Ivo Dimchev (BG)

“I’m bored of singing behind a microphone, though I like it, I love the restriction of it… I like the oppression of it, but it's time to revisit the Madonna format.
She failed in it… I saw it at Madison Square Garden… She overloaded it.
We'll do less, more quiet, more kind to the eyes… more loving.”

– Ivo Dimchev.
