Singing is my life, and I do it all the time... However, there's something else that I enjoy doing... Here you will find all the music updates, photos made in collaboration with local photographers, and other news.
I am officially in the list of performers at Californian Farmers' Markets for the upcoming year - 2018. The number of markets varies from local Oakridge, San Jose to Fort Mason in San Fransicsco. I am very excited about it, since I have already done it this year, and enjoyed the home-like hospitality of farmers and diversity of passers-by. Every market nourishes me as a musician with its own vibe and inspires to go on!
P.S.: it's not only the vibe, but also delicious fresh local produce:))

This is going to be my first show at a popular live music restaurant/bar Angelica's in Redwood city on September 6, 2017. It's a piano night with a great musician Rick Ferguson, and we will perform some jazz/pop music. If you're interested, please visit the website for more details.
Hi Guys, the music competition has ended, and I am among the winners. I took part in the international competition held by a Russian Radio "Shanson Plus". I represented my original song "Fall" there, and with your help I am now on the Radio Shanson Plus, and my song Fall will be live there for 3 months! Thanks to everyone! Thanks for your Likes and Votes!
This was a great event held at Stevens Creek Park a few times a year. There were about 200 people, who came to meet each other, eat some Russian style barbeque and enjoy live music. I was a guest performer, and was pretty lucky to meet some great musicians such as this saxophonist with a great voice - Viktor Rivkin. I think we made a nice improvisation together on the song "Dance Me To The End Of Love" by Leonard Cohen.
I am expecting another baby to be born on May 22d, 2017. So, we did a maternity shoot with one of my favorite photographers Kenny at Rosicrucian Egyptian museum, San Jose. They have a very beautiful garden there.

"Castle Breakout" is an iPhone/Android application, and is a room escape game. The game is in a Medieval style, and while roaming among the castle walls, looking for the exit, and solving many puzzles, you will enjoy a lovely Medieval instrumental music and of course, my song - A Fool. I wrote it in 2016 and recorded with the help of Cloudburst records. I tried to recreate a Medieval atmosphere by bringing some characters of that time and the music.
Here's one of the reviews:
"Sounds like something I'd hear while a cinematic section of GOT [Game of Thrones] is playing"
My husband Alexey has drawn this beautiful logo for me, I'm in love with it! .... and with Him! :)
We were shooting a music video for my songs, and did some of the good shots as well!
