Vassy is the first Australian artist to reach the number one spot in the Billboard Club Charts with her new album “We Are Young”. The album which was released just seven months ago is causing a big “buzz” among the young audiences , and creating an impact not only in her native country but also within the industry that could nominate her for a 2014 Grammy in various categories such as Best Recording Artist, and Best New Artist.
Her album We Are Young is a collection of 13 songs full of energetic pop dance beats with urban fusion produced by a famous group of producers. One of the songs counts with the participation of famed DJ David Guetta and Dutch producer and DJ Afro Jack . The album has been launched internationally, on Universal in Spain, Ballon Records in Germany , Panik Records in Greece, and Vicious Recording in Australia .
“We Are Young” was written by Vassy along with Tim Myers of the band One Republic , and mixed by the renowned music producer and DJ Dave Aude. It was the song chosen for the Target campaign in Australia, and is part of the trailer for the new Disney’s film Frozen. The song was also chosen to be used as a trailer track for Tina Fey's newest film, Admission.
Among the categories that the singer/composer is being considered for an upcoming Grammy nominations are: Best Dance Recording , Best New Artist , Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Presentation and Record of the Year .
Vassy was born in Darwin, Australia , daughter of Greek immigrants . Interesting enough, she was expelled from her school choir because they felt she could not sing. After fulfilling her father’s wishes to complete her studies for a career in Architecture and Design, she gave her life a different twist by devoting herself to her true passion, singing, and composing. In her fledgling career she has been chosen to open the Mad VMA Awards in Greece, among other accomplishments.
