Evangelia Releases "Fotiá"

Evangelia Releases "Fotiá"

New Jersey native Evangelia released her latest single "Fotiá" via Epic Records in the U.S. and Columbia Records internationally. A music video for the track was directed by Jason Lester (Lauv, JP Sax x Julia Michaels, Madison Beer).  In the song, Evangelia pays tribute to her Greek roots through her innovative music combining pop influences with Greek traditional sounds.

"Fotiá" – Greek for "fire" – is a song about passion and listening to your heart, whether it's the tension and release of falling in love or taking a leap of faith to follow your dreams. By combining traditional Greek sounds, driving tribal, mystical drums and modern pop melodies with sensual vocals about giving in to temptation and losing all control, Evangelia creates a unique and addictive sonic blend that pulls you in emotionally while instantly making you want to dance. "Fotiá" follows Evangelia's debut track "Páme Páme" ("Let's Go, Let's Go"), which was released earlier this year and has been streamed more than 2 million times.

Evangelia grew up both in Greece, with her grandmother on the island of Crete, as well as New Jersey with her parents, influencing her work blending traditional Greek folk music and American pop music. While working full-time as a Special Education primary school teacher, Evangelia was spending her nights in various New York City recording studios and building a reputation as one of the most exciting newcomers on the music scene. When she was laid off from her teaching job, she took a leap of faith to pursue her lifelong dream of being an artist. Evangelia is quickly making a name for herself worldwide with her distinctive sound. This must-watch talent has more new music coming in 2021.

"Fotiá" was co-written and co-produced by Stolar (Aloe Blacc, Selena Gomez) and Alexis Troy (RIN). The release follows Evangelia's debut track "Páme Páme" ("Let's Go, Let's Go"), which was released earlier this year and has been streamed more than 2 million times.
