“Pop is really concise,” popstar Kristina Miltiadou begins.

“It speaks to people and is clear in what it says.

“Pop is taking an emotion and speaking to the listener for them to understand – it’s almost like math writing pop songs.

“It’s a calculated beautiful clever arrangements of words and music; hooks and lyrics that help you communicate with people and that’s why you have songs that stay in people’s hearts for decades and decades.”

The 23-year-old has been hooked to pop music since an early age, and made a conscious decision in her early teens to pursue not only a career but a life choice in creating the perfect pop tune.

She remembers the first pop song she wrote at age 14, and knew from that point she would continue down that path, learning all there is to writing music.

And for now, she has collaborated with Australian producer François Tetaz for her self-titled debut album – who most recently celebrated a Grammy win for his work on Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’.

All the songs on this album have been penned by the songstress, with all ten songs crossing a plethora of human emotions but with a raw innocence.

Kristina is taking a short break from performing – something that she loves – to hone her song writing craft.

“I’ve always been in love with pop music and they are the songs you hear when you are young that influence you throughout life,” says the singer.
