William J Tsamis

William J Tsamis

Real/full name:
William John Tsamis
58 (born Mar 13th, 1961)
Place of origin:
United States (San Jose, California)


Tsamis works as a university professor, and is the former spouse of Vidonne Sayre-Riemenschneider.

As a "matter of style", he does not use a period after the middle initial "J".


Tsamis released Sea of Tranquility, a compilation of keyboard instrumentals recorded from 1993-1994, as a self-financed tape in 1996. The album was re-released on CD by No Remorse Records in December 2012, remastered and with extended liner notes from himself, limited to 500 copies.
