Q: Tell us your story! Where did you begin and how did you reach the caliber you’re currently at?

A: I’ve been playing music and performing since I was a little girl. I don’t remember when I started singing, if you ask my parents it was when I was a baby, but I remember that I started playing piano when I was 6 years old. I grew up in a musical family as well, where music was and is valued and appreciated. Since then, I’ve always known that I want to be a performer and artist. After graduating high-school, I went on to study at Berklee College of Music. Since graduating in 2019, I have been continuously releasing new music, working on new projects and performing live regularly.

Q: What makes you love what you do? How long have you been making music? Would you call it your passion?

A: Yes, music is my biggest passion in life and I am so grateful it is my job as well. I just love making music and performing it, making a connection with my audience brings me so much joy. I’ve been singing and performing live since I was about 6 years old, and have been releasing my original music since 2018. 

Q: What are some accomplishments or milestones you’ve reached lately?

A: I have had the opportunity to meet and work with many incredible people in the past few years. My song and music video to “dreamhouse” was also nominated at the New England Music Awards in 2022. 

Q: Tell us about “stupid for your love“!!

A: “stupid for your love” is a song I hold very close to my heart. One of the reasons is because I wrote it for my boyfriend and released it only a few days before our anniversary. Another reason why this song is so special to me is because it’s the first song I’m releasing that has a section in my mother tongue — Bulgarian. I am extremely excited to share our beautiful language with my English-speaking audience and hope they love the song as much as I do.  

Q: Do you have any advice for someone who is starting out in the music industry?

A: Yeah, a few. Don’t compare yourself to others too much. Focus on your own path and make sure you enjoy every step of the way. Don’t only focus on your end goals, but on each step. 

Q: What do you want our readers to know about you and your music?

A: I want them to know that I write from the heart and always like to challenge myself. I want to share my story and as I’m doing that, connect with them. We all go through the same things more or less and we need to share our experiences with one another and what better way to do that then through music?
