33 Lovers is the brainchild of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stratos Kiris. Born and based in Athens, Stratos was raised in Patras where he started taking music lessons (quartino, clarinet, accordion) at the age of 6. As a teenager he started writing his own songs a few months after his mum bought him a guitar.

In 2006 he formed the band Monovine with Xenofodas Sakellariou and high school friend Sotiris Douvas. They released three albums and were active for 14 years before disbanding in 2019.

Going through an introspective period in early 2020, he began writing songs and 33 Lovers took shape. In the spring of 2022 he released the digital single “Angels Yearn”, featuring various musicians and friends such as Miss Trichromi, Nalyssa Green, Xenofodas Sakellariou, Sotiris Douvas, Natassa Mindrinou, Sofia Sarri and Antonis Andreou.

In the summer of 2022, he recorded the first 33 Lovers album, “Ghost Flower”, in the living room of producer Vassilis Nissopoulos, embracing an indie pop, lo-fi aesthetic. “Ghost Flower” will be released in the fall of 2023 via Inner Ear.
