Giorgos Sazotis (GR)

Founder & Director, Violet Crown

Giorgos is a passionate advocate for independent music, committed to dismantling any system that confines art to a mere commodity. With over a decade of experience in the music industry, he’s navigated various roles to comprehend the industry’s intricacies from mixed angles. Born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece, Giorgos’s musical journey began early, nurtured by a household steeped in appreciation for music. His classical training and exploration as an artist laid the foundation for his career. As a teenager, he embarked on numerous music projects, one of which propelled him and his bandmates to seek international opportunities in the United Kingdom. These experiences ignited his entrepreneurial spirit and shaped his perspective, leading him to transition from artist to industry supporter. Since then, he has worked with a diverse portfolio of artists across the globe and companies in the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands. 

From artist management and service companies to immersive roles in record labels, and music publishers, Giorgos honed his skills and crystallized his vision. In his quest to amplify independent voices, Giorgos founded “Violet Crown,” a sanctuary for what he terms “unconventional pop” and a haven for industry “misfits.” As he continues to carve his path in the industry, Giorgos strives to cultivate a more inclusive and vibrant music ecosystem. His vision extends beyond commercial success, aiming to foster cultural impact, provide a platform for artists of all backgrounds to flourish, and reshape the music landscape for creators worldwide.
