Discography

"Candace" -- BRAND NEW !
Candace is a beautiful but vain girl, who promised the world to her boyfriend until he found out that all her words were fake and that she planned to marry another guy and leave town...
The music and the story are close to "Hey Joe" (Jimmy Hendrix). Another song with a smilar story and feeling is "Where The Wild Roses Grow" (Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue).
Shortly after I've finished the lyrics, I read the incomplete stage play "Woyzeck" by the German dramatist and writer of poetry and prose Georg Büchner. I found this amazing text's story and mood very close to those of the song and could identify the song's characters with the ones from the play.

"Life Is Like Me" -- BRAND NEW !
This song is in fact not about life but rather about the one that tells the story. It is the result of a self-reflection and realization that one can be poisonous to others, and that even when starting from good intentions...
The song style is close to Mando Diao's "Dance with Somebody".

"Don't Ever Try (2 make UR problems mine)"
With Veronika Hepperle on the mic!

"Spirit of Malta"

Bio

My name is Pavel Atanassov and I'm a songwriter and not a professional musician. I've been playing the guitar since I was 14 and have been writing music since I was 25.

I listen to and have been influenced by many kinds of music, starting with heavy metal, rock, new wave, passing through hip-hop & rap, electronic and dance, and reaching to ethno & world music, such as bulgarian & greek folk, as well as oriental and indian music, for example.

Cheers!
