Vassy: Quickie 10

Sometimes Vassy just needs to be Vassy. This doesn’t get to happen all the time. Because when the native-Australian is serving as a successful songwriter for premier artists all over the globe, Vassy Karaglorgos has to be thinking about someone beside herself. However, for a musician with melodies constantly on her brain, and rhythms perpetually flowing through her body, this is not an easy task. Quite simply, the native-Australian, whose new album Beautiful Day is a hand-clapping, foot-stomping pop parade of giddy proportions, is a creator. And as Vassy says,  “When you’re a creator, you just gotta stay creating.” Being an artist is who she is. “I’ve got things to give people,” she says proudly.
