I met with Floralyn a couple of years ago. I heard her perform in the old capital of Bulgaria – Veliko Tarnovo. It was a warm evening in May or June, on a Friday and I just took a train from Stara Zagora to jump for the weekend to visit some friends. And there I hear how she played on the harp and sang under the stars. We met after the concert and started chatting. She is one of the most determined people I know in chasing her dream. And today you get to meet her as well.
Introduce yourself in a few sentences.
Eccentric, melancholic, and emotional. Very deep ya know. I’m Floralyn.
How did your love story with music begin and how has it evolved over the years?
Even at a very young age when I played my father’s tapes. Back then I didn’t know how to make music, only how to sing. Now I know exactly how it’s done. I am passionate about and that passion continues to develop and get stronger. Music is in my blood.
What would you say is your biggest highlight so far and how do you want to develop your dream in the future?
My warm-up for Ed Sheeran in London and playing my debut tracks on BBC Radio. Now I want to release my first album. Sales started a couple of months ago.
How do you find the motivation to deal with difficult moments and challenges on your way?
That I have a duty to God and a mission to which he has sent me and which I must fulfill. He motivates me to keep going.
There are undoubtedly many people who love music but are hesitant to pursue a career in the sector. What would you say to them?
If they’re doing it for money, they better not be doing it, but if they have something to say and leave behind something that’s authentic, then the whole universe will be with them and they can’t help but succeed.
What song do you think best describes a person’s pursuit of a dream and why?
David Guetta & Sia – Flames
