I was born in the U.S. and moved to Shanghai in 2012. I started singing at about 3 and writing songs at 14, inspired by the Syrian refugee crisis, I wrote Salty Water on my smart phone! It was later heard by Phillip Jarrell and Jeff Bova. (Jeff worked with Michael Jackson, Katy Perry and won a Grammy as a producer on Celine Dion's Album of the Year, "Falling Into You"). In 2018, I wrote and co-produced with Bova and Jarrell my first EP, Salty Water - EP. The song and music video was used by UNHCR to raise money for refugees. In 2019, I collaborated with DJ Shaan, #1 most followed DJ in India and first Indian artist to sign with EMI/Virgin Records. He produced my single, Universe (Sevi Ettinger).
In 2020, I teamed up with multi-platinum winning producer, David Kershenbaum (Tracy Chapman, Duran Duran, Bryan Adams). We started with "Dear Me", which brings a new vibe to my storytelling and then released one of my favorite songs to date, "We Can Be The Universe".
I recently teamed up with Grammy nominated artist and legendary DJ Stonebridge who produced an EDM remix of “We Can Be The Universe” and it drops on Spotify and dance clubs around the world on October 20!
I also have a podcast, Mission to Inspire, so check it out on Spotify!
