Singer Zoe Behrakis Drew Deep On Her Greek Heritage Echo

With her second single, Echo, now out, singer and songwriter Zoe Behrakis from town of Sudbury, 24 miles west of Boston, hasn't forgotten how she got started and where she stands now, as a Boston College student. 

The pop singer, whose style is an upbeat groove with a chill vibe and chorus, is a psychology student who still performs with her school's student acapella group The Bostonians but it's her family that got her going. 

She started by giving them living room concerts before getting so good she got a voice coach at 13 and came to notice and released a single called Grace earlier this year. 

“They just thought I was a great singer, and encouraged me to continue to share my talents,” she said. Her mother’s family is from outside Thessaloniki and her dad's is from the Mani region of the Peloponnese. 

“I am really proud of my Greek heritage so much!” she said. “I always have been, but I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to appreciate it so much more, especially through my grandparents as they pass things down through the generations.
