 Roman’s guitar playing has a swinging rhythm that is impossible not to move to. Eugene’s bass playing is unique in the amounts of variety and technique over the fretboard. Vlad’s drumming is jam packed with precision and smoothness that makes other drummers envious. And Tatiana’s voice is on a whole different level, leaving her contemporaries in the dust. Her ability to transition from clean to growls is unmatched. With her clean singing, Tatiana has a smooth effortless jazz flavor which soothes the soul. Then comes in the growls which are mind blowing in its delivery, deepness and power, punching you right in the gut. I have never witnessed or heard anyone quite like her.
