Biography

In a few words…Lenou is a Swiss-Greek artist, daughter of worldwide sucessful recording artist Nana Mouskouri and reknowned guitarist-producer George Petsilas.

Lénou trained as an actor in London, where she co-founded the Compact Theater Company. Before attending her drama course, she spent one summer studying Shakespeare at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. She then graduated from Arts Educational Schools 3-year intensive acting course, where she discovered she had a true voice.

Offered the opportunity to tour the world alongside her mother as backup vocalist, Lenou jumped at the chance to perfect her skills as an all-round artist. She toured extensively for six years, honing her vocal, performing & songwriting skills, throughout UK and Ireland, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Greece, Cyprus, Israël, Turkey, Morocco, Canada, USA and Australia.

After those years, she embarked on a solo career and soon landed a record deal, then released her debut album « ANY GIVEN DAY » (Mercury/ Universal France).

Following that initial success she recorded a duet with Laurent Voulzy, a cover of the Carpenter’s « Yesterday Once More » on the million-selling album « LA SEPTIEME VAGUE »(RCA) ; the song was also released as single N°2. This led to much touring with him.

Recently, she set out to produce a new album «COMING UNBROKEN», an in-depth reflection of her evolving artistry. She worked with 3 producers on the tracks - including artistic collaboration with Scott Greiner (who also mixed the album), Richard ‘Jack’ Guy and Chris Birkett.

Lenou sought to create a pop-acoustic blended atmosphere. The songs reflect a deep and organic mix of the cultural and musical melting pot influences that her Greek origins, English and Swiss education, French living have given her.

And when she is not busy producing & performing her own music, Lenou continues to put her acting skills to good use in recording voices for video games’ characters.

« Coming Unbroken » is ready to be heard throughout the world.
