Niko was born in Northern Greece in a small town outside Drama named Adriani. He realized that he loved to sing from a young age, and his interest in Greek music was very intense. He started working as a professional singer at 14 while attending junior & high school. His young age helped him build his personality as a singer and gain his vocal style.
His higher education is in accounting, but music won him over. He studied Byzantine Music, Speech Training, Vocalism, and “Dimotiko Tragoudi” [part of traditional Greek music].
