The promising new artist Mikhael Paskalev is releasing his debut album next year, and he will be presenting this material at The Øya Festival in August. We are excited, and so is the artist himself. We predict that his fangroup will grow considerably during the next nine months.
Every year, the Øya Festival picks out a few artists who made an impression at the Club Day the previous year. This time, Mikhael Paskalev will be playing his first gig in the park, in front of a large Øya-audience.
Paskalev writes great songs in the musical landscape between americana and indie pop. He says his inspiration comes from the likes of Paul Simon, The Shins and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. His songs are wonderfully catchy and they have the ability to become favourites rather quickly. Try I Spy for instance. He has started working on his debut album which he plans to release after The Øya Festival. Expect lovely festival tunes, suitable for the Oslo park life.
