Originating from Australia, multi-platinum recording artist, VASSY, knows how to individualize herself with her effortless dexterity as a singer, songwriter and producer. Her music speaks for itself as her progressive popularity in dance music is massive, with a laundry list of achievements and accolades under her belt. Conquering the DJ world with her authentic sound and catchy lyrics has lead to a No. 1 smash hit with David Guetta & Showtek on their track ‘BAD’ in twenty countries, achieving twelve-times platinum and two gold certifications, with over a billion streams. ‘BAD’ earned VASSY her first IDMA Award for Best Featured Vocalist Performance, and positioned her as one of EDM’s most prominent female vocalists. Her 2015 collaboration with Tiësto & Kshmr on their track ‘Secrets’ racked up to No.1 on Beatport within 24 hours, becoming label Spinnin’s second best-selling single of all time. ‘Secrets’ wound up getting certified five-times platinum and two-times gold, hit No. 1 in twenty-four countries, and scored VASSY’s second IDMA Award for Best Electro Progressive/House track.
In 2016, VASSY made a powerful comeback with her standalone high-energy single ‘Nothing To Lose,’ co-produced with Tiësto, and released on his label, Musical Freedom. The single topped the Billboard Dance Club Charts, hit No.1 on U.S. Dance Radio and vaulted into the Top 10 Billboard Dance/Mix Show Radio charts within the first three months of its release. During 2016, VASSY performed in front of enormous crowds alongside Tiësto at Ultra Miami, Tomorrowland Belgium and Electric Zoo NY. The following year, saw VASSY winning the 2017 award for Best Electronic Vocalist at the World Dance Music Radio Awards in Mexico City. She then returned to Tomorrowland for a special appearance with Afrojack in support of their most anticipated club-house love-infectious single, ‘LOST,’ released through Dutch label, Armada Music later that year. In its first week, the single promptly broke into the Top 5 on Beatport, as well as the Top 5 on the iTunes and Spotify charts in the Netherlands. This year, VASSY took over once again the Ultra Miami main stage to perform ‘LOST’ with Afrojack, and just a few weeks later, their song hit No.1 on the Billboard Dance Club charts — a fourth time solo career achievement for VASSY — marking her sixth No. 1 single within the last four years. The Australian vocal queen released her latest single ‘Somebody New,’ featuring the production of Grammy-nominated duo Sultan + Shepard, and is exciting fans with her fresh emotive sound and rhythmically impeccable production.
VASSY’s also appearing in Tiësto’s latest album Clublife Vol. 5 – China on their evocative track ‘Faster Than A Bullet,’ upholding the ‘Secrets’ power-duo’s reputation.
In addition to her success in dance music, VASSY’s songs have been featured in commercials for Target, Nickelodeon, Sketchers, Victoria’s Secret, and Pepsi, as well as in the television shows Pretty Little Liars, Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy. The versatile artist has also ventured into indie-pop on her No. 1 Billboard Club song ‘We Are Young,’ which was also the official trailer song for Disney’s Oscar-winning movie Frozen and Tina Fey’s film Admission.
VASSY has always prioritized her philanthropic work with charity groups and civil rights organizations. She has dedicated three years in teaching music at AVIVA — a teenage safe house orphanage in Los Angeles — and ran music workshops in detention centers in Australia. She is an active equal-rights ambassador for the NOH8 campaign, a spokesperson for environmental organization Green IT, works with Studio Samuel Foundation to help girls in Ethiopia, volunteers at Skid Row Housing Trust, and supports youth through Playground of Dreams. Be it through her music and volunteerism giving back to the communities, VASSY’s goal is to inspire people to fight for their dreams. Whether she’s singing, writing, or producing music, VASSY has an immensely credible portfolio to admire.
