Singer/songwriter Evangelia delivers a spellbinding form of pop music that’s indelibly shaped by her charmed upbringing. Although she grew up in New Jersey, the 27-year-old artist has spent nearly every summer of her life on her grandmother’s farm on the Greek island of Crete, where she became enamoured with Greek folk music from an incredibly young age. After getting her start playing clubs in New York City (all while holding down a full-time teaching job back in Jersey), Evangelia landed a record deal with Sony Music International and soon brightened the pop landscape with a boldly original sound built on her endlessly magnetic presence.

Made with her creative partner Jay Stolar (a songwriter/producer known for his work with Aloe Blacc, G-Eazy, and Demi Lovato), Evangelia’s debut single “Páme Páme” offers a powerful introduction to her impassioned brand of pop. With its brilliant flashes of Greek phrasing (its title translates to “Let’s go, let’s go”), the bouncy but smoldering track emerges as a high-energy anthem for living fully in the moment. On her follow-up single “Fotiá,” Evangelia again proved her undeniable ingenuity, working with esteemed German producer Alexis Troy and conjuring up a euphoric dance number fueled by kinetic percussion and heavenly melodies. And in virtually all of her output, Evangelia reveals the irresistible dynamic at the heart of her artistry: a sophisticated instinct for the intricacies of pop, and a nuanced understanding of the potent rhythms and mesmerizing textures of traditional Greek music.
