Sultry Aussie Singer Dioni Premieres Video for "Shades of Melancholy (Chillout Mix)"

Aussie Crooner Dioni Premieres Lyric Video for “Shades of Melancholy (George Priniotakis Chillout Remix) “

Compared to ’60s icons Dusty Springfield and Sandie Shaw, the Renaissance woman from Sydney has traveled extensively throughout Greece, performing in ancient theatres and stadiums in support of bands such as Faithless, Soft Cell, and The Chemical Brothers. Dioni has performed as a solo artist in Australia, France, Germany, Greece, and Qatar. She has a multilingual repertoire (including seven languages) and the ability to sing in multiple genres.

In 2001, Dioni co-founded her group Astyplaz, of which she is still the lyricist and vocalist. She soon caught the attention of veteran promoter Gilles Petelle, formerly of BMG Canada. 

Dioni played around the world, including Quebec City and Montreal, where her label Chic Vinyl Records is based. Dioni has since released two albums, Name Your Slippers and Bi, with Astyplaz (Universal and EMI, respectively), and a third collaborative EP. Dioni has also had tracks featured in numerous compilations, including the internationally recognized Buddha Bar XI series.
