Tournée Europavox ° Interview with ΣTELLA
Written by english on 14 mai 2019
From the 2nd to the 11th May 2019, touring seven French cities, Europavox presents a selection of evenings mixing political debates, concerts and stand-up, completely free of charge. Organised in collaboration with le Bureau en France du Parlement européen and la Représentation en France de la Commission européenne, this tour encourages the (young) people of France to get involved in the upcoming European elections.
Among the musicians invited to the event was Greek artist ΣTELLA. Following her self-titled debut album in 2015, ΣTELLA quickly became one of Greece’s most exciting and acclai med indi e artists. Her style bounces between indie-pop and alt-rock, with intricate guitar work layered below her distinctive, mellow vocals. ΣTELLA released a second album called « Works for You » in 2017, still signed with independent Greek label Inner Ear Records, but has since moved on to Canadian label Arbutus Records with whom she recently released « Samba » (2019), a single teasing her third album.
Before her performance in Lille as part of la Tournée Europavox, ΣTELLA featured live on The Euradio Show with Liv Cowle. In the interview above she discusses the stories behind her second album, the video for « Samba », and the indie music scene in Greece.
