Soulful and passionate, Stephanie Hatzinikolis caresses the keys on her keyboard. Her fingers flutter and dance across the black and white instrument and her voice, almost with a sense of urgency, fills the room. Her songs are dramatic, intimate, and relevant; a musical journey that takes a listener beyond their personal space and into a more collective existence, swept up into songs that translate deep human emotions and the knowledge that life is, indeed, a battle field but it is also a field of wildflowers.
A self-taught musician, Hatzinikolis has no boundaries and very few rules; piano rock one moment and hauntingly soulful the next, she tells stories. Even her instrumentals contain highs and lows, translating the entirety of human emotions.
For the past couple of years, Hatzinikolis has performed steadily throughout Washington. She recently released her debut full-length album titled "This Side Up"; a raw and heartfelt collection that realizes the entirety of the world, the yin and the yang.
In the universal language of music, Hatzinikolis builds bridges, connecting her audience to each other and a wider understanding that, no matter which field we stand in, the colored glasses we choose can make all the difference.
