Bio

Hey! My name is Anastasia Marie Iliou, but you can call me Stasia. Let me introduce myself. I am a singer/songwriter from Long Island, New York. My music is acoustic pop/rock with a youthful vibe. I play piano, guitar, and violin and have been singing and writing songs since I was 11. Next year, I will be moving to Nashville to improve my craft at Belmont University.
Music is my therapy. I put all my feelings into lyrics and melodies. My ultimate goal in life is to help and inspire people with my music. If I can do that, I will consider myself happy and successful. Music has the power to change lives, and I keep that in mind when I write. I wonder what people would want to hear and what would be beneficial to them. People need “pick me up” songs, dancing songs, sing-a-long songs, and heartfelt tearjerkers. My writing is influenced by books, movies, and both my experiences and those of others.

My biggest influences will always be God and my family and friends. Musically, I could give you an endless list of influences. But just to name a few and give you an idea of my sound and path, I love David Archuleta, Kris Allen, Jason Mraz, The Script, Phil Phillips, Carrie Underwood, Maroon 5, One Republic, Coldplay…the list is getting too long already. Of course I can’t go without naming the greats: The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi…the people that made the music scene what it is today.
The first song I ever sang for a crowd was “Fearless” by Taylor Swift when I was a freshman in high school. That performance raised my confidence tremendously and assured me that music was the only path for me. After that I auditioned for every show I could audition for and played at open-mic nights. I also performed in my school’s orchestra, concert choir, and jazz choir, as well as the Long Island Youth Orchestra. Now music consumes my life.
I hope you can sit back, relax, and enjoy my music. Remember that each song has a story behind it. You can also find my cover videos where they are first uploaded on my youtube channel and facebook page:
