Dionysis Savvopoulos / Διονύσης ΣαββόπουλοςDionysis Savvopoulos (Greek: Διονύσης Σαββόπουλος) (born December 2, 1944) is a Greek music composer, lyricist and singer.

He was born in Thessaloniki. In 1963 he moved to Athens, terminating his law studies in favour of his career in music. He met great success since his early days as a musician and soon became very popular, both in Greece and abroad.

Savvopoulos has been noted for being politically active throughout his career in music. In 1967, Savvopoulos was imprisoned for his political convictions by the Greek military junta of 1967-1974, led by the dictator George Papadopoulos.

Most of his songs are written by himself (both lyrics and music). He is still singing but no longer composing (since his last CD "The Millennium"). Throughout his career he has sung Greek Rock, Laika (people's music) and Rebetika.

He is married to Aspasia Arapidou, and has two sons, Kornilios and Romanos.
