The Daily Krapht – Athena Hiotis – “Madness” feat. Megan Michelle
It isn’t often that we get to report something we were directly involved in. We are proud to say we have a little “Madness” in us though. Athena Hiotis has been huge supporter of Wordkrapht, and her work has been all over this site from the very beginning.
Whether it is her band, the FeminINDIE featured RÊVE, the music label and songwriting duo, PopRiot Music Group (with Ian Kaine MacGregor), or the mutiple artists from that label, we have worked with her constantly, and with great pleasure.
So, when Hiotis mentioned that she was looking for a specific kind of singer for a project she was working on, Wordkrapht founder & editor, immediately thought of someone who fit the description. Megan Michelle is another artist who has been featured here more than once, most recently in May, 2015 for her track “Morse Code.” After sending Hiotis the article we for that track, she thought it was a great fit. After quick introductions, the ladies got to work, and this beautiful song was completed in no time.
“Madness” will be featured in the upcoming movie Fair Market Value (to be released in 2016), starring Luisana Lopilato & Craig Berko. It is a beautiful song that builds in intensity. Michelle’s soft vocals lay perfectly over Hiotis’ distorted guitars and synths. Here’s hoping to hearing these two collaborate again.
