Vancouver, British Columbia is what The Vlade calls home nowadays, but the singer/songwriter was born on the banks of the river Danube in his native Bulgaria. His love affair with music and art started very early on in his life, with his grandma's songs and paintings. Ever since he can remember, he has always been fascinated by the sounds and colors around him.
The Vlade taught himself to play the guitar around age thirteen and began writing his own music soon after. His current musical style can be described as an eclectic blend of a wide range of musical influences - from traditional folk songs and acoustic sounds to electronic music and hard rock. Over the years that mesh has morphed into a uniquely wonderful style, showcased here on his first lo-fi album release, "Dreams In The Basement".
