Greek-Canadian musician Katherine Filippeos has recently released a new single entitled “Breathe Into Me,” inspired by Superman, her “favorite superhero,” and the passion of young love.
Featuring a “rock edge” and inspiring, emotional lyrics, the track “tells a story of young love and the potential a girl sees in a boy who is growing into manhood,” the singer explains.
“Breathe Into Me” was born out of a collaboration between Filippeos and her father, Kostas, whose compositions have been featured on Canadian film and television, including OMNI Channel 47 and the Odyssey Television Network.
After Kostas stumbled across a recording of the song, written by Katherine Fillippeos herself, he decided to put a “fresh spin,” on the track, and, as Katherine recalls to Greek Reporter, she was “blown away” by the song.
The father-daughter collaboration was a first for Katherine Filippeos, who is based in Athens, in that it involved sending her work back and forth from Greece to Toronto, where her father lives.
When the song was near perfection, Filippeos recorded the moving final vocals for “Breathe Into Me” in her studio in Athens.
Konstantine Arnokouros worked on the mixing and programming for the track, and the talents of guitarist Vasili Arnokouros and bassist John Grigoriou were also featured on the song.

Fittingly, the music video for the single, filmed on the secluded beach called Schinia, outside of Marathon, is a stunning backdrop to “Breathe Into Me.”
Inspired by the beautiful landscape, Filippeos and video director Odysseas Karadis arrived at the beach without a concrete plan for the video, letting their surroundings and Filippeos’ single inspire them, giving the video what she calls “a refreshing spontaneity.”
Born and raised in Toronto, Filippeos holds an ARCT diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Putting her musical and songwriting talents to work, Filippeos has written songs for herself and others that have appeared on the Billboard charts in North America.
