[edit] Fame Story
From a young age, Petrelis found an interest in music, but never really considered the possibility of pursuing a career as a singer. However, as an amateur, he took part in many live performances from 1998 to 2002, at which point he decided to audition for Greece’s celebrated televised talent show, Fame Story. Petrelis eventually finished third in the competition, behind Notis Christodoulou and Grigoris Petrakos.

From then he became a regular in live appearances across Greece, first with fellow Fame Story contestants and then Peggy Zina, with whom he performed in several concerts in Athens and Thessaloniki during 2003.[1]

[edit] 2004–2006: First albums
In 2004 he released an album of his own, entitled Eihe To Hroma T’ Ouranou. The first track, «To Aima Mou», was written by Phoivos and would become a smash hit. The album sold more than 30,000 copies and went gold.[1]

Petrelis would then release a new album every year for the next three years. The follow-up to Eihe To Hroma T’ Ouranou was another Phoivos collaboration: Thymizeis Kati Apo Ellada, which went platinum. After this album Petrelis became one the biggest star in greek night and leaded many greek clubs (bouzoukia) as a first name.[1]

The following release was a platinum single entitled «Eftihos.»[1] The four songs on the disc were once again written by Phoivos and the title track, «Eftihos», was widely acclaimed.
