Album Notes
Katerina Polemi is a natural talent with music in her
soul, a guitar in her hands, and rhythm in her feet. She is a vo-
calist, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. But most of all, she is an
artist, with an extraordinary love of performance, and creating
music that inspires the soul.

A recent graduate from the prestigious Berklee College of
Music, Katerina was born in London, UK and raised between
Greece and Brazil. She began her musical journey at the young
age of four years old, and has been performing ever since.
Bossa nova has been in her blood since she was a child,
as well as the intricate melodies and harmonies of jazz and
Greek music. Inspired by countless masters, from Antonio
Carlos Jobim, Maria Bethania, Marisa Monte to Thelonious Monk,
Rachel Ferrell and Ella Fitzerald, Katerina draws on her unique
ethnic background to give voice to stunning and insightful inter-
pretations of Brazilian, Greek, jazz and world music.

Her performances and compositions search for the
essence of each song, in order to bring it to life. She is always
focused on the poetry or story being told, and zeroes in not on
the general -- but on the nuance -- of every note that she sings.
Katerina has a voice that is described as “spontaneous, smoky
and distinctive.”

This young, talented singer and songwriter personifies ar-
tistic and musical freedom. Because of her own Greek Brazilian
background she has been able to draw from two rich cultures
each with historic and complex musical traditions.
Her first solo album released in 2011, is comprised of
original works in the theatrical Gypsy Jazz musical style. It’s
called, Spread The Music, Not The Name.

Her philosophy as an artist is focused on what’s real.
As she says, “real music, and real anything comes from
nothingness that becomes something. This happens when you
approach it from the purest and most sincere place inside your
being. That’s how I seek to approach it: Love-Study-Feel and

“With a heart big as a mountain and a voice
to match, Katerina takes us into her worldly
music where her personal style and memories
meet the big vision of the planet.”
~Rhiannon (Bobby McFerrin, Voicestra)

“This singer is doing a wonderful thing with
her personality and her love for music! Yes,
of course, she can sing... but Katerina brings
more than a great vocal talent! She brings
the joy and excitement of the rhythm and
music that courses through her veins! She’s
my hero! Love you, Girl!”
~Donna McElroy

“Katerina is someone who is destined to be a
success. She owns a beautful voice, and an
original ability to interpret music. Some
people are musicians, and some are artists.
Katerina is both. When she sings, plays the
piano or guitar, she becomes one with the in-
strument, and her personality comes through
her music.”
~Jetro Da Silva (Whitney Houston’s Pianist)
