Stephanie says, “Mockingbird Days represents the past decade of my life spent in Los Angeles, and in this time, I’ve become obsessed with becoming a better version of myself every day. This journey of personal growth has been isolating, humbling, and at times, the most dark and challenging chapter so far. Through the sadness, there are somehow always rays of light to be found.”
Stephanie Hatzinikolis is a Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter with a passion for creating lush, dreamy, indie-pop vibes while tipping her hat to alt-folk, alternative, and indie-rock. Inspired by the likes of Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens, and The Beatles, her piano-first, melody-heavy style has been praised as “songwriting that breaks our collective hearts.” Her newest EP, Mockingbird Days was produced by Killah Cortez (The Kooks, JJ Wilde, Cheekface) and recorded at New Monkey Studio, Elliott Smith’s former studio, in Van Nuys, CA. The album features artistic and musical contributions from Nico Barouhas and Alex “Gonzo” Gonzalez, with mastering by Joe Bozzi.
