about

Σtella is already known as the most characteristic female voice in the Greek electro-pop scene. After many collaborations and guest appearances (My Wet Calvin, Sillyboy, Coti K., Expert Medicine, Nteibint, Sad Disco) and two side projects (Fever Kids, Chest) it's time for her debut self-titled album.

The world of "Σtella" unfolds in 10 tracks where love for the 80's is present, synths are bolstered by funky guitar and dynamic bass and disco beats and colorful pop textures embrace the unique vocals of Σtella. The album was recorded in 2014, Σtella has written music and lyrics and has played most of the instruments, while it was produced by Σtella and Nteibint. The tracks "Detox" and "Picking Words" are already favoured by radio producers and the album is expected to be among the best pop albums of the year.

about

Σtella Athens, Greece

Σtella was born beside the sea and raised by a Canadian nanny who waterskied topless.

Her songs are non-standard pop deviations whose shimmering feel-good surfaces are anchored by a powerful undertow of melancholy.

Her two albums with Inner Ear Records – Σtella [2015] + Works For You [2017] – established her as one of the label’s best-selling artists and one of Greece’s most popular indie stars.
