Athena recorded her first U.S. album, Ready For The Sun, at The Village Studios in Los Angeles with producer Ethan Allen. Musicians on the record included Deron Johnson, Jimmy Paxson, Michael Ward and Jonathan Flaugher. Kevin Reagan was the artistic director. The record was released in February 2017,[3] with Music Junkie Press calling it "a debut album that should take the US market by storm - there is simply no one like Athena and this album signals the entry of a new star in the American music firmament,"[4] and The Huffington Post calling her voice "both heartwarming and majestic."[5]

One of the songs from the record, "Stronger" has been placed at the end credits of the US movie Swing Away.[6]
