) has been keenly involved with drums and percussion instruments since the early age of 12, and has been a member of several music groups covering a variety of styles including jazz, soul, RnB. rock, world and pop. He studied drums and percussion at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory and the University of Nicosia with Elias Doumani and Rodos Panagiotou respectively. He is currently a member of Belua and Trio Frisson and a teacher of the drums and percussion instruments in Nicosia.
