Daria Stefan started singing in the ‘Miracle Group’ at the age of 6 and she decided to have a solo career as a singer when she was only 9. Since that time she had countless appearances in TV shows in her home country Romania but also in Radio & TV shows all over the world. When she recorded her vocal part for ‘Merry-Go-Round’ she had just turned 12 and we are sure to hear more from Daria in the very near future! Find out more about Daria on her official Facebook page.
Making of ‘Merry-Go-Round’
Romania is full of musical talents and Daria Stefan is another proof for that theory. We found Daria by coincidence, searching for singers on YouTube. We stumbled upon her cover of ‘I Put A Spell On You’
What a performance for an 11 y/o! We tried to invite her but it was difficult to get through and it would not have worked out without the help of Al Atkinson, who managed to establish a contact, so thanks again, Al!
What else to say? This is actually the oldest composition on the album. My dad wrote the song around 1993, some 6 years before I was born. There is still a version recorded in those days on an old cassette but the recording quality didn’t stand the test of time. Then there is a version with Alyona on Lead Vocals, recorded in 2008. My dad played all the instruments except the drums which were done by Peter Kalff, former drummer of my dad’s Beatles Tribute Band. True fans might have heard another version with Alyona on vocals and me on drums. So this is kinda a long story… finally I re-recorded the drums for Chi Might, we changed the arrangement and we gave the track to Daria. Her dad organised a studio where she recorded her vocals and sent the file back to us. Very proud to have her on the album!
