Rising pop artist Evangelia has released her new single “Fotiá” along with its accompanying music video, available via Epic Records in the U.S. and Columbia Records internationally. Evangelia pays tribute to her Greek roots through her innovative music combining pop influences with Greek traditional sounds. PRESS HERE to download/stream “Fotiá,” co-written and co-produced by Stolar (Aloe Blacc, Selena Gomez) and Alexis Troy (RIN), and PRESS HERE to watch the official music video for “Fotiá,” directed by Jason Lester (Lauv, JP Sax x Julia Michaels, Madison Beer). “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.

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’ is such a special song for me,” shares Evangelia. “At its core, ‘Fotiá’ is about letting go and following your passion – whether it’s romantic love or doing what you love. For me, it’s both. In addition to representing my love story, the song is about truly following my passion to be an artist. We wrote the song the day after signing my record deal. I was finally living out my dream, unapologetically. The literal translation of fotiá is fire, and the way I interpret it in this song is as passion. I’ll never be the same as I was before we wrote this song; it’s a part of me now. And the people I made it with – Stolar and Alexis Troy – make this song extra special.”

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. Watch for more music to come from this must-watch talent in 2021.
