Teya (also known as Thea Devy), is an Austrian singer of Serbian roots. Teodora was born in Vienna, Austria. The singer spent part of her childhood in Kladovo, after which her family returned to Vienna. Teodora studied English and German at the University of Vienna.

Teodora gained her first musical experiences in the high school jazz orchestra, and then on the musical stage in the Broadway Company. She decided early on to devote herself to music. She wrote her first song in 2017, and the following year she started collaborating with Austrian producers. Teodora, aka Thea Devy, recorded the song “Waiting For”.  In 2019, she started working in Switzerland with Kate Northrop and producer Pele Lorient. She also participated in the Beyond Music project.

At the end of 2019, she submitted her song “Judgment Day” for Austria’s internal selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Austrian national broadcaster ORF shortlisted her, but in the end they selected Vincent Bueno to represent Austria. She decided to submit the song to Beovizija 2020, the Serbian national selection for Eurovision.  The song was translated into Serbian by her parents Aleksandra and Petar, and was now entitled “Sudnji dan”. She was selected, reached the final and got the 4th place.

In 2021, she was a participant in the fifth season of the Austrian competition Starmania, under her real name, Teodora Špirić. Teodora did not make it to the finals of the show, but was among the top eight in the competition.

At the end of 2021, Croatian singer Ninski released the pop single “Runaway (Stay)” with Teodora. It is also the first time she presented herself under her new stage name – Teya.

On 31 January 2023, it was announced that Teja, together with Salena, will represent Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023, which will be held in Liverpool. With their song “Who the hell is Edgar” they reached the final, where they ended up in 15th place.
