Originally from Bulgaria, Stefan Lalchev is a singer-songwriter who has lived in London for over 10 years. His influences include John Legend, Adele, Coldplay and Justin Timberlake.

His first big break came when at the age of 17 he appeared in the first Bulgarian season of Music Idol (Pop Idol). He was one of the youngest contestants that year and came 4th place overall. Following that success he had the opportunity to take part in big tours, concerts and events, performing in front of live audiences of up to 35,000 people.

He earned a Master’s degree with Distinction in Music Industry Management and Artist Development at the London College of Music in 2019 and has recently been awarded the Vice Chancellor’s PhD Scholarship to carry on with his studies at a PhD level.
