The BEAT100 community congratulates the first ever BEAT100 World Music Chart winners from the July 8th chart compilation on BEAT100! The official winners include Greek-American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Olivia Hadjiioannou (OH.), UK-based singer and songwriter Niki Tyler, and Dan & Kathy, an Acoustic duo located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These musicians received the most votes from BEAT100 members for their outstanding musical abilities and, in return, have received international recognition, cash prizes, and a global press release from BEAT100.
Living in Athens, Greece, but also spending much time in New York City, Olivia says she was destined to pursue rock music from an early age. “[One day] I received a gift from a family member: a multi-track digital recorder,” she says, “I taught myself about sound engineering and recording and made a home studio. I haven’t stopped recording since that day.” OH. has since made a name for herself as a multi-instrumentalist, a composer, singer-songwriter, and sound engineer, singing, playing, recording, and writing all of the music throughout her EP, ‘Sleeping World’. The symphonic progressive rock artist certainly impressed BEAT100 members this past month with her track ‘Trials’ from her EP, receiving over 20,000 views and over 4,000 votes on the social network.
Following her EP release in February 2013, OH. received much recognition for her work internationally, receiving airplay on radio stations around the world, features on a number of progressive rock music communities, and recognition by music critics and label managers alike, including Nick Katona of Melodic Revolution Records who featured OH.’s music on his DJ Revolution radio show. In addition, OH. is also now collaborating with a number of established artists and will be featured on the upcoming OCEANS5 album, ‘Return to Mingulay’.

The EP “Metallia” has received over 32 reviews from 13 countries worldwide, is in top 10 progressive rock and metal charts and listed as one of the best albums of the year for 2018 on Metal Nation Radio.
“Metallia” by Oh. is an epical prog-metal composition in six parts. A multi-layered sonic piece of ravishing solo electric guitars, time-bending tempo shifts, grooving bass lines and deranged drums.
This instrumental progressive metal album will reveal its intricacies and hidden depths over time. It will extract from your mind pure visions, to mend your mental pictures, preen presumptions and to elicit an element of the unexpected…. because that is what will transmute your subliminal mind map into a remarkable blueprint which will lead you from wherever you are now, to wherever you want to be.
