Vassy (Ultra Records | Warner | BMG)
This Australian born beauty was raised in the tropics and has been singing since the tender age of 3. With exotic features stemming from her Mediterranean heritage, this starlet on the rise is anything but predictable.

Her music has been heard on several major network television episodes, motion pictures and video games such as Grey’s Anatomy (ABC), Ugly Betty (ABC), Windfall (NBC), Notes from the Underbelly (Warner Bros.), In The Motherhood (ABC), Drop Dead Diva (lifetime), When in Rome (Disney Movie Trailer), Last Holiday (Paramount Pictures), Powder Blue (Blue Snow Productions), Chill Out to the Sounds of Vassy (Sprite Campaign), FIFA (EA Sports Video Game), The Sims (Video Game) and a recent Hilton Hotels ad campaign.
