Biography

Leo Leandros (born 1926 as Leandros Papathanasiou), is a Greek musician, composer and producer. Born in Astakos, Greece, Leandros left in the 1950s for Germany to pursue a career in singing and composing. He had some success, but shifted his focus to his daughter, Vicky, who had been singing from a very early age and turned out to be the real treasure. He became her manager, composer and producer when she was 13, and is responsible for her unique training and career. Leandros composed and produced for many other artists such as Julio Iglesias, Demis Roussos, Nana Mouskouri, among others. His compositions are very lyrical with interesting arrangements. He has composed some of the most beautiful melodies of Western popular repertoire, combining Greek sound with a European one.
In 1983, he retired but returned exclusively to the studio in the early 1990s for 3 albums with Vicky Leandros. His albums have sold over 120 million worldwide. A low profile personality, Leandros avoids public appearances.
