IOTA PHI is a Greek singer, songwriter, director and record producer. Inspired by ideas of identity, post humanism and Greek mythology, her sound effortlessly brings together a swirling mix of Alternative Electronic, Pop and R&B in a truly original and elegant Art-Pop package.

Having enjoyed major support from the likes of Spin, Rolling Stone India, XS Noize, Purple Melon, Esquire, Vogue, Popjustice, Earmilk and Videostatic, Ilia’s first studio work, which was released by EMI, topped the Greek charts.

A follow up to the enigmatic ‘Wolves Mate For Life’ which gained placements on Spotify’s New Music Friday among other editorial playlists. After her performance at Pop-Kultur in Berlin, IOTA PHI got mentioned at Musik Express, Spiegel and has earned radio play on Radio1.

So here's the deal: IOTA PHI is a pretty darn successful, and incredibly creative musician. Taking on those themes of identity and post humanism she uses her Greek heritage to create incredibly unique music that pays homage to that same heritage. Thus, you should totally give her a listen, and you can check her out on Spotify and YouTube!
