Christina has worked in Theatre, TV and cinema, but her favourite form of expression is singing. Through her singing Christina takes us on a journey through different musical styles. With a retro mood she combines a cinematic element with contemporary Greek and international music scenes with blues, rock and jazz influences. From Nancy Sinatra and Rita Hayworth to the more modern sounds of Amy Winehouse and Imany. From Sophia Vembo to the more current sounds of Stamatis Kraounakis and Tania Tsanaklidou.
Her musical expedition takes us on a trip combining old and new, Greek and international, original songs and covers.
Her new single “Ordinary Girl” is a dynamic song with jazz/blues and rock influences and is released through Final Touch.
Cage the Elephant
New Album “Tell Me I’m Pretty”
Release Date: 18th December ‘15
Grammy-nominated rock band Cage the Elephant announced their fourth studio album, Tell Me I’m Pretty, will be released on December 18th, 2015 via RCA Records.
Although chart success in England was an unlikely first step to fame for a band from Bowling Green, Kentucky, mainstream rock band Cage the Elephant achieved just that.
Tell Me I’m Pretty was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys & The Arcs (Lana Del Rey, Ray LaMontagne, The Black Keys, The Arcs), mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Florence + the Machine) and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN, near the group’s home town of Bowling Green, KY. CLICK HERE to pre-order the album via PledgeMusic. Exclusive items, including postcards from the band, signed posters and instruments, and handwritten lyric sheets, among others, are available via the pre-order.
With Tell Me I’m Pretty, Cage the Elephant are pushing the advances they made with their last record—2013’s Melophobia, which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Album – while also drawing from the sounds that initially inspired them to start making music.
“With this record, we wanted to be more transparent,” said lead singer Matt Shultz. “We wanted to capture the sentiment of each song, and whatever emotional response it provoked, to be really honest to that.” The results are the band’s most forceful and focused songs yet. They recorded most of the songs on the 10-song album on the first take, capturing the band’s raw and frenetic onstage energy.
Melophobia took the band to new heights, spinning off two Number One singles on the Alternative charts, “Come a Little Closer” and “Cigarette Daydreams”, with Rolling Stone describing the album as, “Kentucky's Cage the Elephant warp Sixties garage rock, Seventies punk and Eighties alt-rock into excellently weird new shapes”; while their 2011 sophomore album Thank You Happy Birthday debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was praised as “one of the best rock albums of the year”. Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage the Elephant has toured extensively, selling out several headlining runs and performing alongside the likes of The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Muse and Queens of the Stone Age.
Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, and drummer Jared Champion.
New Single “ALIVE”
Release Date: 16th October’15
(Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records)
(New York- September 24, 2015) Singer/songwriter/producer/massive hitmaker Sia releases today her brand new single entitled “Alive,” from her forthcoming album THIS IS ACTING (Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records). CLICK HERE to listen to “Alive.”
“Alive” was written by Sia, Adele and Tobias Jesso, Jr. and was produced by Jesse Shatkin, who also co-wrote and co-produced Sia’s massive four-time Grammy-nominated “Chandelier.”
Sia released her #1 charting and critically-acclaimed album 1000 FORMS OF FEAR (Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records) last year in July, which features her massive breakthrough singles “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.” The groundbreaking video for “Chandelier” has enjoyed an unprecedented 900 million views and its follow-up video “Elastic Heart” with over 399 million views.
An astonishingly creative and uncompromising performer, Sia is also a highly prolific hit maker and songwriter, having penned several hit singles over the last few years for others. She has crafted songs for pop icons including Rihanna (“Diamonds”), Katy Perry (“Double Rainbow”), Britney Spears (“Perfume”), Kelly Clarkson (“Invincible”), Carly Rae Jepsen ("Making the Most of the Night"), Beyoncé (“Pretty Hurts”) and Celine Dion (“Love Me Back To Life”), and many more. Sia has also been the featured vocalist on some of the most massive hits she has written for others including “Titanium” with David Guetta, “Beautiful Pain” with Eminem, and “Wild Ones” with Flo Rida. Additionally, Sia was nominated for a Golden Globe last year for the song “Opportunity” from the 2014 adaptation of the Broadway musical “Annie.”

That Kodaline are ready to release their second album has still to sink in with the men who made it. The Dublin quartet didn’t plan to follow up last year’s 350,000-selling In A Perfect World so promptly. In fact, they didn’t plan at all. Sparked by an experiment that inspired them to shake up their sound, the band started recording and couldn’t stop. Just eight weeks later, Coming Up For Air was complete.
