Katerine Duska’s song

Better Love is written by Greek singer-songwriter Leon of Athens, Scottish singer-songwriter David Sneddon, and Katerine Duska herself. It is a song that refers to the eternal quest for a higher love, one that is deep, unconditional and unapologetic. Katerine herself explains: “I wanted to write a song that would sound like an invitation, feel like an embrace. A tender song with a fighting spirit about a word we profusely use, but rarely actually mean. It really is the way to love, whomever you love.”
