From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Leo Leandros, born Leandros Papathanasiou, was born in 1926 in Astakos, Greece. He 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. 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 very interesting arrangements. He has composed some of the most beautiful melodies of Western popular repertoire, combining Greek Eptanesian sound with a European one. His albums have sold over 120 million worldwide.
