Melisses (Greek; Μέλισσες, stylized as "ΜΕΛΙSSES") is a Greek pop-rock band that was formed in May 2008 with Christos Mastoras on lead vocals. The band has released three albums as of early 2015. 

Melisses (literally The Bees in Greek) is made up of: 
Christos Mastoras - vocals 
Thanos Laitsas - guitar 
Kostas Mavrogennis - bass 
Pantelis Kyramargios - keyboards 
Jacob Sampsakis - drums 

Melisses first became known in 2009 with their single "Krifa" (Secretly, Greek; Κρυφά) and its accompanying music video. They participated on the Greek final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 performing the song "Kinezos" (Chinese). Though they didn't win, the song became their second single and was a hit. After that came the release of their debut album Mistiko (Secret), which included "Krifa", "Kinezos" and 11 more songs. Three more singles were released from the album: "Epikindina Filia" (Dangerous Kisses), "Mistiko" and "Lonely Hearts". They also performed at the 2010 MAD Video Music Awards with Myronas Stratis, singing "Prin mas dei kaneis" and "Kryfa". 

In 2011 Melisses appeared again at the MAD Video Music Awards 2011, this time joining the band Vegas to perform the song "Auto to kalokairi". That summer they also teamed with Ivi Adamou for the song "Krata Ta Matia Sou Klista" (Keep Your Eyes Closed), which was later included on their second album, Akou (Listen). The album was released on early 2012 achieving Gold status. It also featured the hit singles "San Skia" (Like a Shadow), "Oti Afines Miso" (Anything That You Left Half), "Piki Piki" and "More Than That". On the summer of 2012, they toured with Helena Paparizou. They also released a brand new single "Se Thimamai" (I Remember You) featuring DUOMO.
