Τα βιογραφικά των συντελεστών στα ελληνικά: ΟΝΕΙΡΟ ΜΟΥ – ΒΙΟΓΡΑΦΙΚΑ ΣΥΝΤΕΛΕΣΤΩΝ
Yianna Terzi (Performer, composer, lyric writer)
Emerging from a musical family of professional singers, including her father who is one of the most known platinum artists in Greece, Yianna Terzi is certainly “the one” to put under our radar. Relocating from Greece to the U.S. nine years ago, and working her way into the studio with Grammy awarded and nominated notables, Yianna stirred up the vision to take her musical talent in a place where she knew she could be free and express herself musically in her own way. Yianna wanted this transition to break the restrictions she felt with the logistics of Greek music as a whole. She released her first official English single titled “Love Is Your Name” which hit iTunes and started bubbling in the underground clubs of NYC. This prompted Yianna to begin performing in the Big Apple to create her foundation in the US.
Yianna is no newbie to being a star. She performed in front of thousands in Greece. At a young age, Yianna was inspired by ground breaking artists such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. With attaining a degree in Theory of Music, she pursued her dream of becoming a professional singer and was quickly signed to Universal Music. Audiences connected with Yianna instantly and caught hold to her unique tone.
She has received nominations for the “Best New Artist” at the “Cyprus Music Awards” as well as the prestigious “Arion Awards”. Her debut album “Gyrna to kleidi” (“Turn the key”) placed her in the eyes of radio with the single “Pou kai pou” (“Every now and then”) which dominated the charts for months. Right after that, Yianna’s sophomore album was released with EMI from which two singles and videos were released.
This year she is representing Greece in the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, where she will be performing the song “Oniro Mou” (My dream), which she cosigned with Aris Kalimeris, Dimitris Stamatiou and Michalis Papathanasiou.
The song was released under her new record label, Panik Records.
