|Emanuel Kiriakou (Eman) is an amazing musician, singer, songwriter and producer. It seems as if there's nothing he can't do! Here is a short Bio on him borrowed from Emanonline.com. Be sure to check back for more updates when his solo album is released late October!|
"Eman" Kiriakou is a singer/songwriter/producer based in New York City. He
started his musical career at the age of 12 playing in his father's Greek band, and since
then he's been wearing his Greek musical influences proudly. In the early 90's, he
established himself as one of the premier session guitarists in the Midwest and also won a
Clio award for his commercial work. An accomplished instrumentalist, Emanuel recorded over
20 instrumental records, released under the Lifescapes moniker, which have gross sales of
over 2 million units.
In 1998, Emanuel shifted gears and focused on his solo career. He scored a full-length feature film, Achilles Love, set in the Greek-American community of Pittsburgh. Working with such notable engineers as Neil Dorfsman (Sting, Dire Straits), Ross Hogarth (REM, John Mellencamp) and Jason Corsaro (Madonna, Soundgarden), Emanuel recently completed his upcoming debut album Favorite Enemy, currently awaiting release. Songs from Favorite Enemy have appeared in numerous television shows and several major motion pictures: "I Shut Down" was featured in the 1999 Miramax film Teaching Mrs. Tingle (Capitol), "Falling" was in the 2000 Universal film The Skulls (Decca/Universal) and "Wonderfully Strange" appeared in the 2001 MGM film Heartbreakers (RCA Victor).
2001 looks to be a promising year for Eman. He produced and co-wrote much of ex-New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyre's upcoming release Meet Joe Mac (Q/Atlantic), and is about to embark on a nationwide tour. A number of Eman's original Greek compositions are featured in the upcoming Tom Hanks/Rita Wilson - produced feature My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
