What do Pepsi, Disney’s Frozen, Grey’s Anatomy and The Sims have in common? VASSY – the pop star you’ve already fallen in love with but you just don’t know it yet. Brimming with sultry vocals and effervescent melodies, the Greco-Australian most likely wrote that infectiously upbeat tune you’ve had in your head all week. Now you can finally put a name and face to the tunes that send you into a state of pure bliss.
The Australian-Greek songstress has been hard at work in the music industry for years. VASSY is a certified platinum and gold recording artist who has reached some of the highest achievements in the business. Her single “Hustlin” held the number one spot in Beatport for three weeks and reached #1 on the Billboard Dance Charts in 2014. The single, “Bad” with David Guetta and Showtek hit double platinum in 2014, has over 300 million YouTube views, was nominated for two IDMA Awards at WMC 2015, and reached Top 10 Pop around the globe. VASSY’s enchanting songs have been featured everywhere from Target, Nickelodeon, Skechers, Victoria’s Secret, and Pepsi commercials, to movies like Disney’s Frozen and Grey’s Anatomy. You’ve even heard her track translated into “simlish” for The Sims 2. You’ve already heard her hit single “We Are Young,” which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance Charts in 2013 and has been featured in countless movie and television spots.
VASSY recently released a vibrant collection of indie-pop, We Are Young will set your heart on fire. Bursting with pop anthems and anthemic tunes, Entertainment Weekly crowned the set as “…smashing together electronic bubblegum, boisterous retro soul, and a sunny tropical disposition, resulting in something that sounds like Meghan Trainor channeling M.I.A.—or a 21st century update of Bow Wow Wow.” VASSY herself describes the We Are Young album release as “magic” and an invitation to a journey into her own self-discovery. She muses, “it’s like the universe calling your name and allowing your authenticity to just shine.” The album also features reggae-infused numbers like “Wanna Fly,” a fierce proclamation of self-love and independence. Plus, VASSY brings her signature peppy flare to the table on the boisterous, “In the Sun,” with frequent collaborator Tim Myers (formerly of One Republic) as sell a dazzling cover of the New Radicals’ classic, “Get What You Give.” Music critic and self-proclaimed fan, JC Alvarez says, “VASSY’s sound lends an authenticity to her street credibility whether she’s delivering on an EDM dance-heavy vibe or presenting herself slightly trippy with a hip-hop slip. VASSY’s drive is rebellious and punchy and speaks to the soul of those that may feel themselves disenfranchised or on the outer fringes of society, but are nonetheless slaves to the rhythm.”
Upcoming collaborations are in the works with the likes of Cash Cash, Showtek, Pitbull and Honorebel, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Reid Stefan, Mark MacRowland, Shermanology, Tiko’s Groove, Aiden Jude and Audiobot to name a few.
VASSY’s latest banger, “Secrets” with Tiesto and KSHMR went #1 on Beatport within 24 hours of release, Becoming label Spinnin’s second best-selling single ever. “Secrets” has recently been released internationally via Casablanca / Universal
