From Sofia/Bulgaria comes Donnie Donkov (Dobrin 'Donnie' Donkov), a talented man who began writing songs since he was very young. Over time he learned to play classical and electric guitar, keyboards, percussion, bass and flute and with the help from the new technologies, he edited and mastered his songwriting and compositions. He was in a band called Lithium for a few years after 2000. Donnie was writing, composing, arranging, editing, mixing, recording and mastering his songs on his computer until 2015, when he created 'Donnie Donkov Project' - a formation of guest musicians, editors, artists, music video directors and more, to record studio singles and albums, shooting professional videos, do all kinds projects in the name of ART. Donnie is the only producer of the 'Project' for now. He still writes, composes and arranges everything. Though he says he prefers not to sing his own songs.
“Only 3 of them are professionally recorded for now and recording a fourth one with 'Donnie Donkov Project', but even so, I believe that all songs sound nice. We've got professionally shot official video to "Gone Forever" and at the end of the summer we're shooting another one to "It's a Beautiful Day to Start Over". By the way, recently I began to write so much new stuff - new Instrumentals and songs, movie-like music, kiddy songs... entirely new music, new lyrics', poems, short stories (even began a novel), screenwriting and some other... kind of alternative stuff which are still in progress. I'm full of ideas!!! The other thing is that I realized now I am also interested in some things like marketing, commercial and advertising, photography, music, video and photo editing and montage, directing, acting, all visual arts, painting and so many more... You can say I am expanding myself, hehe. Through exploring everyday new bands, new songs and new styles, I understand the richness of the music so I continue writing all the time”, says Donnie.
Who were your early inspirations?
Each one of my songs is inspired by a significant event in my life, music band or by a person – a girlfriend, friend of mine or even by a member of my family. For this reason I can’t determine exactly, what was the inspiration of my first songs and music. The songs, which I have liked and inspired me at my early age, are all from different music styles, because of the fact that I have went through many different stages of structuring my music preferences. Some of those songs are Bulgarian hits, which are not world-famous, but they were very influential for my development as a composer. ‘The Doors’ and ‘The Beatles’ are classic, they have inspired many generations and musicians. ‘U2’ also had a big impact on my music, though 'Led Zeppelin', Tony Mortimer, 'Rainbow', Sinead O'Connor, 'Pink Floyd' and Michael Jackson had the last word.
How do you classify your music?
My music is serious, even, like some say depressing, depending on the person. When I write, I write from deep inside my soul. For me this is like a healing process. There are always things you can't express or say to other people. I am trying to send a message to the them and their inner thoughts and feelings. I have always admired ‘Pink Floyd’ due to the fact that their music style can’t be exactly determined – their songs are only one of their kind and unique. A lot of people have asked me this question – how do I classify my music and what is my music style. I am always answering I don’t like to limit myself to a particular gender of music. The classification of my music could be done only by people who like and who don’t like certain songs and compositions of mine. I can say for sure that It's not productive for any composer, songwriter to put restrictions and to limit his music only to a certain style.
What do you want listeners to get from your music?
For me are very important the feelings, which my music stimulates in everyone and the legacy which I want to pass to the audience from all generations. When I was young I have saw and felt what an impact the the music from the early 90's had on the audience and me, and I know what an inspiration for the people was the hippie music wave in the late 60's and early 70's. My dream is to influence people like that.
I want to believe that I would contribute for the moral development of the people through a serious and deep music, which also could be a way to remember and save some of the lost memories from the past. I would like to influence people the way I was influenced from songs by great performers such as ‘Led Zeppelin’ for example.
Tell me about any CDs you have and any projects in the works?
We have recorded and released with 'Donnie Donkov Project' a single called "Whisper Volume 1" which Includes 3 of the songs from the upcoming album "Whisper" ("Gone Forever", "Up on my Tower" and "It's a Beautiful Day to Start Over"). Unfortunately the single is available only online, but it's in all online stores. Right now we are recording a fourth song called "Coming Back to You". When we get financed, we'll continue the recordings of the album. The other music which I have recorded, I recorded with my own efforts, with the help of the new technologies at home. Everything that I have recorded I am uploading on the Internet. I haven’t found anyone to produce my music and for now I am the only producer, but nevertheless I am working on 10 new songs and instrumentals. I don’t like to sing my own songs and that is why I am worked with the singer/songwriter Viara Ivanova, who is singing the demos in 5 of my songs. From the fall of 2017 I am gathering a band not only with guest musicians. Though the guest musicians are pretty famous and awesome and fortunately for now there were plenty and great to work with!
Tell me about yourself a little.
Since I can remember, I loved music, I got inspired from it and expressed myself with it. All my life was music. My parents told me that when I was so little and I barely spoke I sang, danced and drummed all the time, haha. Maybe I was 10 or something I liked the late 80’s and the early 90’s. I began from pop, rap, Bulgarian music and soft rock. Later on, in my life, my interest in music moved to hard rock, grunge, metal, punk, jazz, classical and movie music and then I have realized that maybe I can try to write something on my own because I lived with music all the time and it was the thing that mattered the most to me and kept me going. I wrote my first song in 1996. That’s how I found a way to express myself through music. Then my friends liked the songs so I decided to go on writing. I felt from that like never before and I realized this is my calling.
