Bearing in mind the history of the Eurovision Song Contest and special characteristics as well as ERT’s participation - which spans four decades - the Hellenic Broadcaster unanimously decided in favour of Katerine. As members of the Selection Committee explained, she won them over with her unique voice and her music and lyrics, representing a modern trend.
Katerine Duska is a Greek-Canadian singer/songwriter currently based in Athens. Her acclaimed debut album Embodiment was released in 2016 by Minos EMI/Universal Records and in 2018, her single Fire Away was selected for an official television ad campaign on Canadian tv. Katerine's musical style channels the dark sonic timbres of Lykke Li and Jessie Ware and her trademark soulful rasp has earned her comparisons to Amy Winehouse.
Katerine rose to indie star status with her hit song One in a Million and her cover of Arctic Monkeys' Do I Wanna Know. She has since then collaborated and shared the stage with artists like LP, Albin Lee Meldau, Tom Baxter, Yasmine Hamdan, Oddisee, Kadebostany and has performed in prestigious venues and festivals across Europe such as The O2 Academy, Rockwave Festival, SNFCC, Megaron Concert Hall and Sofarsounds/Amnesty International's global festival Give a Home.
