Sertari

“Lyrically and sonically, Sertari’s song ‘Teardrops’ is both refreshing and pleasant. Listening to her music I am reminded that peace

does still exist.” J. Ivy – Grammy Award Winning US Artist

“Her single “Teardrops” showcases a blanket of beautiful synth melodies, as well as some really uplifting lead vocals, with all the hooks in the right places. With a name that reminds me of some ancient Goddess, Sertari blends electro, pop and rock in a soulful and powerful way. Her lyrics are meaningful and thought-provoking, and the vibes of this particular single remind me of some of Robyn or Coldplay’s latest work, but with a more direct rock vibe.” MoreMoreSound

Winner of the Akademia “Singer/Songwriter” Award 2014, and a previous nominee for “BEST LIVE ACT” and “BEST SONG” at the Exposure Music Awards, and 2013 Winner of the Extreme Exposure Award in the UK Open Mic Finals, Anglo-Cypriot singer-/songwriter SERTARI is now back in the studio working on several news releases and a new live show following a break following the arrival of her baby daughter.

Fom several years Sertari has been involved in the music scenes in the UK and Europe and has worked and performed with producers and artists such as Adrian Hall (Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys) and Scratch from The Roots, whilst her current material has seen her work with the likes of J-Ivy (US artist who has worked with Jay-Z and Kanye West), Peter Wright (Robbie Williams), Pete Craigie (Take That, R Kelly, Beverley Knight, Stevie Wonder etc), and production duo James Winchester and Rob Davies (Notting Hill Publishing).

Sertari is not just a singer/songwriter – but a gifted artist and skilled composer with a passion for stagecraft and getting the crowd immersed and involved in her music. Born in the UK to a Cypriot family, she was brought up in a quiet town where the closest thing to the Mediterranean is Costa Coffee. Using the stage as an outlet, she has consistently shown the drive, ambition and creativity to achieve great things. Her father was a professional singer and is still one of her biggest inspirations and influences; indeed, Sertari is derived from his stage name (Nicolas Sertari). Her other influences range from the likes of Kate Bush and Madonna to Led Zeppelin and Nightwish.

As a result of her determination, she has already achieved much self-propelled success, including being nominated for various international awards and has a backlog of worldwide releases, press, TV and radio exposure behind her – even her own iPhone app. She is now working on new material and will soon be embarking on a series of live shows in the UK and Europe – including a tour of her native Cyprus – alongside a busy schedule of TV and radio appearances. Her live show has earned a well-deserved reputation among audiences in several countries for it’s high energy levels, crowd participation and sheer spectacle.

Over the past couple of years her music has also caught the eye of brands world-wide and she has become an Akai Pro and Abelton Artist. She recently recorded at the world-famous Metropolis Studios in London and released an EP called ‘Pandora’s Box’ (available on iTunes) plus a single in the US with all proceeds going to a charity for US schools. She also released a charity single in the UK in aid of Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital. To continue this charity work, she ran the Reading Half Marathon in aid of the Fire Fighters. 

As well as her musical skills, she is also a highly skilled martial artist and has just gained the much-coveted black t-shirt in Kamon Kung Fu – so be warned, she make look petite, but this girl packs quite a punch onstage and off!
