We caught up with Hip Hop Artist Ero Seagull. Heres what she had to say:
How was working with iconic EMI records and signing with EMI’s baby Amour Records?
Being under the umbrella of EMI and Amour Records has been a blessing as my music has been distributed so well and sent to all major Radio stations in Athens where I’m based. The results have exceeded all expectations as I have followers all over the world with my main audience being in the United States. For instance, in one song What’s in a Romeo Featuring Leon Rhymes (Too Many T’s) I have 30,000+ listeners from the US.
How was your debut album received?
It has been loved! I’ve had many great reviews and the people I know tell me the best ☺ in Athens I’ve had a mini gig by the Sounds Good Project in Stoa Fexi and people knew the words and sang along, it was the best experience, they were loving it! Greek major Radio stations like En Lefko and Athens Voice Radio play my songs. We also released a single for Amour Records’ Grecospectiva Christmas Collection which is covers by Greek artists. We released the cover of RUN –DMC Christmas in Hollies and it went great! Here is the videoclip: https://youtu.be/ZIuy1VqyLo8 we had a great time making it. Directed by Ioannis Kampanis an up and coming director.
When can we expect you next release?
I wish I knew my friend. It shall be a surprise.
Has the coronavirus affected your shows?
Yes I had a show in Temple with Leon Rhymes, Danny Wav and Kim Shisha, it was going to be the best I had organised a proper show. Now with this virus everything got cancelled. First God, if it leaves us soon and everything returns to normality I will have the videoclips and the gig. I assume around my birthday on the 12th of June.
Are you booked to play any big European Festivals?
I will release the song “My Baby” first and then I will take as it comes. I can’t make any plans right now.
What album do you wish you’d written?
Dancing with Wolves by John Barry
What would be your dream collaboration?
