About

My story began in 1998, when inspired by Backstreet Boys' music I started singing, dancing, and writing pop music at the age of 9. In 2006 at the age of 17 I became widely known in my country as a contestant of a popular "Akademiya" music show, hosted and mentored by the most prominent pop stars of Azerbaijan, eventually finishing 5th and promoting pop punk and alternative rock music among young and adult fans.

In 2007 I finished 5th in Eurovision Song Contest's National Selection followed by another participation in 2012. In 2014 I once again fought for a chance to represent Azerbaijan in Eurovision Song Contest and finished 3rd.

In 2007 I was featured in a "Virus of Love" musical, staged at Azerbaijan State Russian Drama Theatre in Baku, as a singer; in 2017 I was featured in a gothic sci-fi play "D4rkly Your Retrorockets Fl4re", staged at the Flamboyan Theatre in New York, this time as an actor, singer, and songwriter.

To date I wrote over 400 original songs, 50 poems, released two singles, produced one short clip, and also wrote for few famous artists in Azerbaijan. My main musical influences are Backstreet Boys, The Beatles, Oasis, Madonna, George Michael, Lenny Kravitz, U2, Disclosure, and eastern music.

I worked as a copywriter between 2011 and 2015 for local and international brands and companies. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in International Law and speak Azerbaijani, English, Russian, and Turkish fluently. I love soccer and played on a junior level between 2001 and 2005. I am deeply dedicated to living life spiritually.

Since 2015 I live in New York and currently working on my debut EP along with other pop music projects.
