Listeners

Here are a few messages from listeners around the world who have been touched by my music and I am so very grateful they took the time to share their thoughts and feelings. If you have been touched please drop me a line as it’s always nice to know who is on the other end listening.

Niko is a rare treasure to all who find him. Our family was introduced to his beautiful world 13 years ago and from the first moment of listening to his music we were captured and enraptured.  He embraced us in a time of great distress and loss bestowing on us the most regal gift of dedicating his song “You’re In Heaven” to our son Nauveau and making an incredible video to go along with it for his “Love” cd. Words can’t even begin to reveal how we are and will forever be touched by this man. It’s a Mother’s dream, that in the loss of her child, their name and story never be forgotten. I can’t thank the Lord enough for bringing Niko into our lives. We have still yet to meet him face to face, but look forward to when we do. When one enters this website they will quickly discover freedom to worship God, hope, comfort, and being touched heart and soul with what every human being longs for the most…..love.

Niko your music is so beautiful and healing! You are one of a kind! I may be your biggest fan. Seriously. I fell in love with your music the first time my dad blasted your CD in our living room back in Israel. I was 11 years old. I never stopped listening to your music since. Can’t get enough! What i’m trying to say is that: Please keep on creating & releasing more music! PleAsE!!!!!!!  🙂 Music is what matters.

Niko is a rare artist. His interest in music is not driven by the glamour of the music industry, but from everything he feels around him, the love, the kindness & romance in people, the desperation, the hope, the fun in life. Apart from his amazing talent in both composing and singing, he has the charisma to sing from his heart, touch and heal souls and inspire people with his music. Not exactly an everyday guy you run into ! I encourage all people out there to listen to his music and maybe he will speak to your hearts too! :)

I believe that every person is born for a reason, every person has a mission to accomplish, and I believe in your mission, the mission to spread Hope and Love through your music, this world needs it, it needs Hope for the ones who have lost it and Love for the ones who don’t know what love is, for the cold hearted. And your music Niko has got it all: Happiness, Hope, Love, Joy, Peace, it got a feeling that when you listen to it you just can’t let it go and you can’t get enough and you keep repeating the tracks over and over and listen carefully and with every time you hear it you discover and feel something new.

The world is such a strange place, the way I got to know you, is through a simple message through MySpace  that had the word Lebanon, I still wonder ’till today, if it hadn’t the word Lebanon would I ever checked this message or simply deleted it??? But Destiny played its role and I got introduced to your amazing music through this simple message…

I’m proud to spread your music because it deserves to be spread!

Niko is a man who speaks from his heart. Niko is a true man. I’m not talking about our frindship or the fact that he is Greek, I’m talking about the artist Niko – his soul, his personality, his perspective…

When I met you Niko, it fits perfect to my thoughts, to my soul, to my being. I believe in you and your music. When a man tries to reach for his dream, he fights for his life. And I feel it is my duty to help you fullfill your way to your dream. I will always encourage you, I will always support you, I will be always by your side as a true friend. You are like a brother to me. You will always be the special one.

For me, I knew it from the moment I heard you, THAT is my sound… I found finally the sound that represents ME! It’s what is inside of me, the same colors of my dreams. I played the Love CD and then watched the Love DVD. Niko, no other musical artist has done something like this! All your descriptions, your words, your moments, EVERYTHING! You’ve given us all your Life! I feel I have you Niko in my home now! I have you in my home! And like you say in your song The Special One, now it’s my turn to say it, “I feel so Blessed, just to know you”!
Every song of you is written for some reason, each has a purpose, a meaning, a deep message. You have a very very pure and clear voice! And the way you play your musical instruments… you play rightly, SO stable, clear and so nice!!! You hold our attention. You touch me. You know music, and music knows you. You have music in your being! This is what I heard when you were playing live on LOVE radio. Passed by us inside and stayed! One special voice, one special man, one special heart.

I feel very honored and blessed to be a part of Niko’s vision. It’s very uncommon to find anyone anywhere with as much love, humbleness, strength, determination and a huge heart such as Niko has. Niko is truly a god-sent. He has the gentleness of an angel but the strength of a warrior, what a special and unique combination! This is how I know he will succeed in his mission, his mission to touch the world and to touch the hearts of the faithless, the discouraged, those who are hurting and afraid.

Niko, you will never know what you did for me the day you sent a friend request to me. I was one of the ones who were beaten down with no hope for tomorrow, through your music and friendship you touched me, your words made me feel once again, you broke through to me and gave me hope and a little bit of heaven to hang onto, you also told me to follow my passion for music, that I shouldn’t be afraid to listen to what’s in my heart, for it is my destiny. No one has ever told me anything so moving as that and no one has ever been as helpful. You are so caring to everyone. Your music is also not for yourself but for the world. I think it’s wonderful how you are influenced by your love of nature, children, love. You are love and you are music and listening to you is so soothing, the best medication for the soul! I know a lot of music but never has anyone been so talented and true as you, for whatever you do comes straight from your heart and a higher power shines through all that you are and all that you do! No one will ever hear more beautiful meaningful lyrics, a more beautiful voice full of passion and strength or a more beautiful, generous soul than what you possess! You touch the world in a magical way! Thank you Niko for being a great man, a great friend and a great musician for standing up for all that is right and giving us all of you. I love you Niko and I will always support you!

Hello everyone! My name is Mina and I am very honored to be a part of Niko’s vision, his hope and unconditional love for humanity.

Niko is truly one of a kind, unlike any other artist I have listened to. He has given me so much love, hope and inspiration through his music and his writings that keep touching my heart and soul. Niko is a beautiful gift from God! There are so many people in this world not knowing what their purpose is and not knowing why or what they were given to accomplish but God has given Niko the insight to know and the drive to accomplish it. His vision is inspiring. His destiny, unavoidable. Niko’s heart is pure and his hope is unwavering. Niko will succeed and many will be blessed because of his God given gift as I have been. He is such a beautiful loving soul.

I dedicated a fan page to my beautiful friend Niko so I can share his music and writings of love and hope with others. If Niko, his music and writings have touched your heart as mine has been touched then please feel free to share Niko and his God given gift with others as I and many others have done. If I can help in any way please do not hesitate to write me.

Niko, I love you and will always be here to support you.

I met Niko in 2005 at his first live gig here in Nashville. His music and performance was unlike anything I had ever experienced. It was from another dimension. My passion for his music and vision is unspeakable. He is a mouth piece to the world through his passionate expressions. In general, most of his work is about love, and that my friend is what our God is – Agape in one facet or another. Such as each song is like a facet etched in a perfect diamond which reflects a different brilliance or color dispersing the light in its own unique excellence.

I just want to encourage whoever may be reading this, if you ever asked to be a part of something grand, such as I did a week before I met Niko with my arms open wide speaking these words into the heavens, “Send me, use me for whatever you need… Let me be your feet, you’re hands… I will go”, well let me tell you, he took me upon my offer and he hasn’t let up since! You have that opportunity, the doors are open to you, the choice is yours to be part of something that will (and is!) shake the world! To feed those hungry for love and truth. To give hope to the hopeless, dreams to the dreamless… through the art of music from a beautiful voice, and spirit. If you feel it in your heart, join with us!

I am honored and excited to be a part of this vision… I want others to feel and see the love and message our Creator desires to expresses to us through this gift that has been bestowed upon my dear friend Niko. I couldn’t imagine anyone more beautiful to have been chosen to have such a gift in his spirit as Niko, and he holds it with the utmost honor and humility.

I love you Niko, and you know I’ll always be here for you!

In a world torn by conflicts and wars, comes Niko’s music to bring peace, love, and understanding. It’s about time an artist spoke out! An artist with a sincere message and a clear cut goal: Music, a message in itself, to humanity, humanity as a whole, not a certain race or a certain sect! I had the privilege of having Niko add me on MySpace, I heard his music and was instantly touched to the core, I read his writings and saw deep into his soul. We wrote each other a few times and became instant friends, I was touched by his affection towards my homeland! Ever since Niko has had an effect on me, he was not just an artist I liked, he was much more, so I promised to do whatever I possibly can to help spread his music/message in my own country, Egypt, and the world. I would simply describe Niko as one of the most humane persons I ever came across. He has a heart that feels, beats, and bleeds. May you be blessed Niko and may all your dreams come true, and may I get to meet you soon when you come to perform in Egypt :)

Much much love,

Mirette

Niko has truly been a blessing in my life! I will never forget the day I was led to find him. My life changed! He is truly God sent. I love the transparency that is revealed within his heart, mind and soul! He is chosen and called to give a message of hope and love to the world; to those who have never known love, and to those who have never had hope. How beautiful is this! God has called all of us to become one, unified in His Spirit, and has given us a role to play in destiny. Here we are, a group of WARRIORS with a God-given purpose to accomplish great things – helping, praying, working, reaching out to others! We can only make a difference if we believe.

Niko, I will always be here to support you.

Love,

Someone, a stranger, sent me a message on social media. It was my introduction to Niko. I was skeptical at first because of all the other artists who had sent friend requests, bulletins, etc.

But….there was something different about this one. I read his blogs, I listened to his music, I watched the Love dvd. I let go of my skepticism, and began to embrace the concept, the vision, the mission.

The things that I had believed for so long, were being beautifully expressed by this person that I didn’t know, but felt I knew.

The journey has been sweet, and the people who are also traveling this spiritual path, are of a kindred spirit. It’s a warm satisfaction to know that others share the vision of a better world full of love and optimism.

If you’re reading this, there’s a message just for you. It goes beyond the words in writing. Listen to it carefully…

Peace, Love, and Friendship,

I could say many things about Niko, but none of them would be enough. From the moment I first saw him, I was drawn to him in a way unlike anything I had ever experienced in my life. After seeing him, I went and found him in an internet café in my city and as soon as he walked out, I introduced myself. Little did I know that my life would never be the same. His music, his writings, his lifestyle… captivated my soul and made me see life with a different perspective – a much broader perspective, one of possibility and without limitations.

And so, I am doing all that I can to help him. His vision is my vision, to help make a positive difference in the world.

Hello my name is Jumpy, I am from Modesto, California. I have a wonderful cat named Sunny Paw. I am Deaf myself and feel music through vibes. Also, we use our hands to sign language through music. It’s a really beautiful sight to see sign language. It feels so great to feel different beats. I really admire Niko’s songs because they have wonderful words in them to express everything. I grew up with music and it’s fun to play around with it. Niko is a great man and has a big heart for everyone. He is like a great friend and brother to me. He found me through myspace and we’ve gotten to know each other more through his music and my deafness. It’s really wonderful to learn something new!

Music has always played a big part in my life. I can’t live without it. Always a bit of an outsider myself I never went for the mainstream music my friends liked ; ).

It is not often you come across a piece of music that really moves you, touches your soul, inspires you, will release you and brings a smile to your face. Niko makes you really feel what the song is all about. I have felt all the raw emotions he went through and they feel so familiar. And the music comes with an important message to the world! I think I found a friend in you.

Nomally when you become a fan of a band you can never get close to them. I was pleasantly surprised when he actually answered my emails,  how many artist do that!? Makes you feel special.

I am so glad to spread his vision and music. He already changed my life, more people need to know and experience Niko.

Don’t just listen, let yourself go dive in and feel the love.

Being a fan of 60ies/70ies Pop/Rock, I thought Nashville was just the capital of Country Music where Bob Dylan recorded “Nashville Skyline”. Of course country sound is present in Niko’s music, by the New Grass Mix of “The Sun The Moon and The Stars” and the Slowgrass Mix of “The Special One” with beautiful fiddles, banjo and voice, and his faster New Mountain Mix version of this song, a more joyful country.

But Niko has also a good voice, between Roxy Music’s Brian Ferry, Jeff Buckley’s Grace of angels and Lloyd Cole in the lower notes, croons “Hate to Love” like Chris Isaak, served by Pink Floydy or Beatlesian pop arrangements that can also cool down in ballads or become angry to defend his engaged and generous struggles of our times against guns (“Put Away The Gun”) or to critic screen violence in “My Son”, ended with Soul singer and peaceful Gospel Choir. In “Angels” his voice incarn so good are also successful relaxing ambient/new age tunes, and his “Joy” could be a disco hit.

Open to other music, he wrote “Jules”, a jazzy joyful Beatles-like Sergeant Pepper ragtime brassband, and go futher from USA to meet a Greek Indian spirit at the “Closing Door”, and finds a way to Orient from Indian Music influences to Greek slow sirtaki in “Kali Spera”, slowdown with Mexican organ, to Egypt following the strings of “The Exodus” to the desert dunes…

All his music shows a great composer, singer and arranger, giving nothing but good vibes of Love & Joy by this Warrior of Light.
