May Roosevelt, is a Greek composer, producer and thereminist.
Born and raised in Thessaloniki, she took violin lessons at the age of twelve. Nine years later her violin was replaced by the theremin, one of the earliest electronic musical instruments. She began performing with various bands in Greece and also recording her own music using theremin, synthesizers and electronic beats.
In 2009 she released her debut EP 'Panda, a story about love and fear', followed by her self-released album 'Haunted' in 2011.
In April 2013, she released her third album, 'Music to the poetry of Ntinos Christianopoulos'
In autumn 2017 she marks her return with her new album titled «Junea», coming out on October 23rd via Inner Ear.
Junea is a heroine of the modern digital world, where reality meets fiction through bridges made of electronic sounds and pixels. Musically, it could be said that she is an alter ego of May Roosevelt, adding new qualities to the artist’s existing musical identity.
In the world of Junea synthesizers rule, creating a multi-layered sound environment of crystal sounds and rhythmic beats. Ethereal vocals and encrypted lyrics lead to a parallel dreamy, three-dimensional universe that mirrors the artist’s exploration into new musical coordinates.
