Metaxas ~ Selene

METAXAS Selene Artwork!

Who is METAXAS?  An interesting and extremely talented singer-songwriter, born in New York and based out of London, with an all-encompassing blend of folk and indie sounds!

My first impression of “SeleneA dark yet powerful depiction of one-sided love and unbridled infatuation!

My take : “Selene” is the beautiful and heartfelt debut from METAXAS and I am undeniably riveted by it.  By forging a Jeff Buckley meets Jose Gonzales type of style into such a mesmerizing song,  the unique and deeply personal caress of “Selene” is truly memorable.  Amidst fluid guitar strums, a passion filled vocal and a slow realization around a love that will never be, I can’t help but feel a little envy towards having the courage to put it all out there for someone else no matter the consequence.  And even though “Selene” feels hopelessly naïve and disappointing on the surface, the willingness to peel back the layers of self-doubt and uncertainty to reach for something or someone who may seem out of reach, shines through in the end!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
