“I am forever humbled to be a part of the Chapman Guitars family; they are a great bunch of dedicated people who inspire me to create and improve. Plus, the guitars are pretty delicious too, aren’t they?”
Nick Ioannou is an accomplished blues and rock guitarist, originally from North London, UK. In 2011, Rob Chapman launched the ‘Heart of Fire’ competition to his 30,000 subscribers. Together with Rob, the competition was judged by Eddie Kramer and Misha Mansoor, and Nick was announced the winner in January 2012. This competition win not only significantly increased Nick’s online presence, but secured him a much deserved endorsement with Chapman Guitars.
Nick’s passionate style of playing – an honest, raw and tasteful mix of blues, rock and jazz guitar – has its roots embedded in his love for artists such as Robben Ford, BB King, Blues Saraceno, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Nick’s long-term aim is to work full-time in the music industry and to be affiliated with the products he uses and cares about.
