Tell us everything will need to know about you.
I’m gay. I love art. I love contemporary art. I like to experiment. But I also like to make beautiful songs.
State your favorite genre of music and your reason.
Beautiful vocal music is always attractive to me. Kindness is a big plus.
Tell us your experience as a musician.
I don’t take myself very seriously as a musician, because I have been for too long busy with contemporary dance and theatre. But I’m getting used to this new situation. I just want to be as good as possible. Because mastery is freedom. But I’m not yet there.
Tell us the theme of your song.
Just another stupid love song. From those that confirm the beautiful tragedy, we are always trapped in.
Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.
Dimitar Gorchakov is a great pianist who I have toured a lot in the last few years. Georgy Linev did some really good productions of some of my songs.
Tell us about your future goals.
I would love to collaborate with more diverse producers who can give me a totally new perspective on my songs. I hope to meet some of them here in London.
Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.
Religion unites but also separates. When a religion’s main tool is fear sooner or later it’s getting really fucked up.
Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.
Most of my songs are sad. I have no idea why people are happy after my concerts. It’s a contradiction for me.
Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry.
Changes are always good. It takes us out of the comfort zone and challenges us to be adequate and fresh. I’m personally not afraid of changes, because in general, I get easily bored.
State the artists you cherish most and your reason.
When I was younger I was listening to more music than now. I was listening to jazz singers and gospel singers.
I loved gospel singers cos they were the only ones who can improvise and I love to improvise myself.
Give us the links to your social network and stores.
Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.
It’s the hardest part for me. Usually, I hate them in the beginning because I always think that they are very banal. But later I get used to it, and if people really like the song I totally forget how banal they are. Most of the interesting lyrics I have written as dramaturgical texts which later I turned into a song. But If I write the music first, then the lyrics are most of the time about heartbreaking love. No escape.
Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.
I love singing alone. I have the feeling that I’m enough, but having a great band is probably also a good experience. I had very nice moments when I was touring with a pianist and a cellist. Maybe soon I will come back to these more conventional settings.
Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people dance or making the kind of music with a genuine message that inspires them.
I think both ways are necessary. For me, music is always a physical experience. I hope I can soon make a song that makes you move and be happy and not only cry and be happy.
Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.
I sit on the piano and start pressing keys, my voice automatically starts kissing with those harmonies, and then they have intercourse, and then a song is born.
Go into detail on the recording process of this song.
Piano, voice, and string orchestra are recorded in Bulgaria.
Music production and mastering are done in LA by Kan Wakan.
But actually, I’m planning to collaborate with other producers on this track and have more versions.
Discuss your music performance.
They say I’m interesting and captivating on stage and that I look very confident. I’m happy I can manage to create this illusion because I’m always worried about millions of things during a concert.
Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist.
I still have a lot to learn, but I think I have a lot of qualities already. I’m really looking forward to seeing myself as a musician in 2 years from now.
