Leon of Athens has submitted his complete proposal to ERT, in order to bid for the Greek representation in the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, fully confirming our coverage earlier this summer, which had the artist interested in flying the Greek flag at Eurovision 2023.
What does Leon of Athens’ proposal include?
His proposal includes a happy, up-tempo track with a retro mood. We’d say that as a genre it belongs to British pop, and could be a Harry Styles song.
The creation of the track belongs to him, and to David Sneddon, both creators of Katerina Duska‘s Better Love.
If Leon of Athens is chosen as the Greek representative, the master of the genre Fokas Evagelinos will take over the direction, Ilias Kokotos the general management of the project and Dimitris Kontopoulos will be the sound manager during the rehearsals, just as happened with Amanda.
Who is Leon of Athens?
Leon of Athens is 35 years old. Besides being a performer, he is a composer and lyricist. In 2019, he was among the creators of Better Love, the song with which Katerina Douska represented Greece at Eurovision that year.
He started playing classical guitar at the age of 6 and at the age of 15 he created his first band “The Secret Show”. Although he was born and raised in Athens, he has spent a lot of time between America and London over the last 10 years, with Greece remaining his great love.
Timoleon Veremis was born in London and studied at one of the best music schools of Los Angeles. Another greek nominee with a solid education.
Leon of Athens is owned by the Cobalt record label. Below you can listen to one of his latest songs:
