Sertari / Press

“Winner - Best Singer/Songwriter EP 2014: "Beneath the liberating, carefree vibe of this exceptional collection of songs, is an undeniable and earnest pursuit of vocal and acoustic perfection, to which end Sertari succeeds marvelously"”

"On December 20th get ready for Sertari’s “Unplugged EP”. This one is more than you could ever expect with Sertari‘s smooth vocal stylings. This one is a must for any serious audiophile. Be sure to pickup your copy in a little while! Bravo!!!"

"Sertari’s most distinctive aspect is probably the sheer beauty of her direct, soulful and highly emotional vocals. Her brand new unplugged EP highlights these qualities more than ever before. Acoustic songs are, by nature, more stripped-down and minimal, only relying on a few elements to fulfil a broad range of expressivity. This is where Sertari truly shines. Her vocals have enough room to take the main place under the spotlight and they interplay beautiful with the acoustic guitar melodies. This EP is all about capturing beautiful, organic and natural performances, and I just couldn’t think of a better idea to fully highlight the singer’s incredible range and tonal diversity. I can only imagine how good these songs will sound within a live setting! "

"Teardrops" is an upbeat and danceable taking on a very sentimental subject. The lyrics focus on a story of loss and the challenge of dealing with loss, but the music is very hopeful and uplifting. A solid four-on-the-floor drum beats keeps this tune in the pop realm. In fact, if it weren't for the somewhat saddening subject matter of the lyrics, I could see the song being bumped in the club. Supple piano arpeggios carry the main melodic content of the song's instrumentation with compliments from a full rock outfit. The guitar wails in and out with a nice overdriven lick here and there. The drums are big and full with prominent rolls through the verse and a nice down-tempo breakdown through the chorus. Soaring vocals from Sertari are the main feature of the song. She carries the songs well through the verses with a solo vocal track, but then we get gigantic layer vocal arrangements later as the song progresses into the choruses. "

"Her single “Teardrops” showcases a blanket of beautiful synth melodies, as well as some really uplifting lead vocals, with all the hooks in the right places. With a name that reminds me of some ancient Goddess, Sertari blends electro, pop and rock in a soulful and powerful way. Her lyrics are meaningful and thought-provoking, and the vibes of this particular single remind me of some of Robyn or Coldplay’s latest work, but with a more direct rock vibe."

"...the Greek/Cypriot born talented designer’s ‘fash-spiration’ comes from her Greek Goddess heritage, the collection showcased 16 models wearing beautiful gowns acting like mannequins and Dolls accompanied by a live performance from the famous Anglo-Cypriot singer Nicola Sertari - the crowd was amazed by the presentation and sipped champagne while admiring the collection."

““It really is only a matter of time before Sertari is the name muttered from every mouth. Talented beyond measure and a unique and diverse performer, she has amassed a major following within the UK and other parts of Europe. #Beinspired””

“Anyone who saw Sertari perform at the Petersfield Summer Festival or above The Square Brewery will know that she’s pretty special. Her mix of pop, rock and electro have won her a legion of fans across the UK and an even bigger audience in her family’s native Cyprus. Sertari is one performance away from the finals of the UK Open Mic 2012 competition and a gig at the O2 Arena in London. She is one of the favourites to progress from next month’s regional final in Fareham having sailed through the previous round. She was one of the star performers at the summer festival and is a regular draw at venues in Portsmouth, Brighton and Guildford. Sertari is backed by guitarist Alex Canadine and her drummer, producer Ben Knight, while her influences range from Van Halen and Guns n Roses to Madonna and No Doubt.”

“Lovely - Different to what we’ve heard today. Great vocal technique and wonderful confidence. A strong act.”
