You probably know Greek-Australian indie-pop dynamo Vassy’s soulful and exotic voice from TV campaigns such as Chevy, Target, Victoria Secret, Sketchers and Hilton Hotels or shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty and Human Target. That’s if it isn’t from catching her music in feature films such as The Cabin in the Woods or games like The Sims. Her music has even been featured in webformercials by Dr. Pepper and Youtube!
If that wasn’t enough, the Australian singer/songwriter recently teamed up with Grammy-nominated Dave Audé for her new Billboard Chart release, “We Are Young”. The pop-tastic tune features big room floor filling remixes from Dave Audé, Sultan & Ned Shepard, Dirty Freqs, Ivan Gomez & Reidiculous.
Vassy, whose Greek-Australian background is as unique as voice, is deftly talented at penning strong lyrics that convey her own positive and uplifting attitude towards life; Positive and uplifting, they jolt the listener to a happier place.
Vassy was born in a remote area of Australia to Greek immigrants, fell in love with Billie Holiday at a young age, and moved to the United States to pursue her dream of becoming a musician.
“She was my pure inspiration,” she says of Billie Holiday. “I heard this voice on a community radio station and it immediately caught my attention. She evoked emotion within me, something that resonated so strongly with me, and I became passionate about her and American culture through her music”.
Despite growing up in an immigrant family where traditional education was valued, Vassy knew that her future was in music. She fulfilled her promise to her late father by obtaining an honours degree in Interior Architecture, and then set off for America to pursue a musical career; Vassy credits Billie Holiday and the women in her family as being the driving force behind her success and her subsequent move to America:
“She’s the reason I’m here today,” Vassy says of Billie Holiday. “She was a strong woman with many vulnerabilities; I have been surrounded by strong women in my entire life. I have an incredible mum, and my grandmother, my mum’s mum, is our soldier; she was a young widow and raised two girls on her own in poverty back in Greece. Women have always been strong leaders in my family and I strive to teach other young ladies that too.”
Vassy’s family history is ever present in her career both inside the studio and within her community – she takes time to give back by volunteering at a safe home for teenage girls in Los Angeles, teaching music. Vassy is a motivator and an inspirational force for these young women by using music to help build their self-esteem and belief in themselves. She often uses her life as an example to illustrate that talent, positivity and determination will make a path to success.
