Kalliopi is a pop-rock singer/songwriter from Greece. She recently completed a single called Around the World, including the original track Fire and Sea and a rock n roll version of T.Springfield/C.Westlake song Summer is over, originally sung by Dusty Springfield. Kalliopi has performed in various venues like Betsew Trotwood, Rock Garden, Infinity Club, George and Dragon and the Hope & Anchor. Kalliopi has been writing just great songs and melodies you carry with you. Vocals flow from high ranging, crystal clear, angelic to aggressive, punky and quirky. Shes got a great ear for languages and was natural to find herself writing English and also French lyrics. "You may not have heard of her yet, but with a multi-talented, multi-lingual repertoire, chances are she will burst on to the world stage soon" European Weekly In Greece she collaborated with well-known producer Coti K. in a remake of some of Lena Platonos songs that was released by FM Records. The album was produced by Konstantin B. She put in distinctive airy/breathy vocals, improvising melodies in the song called Roumanian Emigrants, it was a project that went also live at Rodon Club one of the biggest rock venues in Athens. Working as a singer she has basically worked everywhere from piano restaurants and hotels singing jazz, latin and greek music to groovy clubs and live venues singing pop hits, disco, dance - she was lucky to meet some of the best professional musicians around and formed a band called minima. That led to an album of 11 songs released by Lyra/MBI Records. All these guys now were also playing with pop-rock artist Christos Dantis, who had just released a new album and was planning on a tour for its promotion, so it wasnt long until he asked Kalliopi to join him as a supporting act for his concerts and later with her band minima. She appeared with him in hundreds of concerts at festivals, small venues and clubs all around Greece, in Cyprus and Germany.
