First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us unfortunate enough to not already know you?

 

Hi, my name is Vassy lol, I was born and raised in the tropics of Australia to Greek parents. I grew up on the beach, I got kicked out of school choir, been told I couldn't sing, people would tell me to 'dream on' if I ever said I wanted to live in America one day doing music... yet here I am, so DREAM ON :-) I say!

 

What can you tell us about your new album Beautiful Day?

 


It will make you smile, it's electric fizzy soulful pop, people say MIA meets Amy Winehouse, others say Billie meets Cobbie, whatever you say I'm cool with it. The songs all come from a true place, I wrote them all from authentic experiences... it's emporing and motivates you to think and dream big for yourself, the song Real Deal, We are Young, and Beautiful Day kinda zones in on that

 

How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard any of your songs?

 

Soulful quirky percussive pop.

 

What are your key inspirations when writing a song?

 

Real experiences. I have been through matters of the heart, of fear, rejection, empowerment, being strong, vulnerable and so many things. Each song comes from something I went through last year.

 

In the studio: What is a typical Vassy-recording session like?

 

Talk talk blah blah in the first hour lol, then ummm what should we write about, then wanna get a coffee, then hey I'm hungry, then BANG an idea comes lol. Actually to be honest it's different every time I work with so many different producers so you never know what the chemistry is going to be like till you're in and try it... sometimes you write the song in the first hour and it's a wrap!! Other times you cannot deliver all day...

 

How did you get started in the music business in the first place, and what can you tell us about your training as a musician?

 

No training at all, in fact I studied architecture and then got into music. I always wanted to do music from a young age but did not have the opportunities nor anyone helping me. I came from a non-music family and a very remote part of Australia, plus a strict Greek father who wanted me to be a lawyer LOL. Anyways, after my dad passed away he gave me his blessings, and shortly after that I got a record deal in Australia with Warners... In fact I won this song competion Song of the Year on a radio station, my friend submitted the song without me knowing and it got picked.... then I came to America... at the age of 15 I heard this woman on the radio, I didn't know who she was but she stole my heart - her name was Billie Holiday. She was playing on a community radio station and I was like WOW, who is that woman who makes me want to cry? She moved me so much, her song Autumn in NY was the song that made me move to America, I luv this country, it is the land of the dreams!! And I've got my green card so you can't get rid of me now haha!

 

What are the key differences between the Australian and the US-American music business?

 

Americans are aggressive, I love that, big thinkers, ambitious and creative... Aussies are more laid back but very unique...

 

You must have worked with lots of musicians and the like during your career. Some of your favourite collaborators?

 

Rodney Jerkins who just did half of the new Justin Bieber album - he is a legend he has worked with all the top A pop stars in the world... and AfroJack who's the hottest DJ producer right now, that was dope.

 

Producers, musicians, bands you'd love to work with but haven't yet (no matter how improbable)?

 


Bono from U2, Foster The People, MIA, Crystal Waters cos I'm obsessed with Gypsy Woman, her hit songs from back in the day.

 

One of your songs was recently featured in Joss Whedon's highly anticipated and critically praised Cabin in the Woods. Now how did that come about, and what does it feel like to hear one of your songs playing on the big screen?

 

It's awesome, I love it and it pays the bills :-) That same song also got the new 2012 Victoria Secret Swimsuit Campaign.

 

With Cabin in the Woods being a horror film, is that a genre you can at all relate to?

 

Actually not really lol, I'm a wimp like that.

 

How do you feel in general about your songs used in films, TV shows or ads? And do you think your music is always represented in the right way?

 

I never knew my music was so TV/film friendly, I just did my thing and one day my music got heard by some people and the it got the Hilton Hotel campaign, Pepsi, Chevy, Nike, Google and so on... I was like woooow me?? That's so cool... who would have known!!!
