INFORMATION ABOUT THOMAÏ
Apergi was born on 23 December 1988, in Tinos. Her first audience was her parents to whom she would give concerts every night when she was still a child. She studied music from a young age together with classical and electric guitar lessons as well as vocals, hence forming her own unique artistic personality. She attended the University of Patras. Her distinctive voice and her musical influences lead her to the exploration of smooth jazz, dance bossa nova, downtempo electronica, funk, soul and jazz music, while the songs she chose to sing the past years inspire her audience with a sensational movement accompanied by a saxophone and a piano. A spicy touch in her appearances is the nights she spent singing manouche and gypsy swing, with her band Night & Day. Apergi participated in Eurosong 2013 – a MAD show, the national final which selected the Greek entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. Her song, One Last Kiss, was one of the favourites to win. However she did not manage to win and came third out of four participants. In April 2013, Apergi became a contestant in the first season of the reality show, Your Face Sounds Familiar.
