His piano playing is laid back, very bluesy, jazzy and can be somewhat compared to the great Gene Harris and his powerful and soulful voice which is a characteristic signature of Uros has a mr. Charles feel to it but still different ring to it. Retro but also fresh.

When you see him playing the piano, singing and swaying he always brings the audiences to eruptive applause.

It is very clear that the genius of Ray Charles had the biggest impact on Uros musical expression. Other musicians Uros was influenced by are Nat King Cole, Aretha Franklin, Ben Webster, Dinah Washington, Gene Harris, Erroll Garner, Gladys Knight, Donnie Hathaway, Quincy Jones, David Fathead Newman, Hank Crawford, Billie Holliday, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke and others.
