Phil Diamond (aka Stefanos - Filippos Diamantopoulos) is a Greek singer-songwriter. Growing up on an eclectic diet of traditional Greek music, the different manifestations of African diaspora, and the undeniable power of rock and roll, it seems to be hard to pin him down musically. Inspired by his rural surroundings he started singing and took up the guitar at the age of 17. It was only one year later that he moved from his birthplace of Evinochori to Thessaloniki, then London and Athens. He formed several groups with whom he performed at every venue he could. He has achieved artistic success in his home country and he is considered one of the best voices coming out of Greece. After some years of songwriting and performing in Greece and in Europe, Stefanos-Filippos’ relocation to Los Angeles was the catalyst for his music career. There he worked with many names of the local scene and worked on original material which was released under the name Adámas. Following the end of the global pandemic, he released music with different groups and in different genres both in Greece and the US.
Lakan is a singer, songwriter, and producer from and currently based in Chicago. Lakan tends to draw influence from many different styles and genres but for this Philippine born son of a singer who was raised in the cold streets of Chicago, soul is the true reflection of the people society most often sees as a problem. With a commanding lyrical ability and a voice that retells stories of love and loss, pain, hope and healing, Lakan personifies that soul.
Having garnered a strong following in Australia & New Zealand, Jamie’s home base and deep roots in SoCal have made him a fixture in the constellation of amazing West Coast talent that orbits through the band’s beloved studio KillionSound. Slick 80’s boogie guitar & gummy bass synths undulate over Orgōne’s notoriously tight pocket rhythm in this effortlessly groovy roller skate jam, with bells twinkling like light glinting off the disco ball as Jamie’s soulfully robust voice beckons the listener to slide & shimmy. Capped off with a catchy outro hook reminiscent of something that might’ve emanated from late-era Funkadelic or UK’s Sault, the band brings their boogiefunk stamp to today’s flourishing soul scene. This is Resonance, this is Orgōne.
