Demetrios Katis

About Demetrios Katis: Demetrios was born in Athens, Greece. He originates from a village named St. George (ancient Coronia) in Boeotia which lies to the north of Helicon mountain the land of the ancient Muses and to the east of mountain Parnassus the land of the golden haired Sun God Apollo and his sacred temple of Delphi.
In 1986, at the age of 17, Demetrios first album was released by Polygram. That same year The Greek Lions awarded Demetrios best young composer.
In 1989 Demetrios founded the group "The Exiles". EMI released their self-titled debut album. In 1992 the song "I make a wish" was included in the collective CD/LP project called "Classic Metal Ballads" and went platinum with over 60.000 copies sold in Greece.
Faithful to this kind of music, Demetrios continued composing and recording and in 1996 Harvest EMI also released his CD "Night on The Murs".
The year 2000 saw the release of "The Blazing March, from Genesis to Europe" by Virgin Classics. An epic symphony "The Blazing March" contains narrations & operatic chorus vocals. The lyrics were written by Kostas K. Katis, Demetrios' father. Demetrios was warmly congratulated by many academics, rectors, known scientists and statesmen for the content of this album. In April 2001, the "Blazing March, from Genesis to Europe" was presented to the official hall of Journalist's Union at the Athens Daily newspaper and the president of the Greek Parliament, Mr. Kaklamanis, publicly acclaimed Demetrios for his work. The board of directors of the educational institute unanimously approved Demetris' "Blazing March" to be included as part of the high school curriculum in music.
Currently Demetrios produces & presents his own radio programme : "The Dance of the Danans" on "Athens 9.84 FM". Demetrios Katis also continues to work with major Film music libraries and many of his compositions have been published in London, the U.K. and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Most recently (2005) Demetrios penned a deal with Christopher Devereaux of Devereaux Film Productions to compose the original soundtrack motion picture score for the film "Bronze And Blood".
