He has released four albums in the last four years, and is widely considered to be Greek music’s next big singer. From a young age, Petrelis found an interest in music, but never really considered the possibility of pursuing a career as a singer. However, as an amateur, he took part in many live performances from 1998 to 2002, at which point he decided to audition for Greece’s celebrated televised talent show, Fame Story.

Petrelis eventually finished third in the competition, behind Notis Christodoulou and Grigoris Petrakos.

Petrelis would then release a new album every year for the next three years. The follow-up to Eihe To Hroma T’ Ouranou was another Phoivos collaboration: Thymizeis Kati Apo Ellada, which went platinum.
