George Alkaios, born George Vasileiou in Athens on December 24, 1971, embarked on his musical journey after showing an early interest in both music and athletics. After a brief stint in Boston, Massachusetts, due to his family’s relocation, Alkaios returned to Greece where his career in entertainment began to take shape. His initial exposure to the broader public came through his participation in a Greek reality show in 1989, which paved the way for his entry into the music and theater scenes.

Alkaios’s career in music officially kicked off in the early ’90s, with his debut album “Me Ligo… Trak” released in 1992. This album marked the beginning of a prolific period for Alkaios, as he consistently released new music, capturing the attention of the Greek audience with his unique blend of pop infused with traditional Greek and Eastern elements.

Following his debut, Alkaios released a series of albums annually, with “Ach.. Koita Me” in 1993, “Den Peirazei” in 1994, and “Entos Eautou” in 1995, each building on the momentum of his career and establishing him as a significant figure in the Greek music industry.

His musical output continued unabated with the release of “Aneu Logou” in 1996, followed by “En Psichro” in 1997, demonstrating his versatility and depth as an artist. In 1998, he released “Ichoi Siopis”, and in 1999, “Syrmatoplegma” came out, further cementing his status in the music scene.

The turn of the millennium saw Alkaios exploring new musical directions with the release of “Pro Ton Pylon” in 2000 and “Oxygono  in 2001. In 2002, he took a slightly different approach by releasing an EP titled “” Karma”, showcasing his ability to innovate and adapt to the evolving music landscape.

In 2003, Alkaios released “Kommatia Psychis”, followed by “Aithousa Anamonis” in 2004. These albums were succeeded by Alkaios Live Tour in 2005, offering fans a taste of his dynamic live performances. His subsequent albums, “Nyhtes Apo Fos” in 2006, “Eleftheros” in 2007, and “To Diko Mas Paramythi” in 2008, showcased his continued evolution as an artist.

The year 2010 was particularly notable for Alkaios, as he represented Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “OPA!”. He reached the final and even an 8th place there, in addition to releasing the album “Dos Mou Ligo Fos”. He continued to release new music with “Deja Vu” in 2011 and then took a brief hiatus before returning with “Marionetes” in 2015.

In 2021, Alkaios made a significant comeback with three albums: “Mosaic”, “My Utopia”, and “Zero Room71”, demonstrating his unwavering passion for music and his ability to remain relevant in the industry.

Throughout the years, Alkaios also released several singles and EPs, including “Pnevmata” and “Ta Magika Sou Chilia” in 2016, followed by “Mia Psychi” and “Ligo Fos” in 2017.
