"Everything You Ever Wanted" by Mike Stoyanov
released July 22, 2022
Mike Stoyanov is a rising indie rock'n'roll artist from London who combines influences from Oasis, The Strokes and The Libertines in a powerful explosion of raw energy that will make you want to jump as high as you can and sing along at the top of your lungs. As Mike puts it "my sound just punches you in the face, man and forces you to submit."
Mike says his new single "Everything You Ever Wanted" is a song about chasing your dreams even when it's hard, especially when it's hard.
This song is dedicated to those who are not afraid to jump in the water. When I started this whole music thing there was so much stuff I had to figure out and yeah it was a bit scary but that didn't stop me. You can spend your whole life on the shore scared of the water because you can’t swim, but see, man, the only way you can learn to swim is to get in the f*cking water.
At the end of the day I am just following my dreams, man, if some people think that makes me crazy so be it, maybe I am a little crazy. Life’s too short not to follow your dreams, man (Mike Stoyanov).
Produced by Michael Smith who’s previously worked with Wolf Alice, Elvis Costello and Anteros
Mike has been in several rock and blues bands throughout the years but 2020 with the pandemic and all restrictions was the year when he decided that the time is right to start his solo career. Always following his heart and never afraid to speak his mind he is just what rock'n'roll music needs right now.
Mike's debut single "Star" released in 2021 has been described as "alternative rock with ALL CAPS ON" (ArtistRack) and "the first song you should play when you wake up" (The Sounds Won't Stop).
The follow up single "No Regrets" brought some more of that loud and unapologetic rock'n'roll with the opening line of the track making a statement about what we can expect from Mike as he announces "I don't know what it means to give up, if I get going I just won't stop"
Here is what Mike says we can expect from him:
You know, I am not a dreamer man, I am a believer and I will bring rock'n'roll back to the top of the charts, man. You might say that's a bit cocky from a guy who is just starting out but if I don't believe who the f*ck would? I don't know where I would be in five years time but I do know that you can't escape your destiny and my desitny is to be a rock'n'roll star.
