"Behind the Music: Take Time to Thank Engineers"

NSPE member George Karidis, P.E., is passionate about engineering and what an integrated design team can deliver. He’s also passionate about music, and sometimes those two passions mix. When he’s not working as a vice president and a corporate design director in the Detroit office of SmithGroup, he’s half of the singer-songwriter duo Karidia, along with his wife. George recently told the story behind a new song: “Take Time to Thank Engineers.” (See the article in PE Magazine to read the story and to find a link to hear the song.)

Music Critics Say…
“An uplifting and accurate message. Thank you!”

“Nice song, how do I get a copy to play when clients are on hold in my phone system?”

“Sure to reach the Billboard 100!"

(The above quotes are from music critics who are also licensed professional engineers.) - PE Magazine


Our first record -- Love Acoustic -- dropped August 16, 2021, with 12 original love songs.



Karidia (ka-REE-dee-ah) — the singer-songwriter duo of George and Lynn Karidis — lifts listeners with fresh melodies and lyrics that weave together whimsy, reflection, and positivity with understated yet timeless singer-songwriter and folk/Americana flavors. 

Twenty years of songwriting backs their passion for the singer/songwriter craft. Their songs have placed in or won over ten national songwriting contests in gospel, folk, bluegrass and country genres. Assorted guitars, ukes, banjoleles, a cello, and stuff they've found on the way help Karidia make music that folks find engaging — and memorable!

Their first album — Love Acoustic — dropped on August 16, 2021 with 12 original love songs exploring the folk/Americana range with color commentary by fiddle/viola and harmonica stars Rod Capps and Andy Wilson.
