ABOUT

I am in a process of looking for committed musicians to put a band together in Orange County. Or alternatively I would be happy to join an existing band with emphasis on creating more of an original material or get together as a group and harmonize acoustically. I can practice once or twice a week and very committed. I am into many genres of music from Contemporary to Lounge, from Classic rock to Pop, Blues and Electronica. I am open to collaborate with electronica and incorporate various things - very open to experiment with other talent. Also would love to start writing original material - even though open to sing covers as I did here in the Bay area with my existing band. Originally from Russia, I moved to the US in 1997 to complete my MBA. I was a classically trained pianist and sang since the age of 5, but began my professional singing career later. My musical resume includes weddings, fairs, festivals, musicals, and night clubs. I have performed at Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco, with "Henna and Temporary Tattoos" and "Kung Fu Acupuncture", the Grant and Green, Ashkenaz, Berkeley School of Jazz,The Saloon with "Primitive Rhythm" and other 100 shows at Boom Boom Room and Union Square LIVE series all over the Bay area. I took multiple classes with Blue Bear and Bandworks - as well as the Berkeley School of Jazz.I am looking to take this to the next level this year while moving back to San Diego from the Bay area.

Members Of Band

Had an RnB, Funk and Blues Band here in the Bay area for almost 3 years with gigs once a week, but moving to San Diego and trying to branch out into jazz, electronica and gypsy sound with some harmonies and folk- open to suggestions of how to use the old as a foundation and create a new and more modern sound
