"In My Shelter" EP - Recorded in march - december 2015
at TELECLUBproduction, mixed by Dmitry Ragoutenok.

"I always wanted to make music, since I was 7. It all began, when my grandfather showed me the records of Elvis Presley and the Beatles.
I was a big fan of Queen and Pink Floyd when I studied at college. That music influenced me so much at that time and still inspires me in theese days. In 2014 I wrote a few songs and decided to record them, but I couldn't find any musiciants who could play my music with soul, not just for money, you know. I was almost desparate. One day I went to see my friend and he said to me - why can't you do it yourself? You don't have to wait for anyone! He had a point. That's how I went to the studio and recorded my first EP. I think it's all about finding of your own path in this crazy world - that's why I called it "In my shelter" - everyone have their own shelter, and I've got music in my case".

CRIMSON & FOLKS - Magic Fire (EP) (2017)

"Magic Fire" is the second EP by Crimson & Folks, which is a mix of Western and Russian music traditions. You can hear rare Russian folk instruments, such as "Gusli" and emotional lyrics with references to Russian folk tales".
