Interview with Héllena

Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
I grew up in a cute small town near mount Olympus in Greece. My love for music led me to many different paths, some were amazing some weren't, but there was always something to learn out from every situation. I didn't decide to become an Artist. I just love to make music, connect with others and push my limits.
Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?
For airplay there are many opportunities out there like the BBC introducing here in the UK. If you're good, they'll play you. Gigging is tough. In my opinion bands shouldn't get on with every opportunity that comes their way. They should be selective because many gigs can turn out to be a waste of time...and money.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
In a live environment there will always be mistakes. Most of the times I embrace them and react with humour. Life is too short to take everything too seriously.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
I've got a mini studio at home and I invest mostly in instruments. The latest music related thing I bought though is an amp for both guitar and vocals since I'm doing busking when the weather is nice here...which isn't often.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
My social networks work quite well. It's the perfect way to reach big audiences but you cannot spam people. Apart from that, radio stations is another awesome way to promote your music. There are seriously infinite ways. You just have to put in the work and have very strong material.
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
It would be with Nirvana at Reading Festival in 1992 only I would have been at the age I am now 🙂 why? Watch their gig at Reading festival and you won't have to ask me again.
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
I am working on lots of new material, some of the songs are almost ready for release, so stay tuned 🙂
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
I'm really into acting lately so maybe I would have been an actor or smth. I also like directing so maybe that, too.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
Many. New. Songs.
Exposed Vocals: Any Shout-outs?
To my Héllraisers, as always. Your support means everything x
