Pop idol Antonis Remos was born in Duesseldorf Germany in 1970. He relocated to Greece 10 years later residing in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki. Antonis took up many odd jobs among them was amateur singing in various clubs.
Over the years the music scene mesmerized the brown-eyed artist, who decided to give it his all. In 1995, after several years of singing experience, Antonis decided tried his luck in Athens where he appeared next to Dimitris Mitropanos, Stefanos Korkolis and Mario Tokas. This appearance of his led to a contract with Sony Music that very same year. It was very peculiar however; that even before he started recording his first album a lot of hype was created around his name and his talent.
In 1996, his self-titled album was released. In a few months the album went gold and in less than a year it was certified double platinum status. The charming singer stole the hearts of many, building a name for himself with just his first release; an achievement many desire.
His popularity rose dramatically due to his finesse and wit on stage, which had every music hall he appeared at packed every single night. This remarkable acceptance by the people turned his second album release "Keros Na Pame Parakato" (It/s Time To Move On) gold and almost double platinum status.
In December 1999, many preeminent and established songwriters such as Christos Nikolopoulos, Yiannis Parios, Stamatis Spanoudakis and Antonis Andrikakis penned for Antonis' third platinum release titled "Pali Ap'tin Arhi" (From The Beginning Again); A project that embodies a range of repertoire and musical styles. Christos Nikolopoulos, one of the most eminent composers of Greek popular music, has carved his own history in Greek music and this time he composes two songs for Antonis.
Yiannis Parios, a great and unique singer, chose Antonis as an excellent representative of the new generation and penned the lyrics to one track. In addition, the eminent composer Stamatis Spanoudakis, who has written some of the greatest Greek contemporary songs, wrote lyrics and music for two songs especially for Antonis' voice, one of which gave its title to the album. Finally, another special participation on Antonis Remos' album is by Antonis Andrikakis, who is a very successful songwriter and participated with 3 songs.
