Stella was born beside the sea and raised by a Canadian nanny who waterskied topless. Following the release of two standout singles - "Samba" and "The Race"- the Athens-based artist is ready to share "The Break", her international debut. Self- produced, and recorded primarily at her home studio, "The Break" brings together all the playfulness and spontaneity that characterizes Stella's music: non-standard pop deviations whose shimmering feel-good surfaces are anchored by a powerful undertow of melancholy. Stella explains, "The Break has a lot to do with an "inner break" I was experiencing at the time. I intensely felt that I was moving from one place to another, musically and personally. I mean, if we look at the cover, I've turned myself into a bird and the circle - for me - indicates two different dimensions. Making it made me feel that I really wanted this music to travel, to infnity and beyond." Based in Greece, Stella began writing music while still a student at the Athens School of Fine Art, and frst released songs into the wild of the Internet in 2012. Soon in demand as a guest writer and vocalist for an impressive cross section of the Greek underground scene, she also fexed her melodic muscle on more personal collaborative projects, such as Fever Kids and a series of acclaimed tracks with Nteibint. But it was striking out on her own, writing and releasing two solo albums - her self- titled 2015 debut "Stella" and 2017's "Works For You" - that brought her critical momentum, buzz and airplay, making her one of Greece's most popular indie stars. Now signed with Arbutus Records, she's ready to break out - and ready to break you in.
