Originally from Russia, I now live in the South West of England. I am a vocalist who covers a variety of famous Jazz, Pop and French songs. I also write, record and perform my original music compositions. I have a specialist music education from the Gnesins Russian Academy of Music in Moscow. I have previously performed with the Jazz orchestras, Jazz bands and combos.
I would like to form a Jazz duo / trio / quartet / quintet to be able to get paid gigs. I want to start advertising at the local hotels and clubs to play at the events, parties, etc.
I am also interested in doing jam nights, recordings, joining some interesting projects. Every opportunity will be considered!

But Not To Me
But Not To Me Year: 2019 Genre: Jazz
This is my original song, for which I've used the lyrics of an American poet Sarah Teasdale. It was the middle of winter, when I suddenly found this beautiful poem about springtime. And I composed the melody within 10 minutes or so. And then Steve Dow created this fine and mellow guitar accompaniment.
Over The Rainbow
Over The Rainbow Year: 2011 Genre: Jazz
This beautiful song composed by Harold Arlen is the one of my most favourite ever. It has been recorded in 2011 with the piano accompanist from the Russian Gnesins Academy of Music in Moscow, where I was studying at the time.
Don't Know why
Don't Know why Genre: Jazz
Moon Room Year: 2015 Genre: Acoustic
This song was written by Oliver Kirkland, who also played guitar accompaniment for this track. He composed this song years ago, and since then he was looking for a suitable vocalist to be able to record it. So he finally found one, and here is the outcome :)
Paroles Genre: Other
This song was originally performed by Dalida, and I love it. I was trying to copy her accent, so please don't judge my French too much. Still hoping to record this song with the live instruments.
In A Sentimental Mood
In A Sentimental Mood Genre: Jazz
One of my most favourite Jazz ballads written by Sir Duke.
