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!"
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.
