GREECE – It was just announced by ERT that Katerine Duska, the Greek Canadian singer with the unique voice will represent Greece in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. Yes, we all agree in two things already: nobody really knows her, no media attention was given to her and yes, she has a unique voice, she’s a very good singer and in the showbiz world she is considered a liable choice.
Now, its remains to listen to the song and see how it will make us rock as ERT said recently. The Eurovision 2019 entry will be composed by her and will be recorded and visualised soon.
Song to be presented in 7/3
Katerine Duska is a Greek-Canadian singer/songwriter currently based in Athens.
Her acclaimed debut album ‘Embodiment’ was released in 2016 by Minos EMI/ Universal Records and in 2018, her single ‘Fire Away’ was selected for the official “Nescafe Canada” television ad campaign.
Her musical style channels the dark sonic timbres of Lykke Li, Banks and Jessie Ware and her trademark soulful rasp has earned her comparisons to Amy Winehouse.
Katerine rose to indie star status with her hit song “One in a Million” and her cover of Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I wanna know”, reaching over 2 million views on Youtube.
She has since then collaborated and shared the stage with LP, Albin Lee Meldau, Tom Baxter, Yasmine Hamdan, Oddisee, Kadebostany and has performed in prestigious venues and festivals across Europe such as The O2 Academy London, Rockwave Festival, Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center Foundation, Megaron Concert Hall and Sofarsound’s /Amnesty International’s global festival “Give a home” where she was one of the 300+ artists to participate in support of the world’s refugees.
Katerine Duska is represented by Minos EMI/ Universal Music Group, the same label as Tamta (for Cyprus)… Interesting!
