Katerine was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and moved to Greece as a teenager. She currently lives in Athens, where she has been studying law at the Kapodistrian Univeristy.

She started singing and writing songs during her teenage years. Her voice is described as warm and soulful. In 2014 she released the song "One in a million", and in 2015 she released her debut album, "Embodiment", with songs written by herself and the Swedish singer-songwriter Albin Lee Meldau.

The ERT Working Group sees Duska as a singer with a special voice, which is highlighted by the compositions and lyrics she signs herself. She also represents a modern musical stream that does not reproduce industrial stereotypes.
