First and foremost, I am proud to be a native Pennsylvanian and especially proud of my Russian heritage from my mother’s side. It has greatly influenced my music and my values. I realized at a very young age that Andy Warhol (being a member of our extended family) and I we were kindred spirits. By the time I was seventeen, I had a fire in my heart compelling me to start life on my own. My initial experience with the piano enabled me to understand music more thoroughly and using it to my advantage in composing music. I often wake up in the middle of the night with the music and lyrics flowing through my soul. Every song I compose has a story, or I might say, a message that I feel the need to share. In retrospect I realize that I am usually inspired by something that has affected me emotionally. During these moments I feel called to save these miraculous thoughts, notes and voices. These for me are defining moments of faith. My first album is my humble attempt to share my heart with others. This album represents, in every way, two years of my life. I hope through my music and lyrics others can identify and relate to the successes and worries that beset all of us. Most of all I pray that in some way, I am making a difference.
