Evgenia and Nestor have been playing together for almost a decade. Through those years they have built a large repertory covering a lot of jazz standards, bossa novas, blues, funky but also pop tunes with a jazzy twist. They have played from small clubs, to festivals and theaters and from private parties to hotels and special events like book presentations. ​ Evgenia started to play the piano at the age of four and has been an active musician since the age of 13 years old, playing and singing for several groups, along with her classical training as a pianist. Having played classical piano as a solist or member of chamber music ensebles, as a keyboardist in rock groups, but also greek and ethnic music she has an open minded taste in music and strongly beleives that Music is beyond genres, and "stylistic tricks". She started singing jazz later on and she fell in love with the music and the freedom of interpretation, and from that point she decided to focus mainly on jazz singing and playing enriching it with all her previous experience.​
​ Nestor started playing classical guitar at an early age but was curious to see what was beyond that, so he decided to enroll at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he studied jazz guitar (Diploma on Professional Music), and had the opportunity to study with outstanding professors such as Ed Tommasi, Garison Fewel, Ron Savage and play with highly talented individuals from all over the world. After finishing his studies at Berklee he took private lessons on Jazz Improvisation with Jerry Bergonzi. Coming back in Greece after spending a decade in the US he plays either as a band leader or side man in jazz festivals, clubs, special events with various settings.​ ​
Nestor and Evgenia have created the Music Soup Group, wich runs various different projects under this name.
- a drumless trio (piano-voice,guitar,bass) in the style of Nat King Cole's trio
- an organ trio (organ-vox,guitar,drums) combining straight ahead jazz with funky grooves and original compositions and its' main characteristic is that is highly energetic.
​- Duet (piano or organ/vox,guitar)​​ ​ Their collaboration through this particular project is focused on creating music with a cheerful feeling of spontainity, warmth, easyness.
Their live performances are entertaining and relaxing without lacking a musical depth. After playing together for so long the result you get as a listener is a natural breathing of music. ​​
