But there is so much more to VASSY than an EDM and dance ‘hook chick’. The now Los Angeles based singer/songwriter has recently released a vibrant indie-pop collection titled ‘We Are Young’. Entertainment Weekly crowned the winning set as “…smashing together electronic bubblegum, boisterous retro soul, and a sunny tropical disposition, resulting in something that sounds like Meghan Trainor channeling M.I.A.—or a 21st century update of Bow Wow Wow.” The album features reggae-infused numbers like “Wanna Fly,” the boisterous up-tempo gem “In the Sun,” with frequent collaborator Tim Myers (formerly of One Republic) and an inspired reworking of the New Radicals’ classic, “Get What You Give.” ‘We Are Young’ encapsulates VASSY’s effortless dexterity as both versatile singer and songwriter.
Even with her music career taking flight VASSY, has always prioritized her philanthropic work with charity groups and civil rights organizations. She is an active ambassador for the NOH8 campaign (an anti-discrimination association that supports equal rights for all human kind), a spokesperson for Green IT (a campaign to help educate people on how to protect the environment), works with Studio Samuel Foundation helping girls in Ethiopia and supports Playground of Dreams which encourages youth to transform their dreams into reality by fostering creativity, confidence and unique purpose in the world. VASSY also volunteers and teaches music workshops at AVIVA, a teenage safe house and orphanage for girls in Los Angeles. VASSY has also been honored being named in Greek America’s ‘Forty Under 40’ Class of 2014 inductees.
Be it through her music, volunteerism giving back to the communities – VASSY’s goal is to inspire people to fight for their dreams!
