CareerEdit

Paris and Simo were both studying in Montreal in their late teens when they met.[citation needed] Both have European backgrounds (Greek and Italian) and were avid instrumentalists. Musically-inclined from a young age, Paris was a drummer while Simo was a piano player, and both were DJs on the side. Together, they created Paris & Simo. Their first taste of success occurred in 2011, when they won a remix contest for Tiesto's "Work Hard Play Hard" single.[3] Armed with a global platform to showcase their musical talent thanks to Tiesto, they started to become known globally.[4] Another dance music artist, Hardwell, took notice and signed them to his Revealed Recordings label.[5] They produced multiple tracks on Hardwell's label, including progressive house songs "Monk", "Nova",[6] "Seasons", "Escape" featuring 3LAU[7] and Bright Lights, and "Not Alone" featuring Mako.[8]

Paris & Simo also produced pop-inspired tracks such as "Evermore" featuring Gabrielle Current and FINNEAS, "Keep Me Close" featuring Montreal-based singer Sara Diamond and "Sleep Talk".[9] Their track "Evermore" premiered on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1.[citation needed]

They both featured in a music video for "Keep Me Close" featured on MUCH, Canada's largest music TV channel.[10]

In October 2018, Paris & Simo announced a change in their public image, with Simo retiring from touring and focusing only on production, and Paris stepping up as the group's frontman.[11] The group's name was changed to Prince Paris, with their first single "My Position" under the new alias being released on 26 October 2018.[12][13]
