Hello everyone! I am a singer, songwriter and a relentless dreamer. I had a profile on Isina for some time, but I thought it was time for one that came straight from the heart.
I have been singing since I was 3 years old and most of my earliest childhood memories are tied to music. I come from a musical household, but both my parents had to give up on their dreams when we moved to the US from Ukraine. They gave up their dreams so I could have a chance at mine. I work each day in hopes that I have the possibility to give back to them even a part of their dreams for all they have given me.
I have dedicated my whole life to music because music isn’t just a part of me - it makes up who I am. Without it I am a fish out of water and a fish. For me, music gives me life.
I believe creativity is one of the most beautiful things in the world. It teaches us about ourselves and life’s true meanings. It allows us to express and communicate things only felt with the heart and gives us the chance to leave behind something beautiful in this world.
The world around is changing and the music industry has already changed. But I believe that music guided by genuine artistry is very much needed. I am trying to find a way to turn my dream into a reality and have the chance to work with and create with individuals who still believe in the sincere beauty of music.
I have encountered many wonderful people along my journey and have assembled many pieces of this puzzle thus far, but the harsh reality is sometimes in life you have to ask for help. So I put it out into the world (this wish)….meanwhile work as hard as I can and hope with all my heart that the next door will open.
These songs - some covers, some originals are me. Their music, melodies and stories will tell you more about me than anything I could ever write with just text.
