Emerging from a musical family of professional singers, Yianna Terzi is certainly one to look out for. She relocated from Greece to the United States nine years ago and worked her way into the studio with Grammy Award winning composers. Yianna took her musical talent to a place where she knew she could be free and express herself musically in her own way.
Yianna released her first official English language single, Love Is Your Name, which hit iTunes and started gaining attention in the underground clubs of New York City. This prompted Yianna to begin performing there to create her foundation in the US.
At a young age, Yianna was inspired by groundbreaking artists such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. Gaining 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.
Yianna has received nominations for Best New Artist at the Cyprus Music Awards as well as the prestigious Arion Awards. Her debut album Gyrna to kleidi (Turn The Key) received significant radio airplay and the single Pou kai pou (Every Now And Then) dominated the charts for months. Yianna’s second album was released through EMI from which two singles and videos were released.
Yianna is representing Greece in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, where she will be performing the song Oniro Mou (My Dream), which she co-produced with Aris Kalimeris, Dimitris Stamatiou and Michalis Papathanasiou.
