About this project

 One of my songs at one of my concerts.

I was 6 or 7 years old, when I got in touch with music. I went to musical school and there I started learning musical theory. My musical teachers always told me I'm not like all the others. I tried to find something new for myself in music, tried to move out the rules and they always called me a strange person. That's why I'm Oddman.

A story of my life in a couple of words... 

 I learnt to play piano for 5 years and after graduation I started learning guitar at the same musical school.

 

 At that time I wasn't guiessing that I would connect my life with music, but now it's like an air for me - I can't see my life without it. 

 The most foollish fact is that I can't play musical notes. I forgot them all, and you know, I'm not sorry for that. I used to learn all songs by my ear. I just listen to a composition and my fingers play the same. It's even more interesting for me, rather than playing musical notes. When I hear some beautiful song, voices inside my head tell me "Do it, Man, prove you can!"


Musical history  

Two years ago I started writing my own songs.

My first song was written in Russian. It's title "Sleep". That was the song about my bright childish sleep that I remember to this day. And it was the last song written in Russian, my second song was already written in English, where I put all my feelings and all my thoughts connected with music. It's title "Nothing We Need". Unfortunately, today it's the only song I recorded in the studio.  

And all of my subsequent songs are written in English. I can't exactly tell why I do this, but I like it. 

 I give some live concerts in my country and maybe not so many people come to listen to my music, but this feeling, that I have while playing, is one of the best ones in the life. When I sing for someone, my heart starts beating faster, and when I look at the eyes of those standing In front of me, I understand, they feel the same, and this is the best reward for what I do.

 Now faithful my goal is to make my first album and share all my songs with the whole World. I know, it's gonna be a long way, but with your support I'll get a little bit closer to my dream.

All funds go to:

- Recording

- Editing

- Mastering 

- Design for an album artwork 

- Videos

Risks and challenges

Of course, the Universe is full of talanted people, but I want to prove the whole World, that nothing is impossible and Merry Christmas Miracle is a real thing. As it's written in a one of my songs - "If don't open the door, you'll never know what's out there".
