Athens, Greece-based Carrot Cake are a jazz group founded by Dimitris Mentogiannis(guitar), Marko Grinover(bass), George Kourelis(keys) and Dimitris Kalonaros(drums), mucisians and friends that got together to share their music ideas. Carrot Cake initially attracted attention with their first album “Transparent”.
They first came together in 2014 when the Dimitris.M, Marko and Dimitris K. met George, in order to track down some piano/keys parts in the “Transparent” album and immediately found themselves sharing common ideas and the same passion and love for creating a new sound.
In the summer of 2014, Carrot Cake released their debut album, Transparent, via Soundcloud. It included covers of music by Led Zeppelin and Snoop Dog and was recorded in an amazing 3 days session @Daskalio,Attiki. Following the album release, the quartet made a big number of gigs and appearances throughout Greece. Their second record, ETHICS II, was released in 2016, this time recorded within just one five-hour session (in PiGi Studios, Glyfada,Attiki) and it introduces a much more mature temperament of the band.
