Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist who was born in Moscow. Taking classical piano lessons from the young age was a key factor in building up musical foundations, however hearing my parents’ vinyl collection changed the musical perspective completely!
Moving with the family to Australia in 1990, the passion for music was reignited. A decision to study acoustic & electric guitar and bass with some books was definitely a lengthy affair. Ten years later, singing was added to the practice routine and with discipline and determination, a few original songs were written.
Influences include: Jellyfish, Butch Walker, Eleven, Alain Johanness, Steve Marriott, Tommy Bolin, Beatles, Aerosmith, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Queen, Boston, Stone Temple Pilots, Beach Boys, Suede, Fishbone, Grant Lee Buffalo, Chris Cornell,Todd Rundgren, Richie Kotzen, Rufus Wainwright, Harry Nillsson,T-Rex Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Sixto Rodriguez, Uli Jon Roth, Peter Frampton, Pat Travers, Paul Gilbert, Steve Lukather, Leslie West, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen
