On the 2.06.2016 in club Terminal 1 in Sofia, Petya Dankova presented live for the first time her debut album "Sweet or Bitter". On stage, live, Petya is a master of her ability to deeply communicate through her music and the energy it brings. Brewing for the last 4 years, this explosive mixture of neo soul, jazz and funk will hit the stores by end of June 2016.
Petya loves every aspect of the creation of this project. Every song is a reflection of her real life experience – love, happiness, the ability to share your experiences with the ones closest to you. One of the most prominent musicians in Bulgaria – Radoslav Slavchev (Riverman), Miroslav Ivanov, Bojidar Vasilev (Trom Bobby), Vassil Voutev (Soulization) and the lyricist Svetoslav Sotirov are the core team behind the album.
We love, argue, learn from one another, maybe get just a bit wiser. I was so impatient to share with you "от Аз до Ти". The first song in Bulgarian from my upcoming album.
I would like to extend my thanks to Bojidar Vassilev - Trombobby for this composition and the shared positive energy during our sessions together. I would also like to thank Radoslav Slavchev - Riverman and Miroslav Ivanov . I'm learning so much about making music and you are always beside me when I need you. I would also like to thank Svetoslav Sotirov - my muse for the fantastic lyrics and Rosica Angelova for the inspiration and the perfect dressing of my thoughts.
I would also like to extend my gratitude to Mila Georgieva and Billiana Slaveykova for the support and the faith in my project.
Thank you Polina Gerasimova for the exemplary cover art for the new single.
Stay tuned for a lot of new music from me and now just listen to "от Аз до Ти"
Обичаме, спорим, учим се един от друг и един до друг, може би мъъъничко помъдряваме. Нямах търпение да споделя с вас "от Аз до Ти" - първото парче, което издавам на български език от албума, върху който работя в момента. Благодаря изключително много на Божидар Василев - Trombobby, за това парче и за цялата споделена енергия, по време на работата ни заедно. Благодаря на Радослав Славчев - Riverman и Мирослав Иванов, от които научавам толкова много и които са винаги до мен. Благодаря на моята муза Светослав Сотиров за този така истински текст. Благодаря на Росица Ангелова за вдъхновението и точното обличане на мислите ми. Благодаря на Мила Георгиева и Биляна Славейкова за подкрепата и вярата в моя проект. Благодаря на Полина Герасимова за тази така красива корица.
Очаквайте скоро още много нова музика, но сега се насладете на от Аз до Ти!
