Biography

Hellena is a songstress born in the shadow of the Mountain of the Gods, Olympus, Greece. Her creations regularly marry the Eastern/Western world whilst sonically fusing dreamy/ethereal and dark/distorted sensibilities. Hellena’s music is a contrast of light and dark, meeting seamlessly in the middle. Her lyrics are often raw, philosophical and existential, transporting the listener to a mystical land or offering poignant reflection and introspection. Typically influenced by observations of the world and her own life, her vocals are driven by beautiful melodies and carefully crafted harmonies.

Now residing in London, UK, Hellena has subsequently played at some of the capital's most exclusively renowned venues such as The Troubadour. In addition, she has charted in the Top 20 MTV Unsigned listing and performed at the legendary Texas festival SXSW as well as The Beatles’ world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. Live appearances on the likes of BBC London Radio 94.9FM have further enhanced Hellena’s reputation.

Her independently released EP "Kissed the Sun" in 2018 was followed by further singles "Love is Dead" and “The Parthenon Marbles (bring them back)” which drew considerable media attention from around the world. In March 2020, she ran a Crowdfunding Campaign to raise funds to launch her Full Debut Album entitled "Demythed". It proved to be a great success as the funding total reached 160%.

Musicians from right across the globe put their heart and soul into the creation of Hellena’s album, culminating in a transatlantic collaboration. This group includes the bass player and band leader of Lacuna Coil, Marco Coti Zelati (aka Maki).

Hellena is proud to present her debut full album entitled “Demythed” in October 2020.
