Career[edit]

Identical twin brothers Daniel and Eric Tadros studied Marketing at Montreal's Concordia University. Upon their graduation, they decided to follow a musical career.[2] Their initial release was "Maze" (2000) followed by "Pure Pleasure" (2001) and "PornStar" (2003), all successes in the province of Quebec. Soon followed their debut studio album of the same title Yo Quiero Bailar that includes also an English and French version of the single hit.

In 2007, Tadros released two albums, the all-English Pure Pleasure and the all-French album Vis ta vie. The title song from their francophone album became yet again a hit single for them in Quebec. Four of the songs of the album were written in a specially constructed 4 feet by 4 feet incubator at Place des Arts where they stayed continuously for a full week in the area popularly known as "bulle" attracting big media attention.[3]

Also famous are their "singing billboards" initiative in which they hired a number of billboard in strategic positions around Montreal, that would broadcast for a whole week 24 hours on 24 music by Tadros thus attracting passersby. They are also planning to embark on Space Adventures trip to outer space where they want to perform a song dedicated to universal peace.[4] In 2012, they released their English-language album Under My Skin and in 2013, a new single "Rebel" in both English featuring Julie Lévesque and French featuring additionally O.T MC (from Dubmatique).[5]

In February 2016, they released their all-English language album Djembe on Due Belier Records where they are credited as Tadros Brothers.
