Introducing Canadian Pop Artist FJØRA Aka Alexandra Petkovski

Canadian pop artist Alexandra Petkovski known under the popular moniker FJØRA, grow up in musical household, at a very young age Alexandra began studying music, alongside her father teaching her play classical piano. These actions led to improv jazz and taking an interest in composition and film scoring. Alexandra later studied music composition, and received her Masters of Commercial Music in Composition and Arranging from Belmont University in Nashville.

Alexandra is now a resident in NYC attending NYU’s Steinhardt School of Music, working toward receiving her PhD in Composition. Last month the talented pop artist released her début EP, WATERCOLOR, featuring popular tracks “Wild Animals,” and “Zodiac.” Today Alexandra aka FJØRA shares the next single from the project titled “Magic.”

Alexandra speaks on the inspiration behind the EP and her name FJØRA:

“WATERCOLOR is my first EP release, which is why it was important to me that it be reflective of the person I am at this moment in time, It’s a little weird, a little quirky, dramatic, fun – a bit experimental and an exploration of the kinds of music I love and never thought I could be taken seriously for before. FJØRA means ‘rolling tide’ and having been strongly connected with water my whole life, it just made sense that this first ‘shade’ of music I share be encompassed by its name – combining the two most significant things in my life. Water and color. I am truly appreciative of this chance to now let it leave its nest and find its place in all of this beautiful world!”
