With a natural raspy voice reminiscent of Brian Adams, Rod Stewart and Don Henley, Roman's first exciting and energized US single “TURN IT UP” is set for an April 2016 release on Domo Music Group.
Originally born in the small Russian town of Gorky, Roman grew up in Moscow. He’s performed with a who’s who of international musicians including Chris Slade (AC/DC), Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest), Kerri Kelli (Alice Cooper, Slash Snake’s Pit) Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P, L.A. Guns), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake), and Teddy “Zigzig” Angreadis (Gun N’ Roses, Chuck Berry). He wrote and performed an original song for the Olympics in Sochi 2014 with a symphonic orchestra and Yuri Bashmet -- one of most respected classical musicians in the world.
Invited to Los Angeles by a music-management company to front the rock band Troy Harley, Roman has performed on the Warped Tour in over 40 US cities and Canada. He has also toured with “Nickelback” in Russia and Belarus.
In 2015, Roman began working with Grammy nominated songwriter-producer Thomas Marolda (Imagine Dragons, Killers, Bon Jovi, Cher) in Los Angeles. Through that association, he began collaborating with Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons) and has now completed recording numerous original songs with Marolda. He’s rehearsing with his full band for upcoming shows and a tour while his first single, TURN IT UP will be released in April of this year. He’s building his fanbase and raising his profile to coincide with a proposed Richie Sambora/Orianthi tour of the states and world. Endorsed by the Ernie Ball (Music man) and Mesa Boogie guitar companies, Roman was the face of the fashion companies Suck, Ray-Ban, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Philipp Plein. Of late, Roman has also been working as a composer for selective Russian TV series and movies.
As a member of the most popular boy band in Russia called “Chelsea,” Roman performed over 400 shows with “Chelsea” around the world including Russia, USA, Europe, at the Olympics in Beijing, and at the UEFA Uero Soccer Cup in Munich. He’s been showered in praise, having received 3 Russian Grammy Awards, a “ZD” Award for Best Band, a “ZD” Award for the sexiest man in Music and was named the “Most Talked-about Person in Music” by MTV Russia. Roman received a MTV Russian Music Award Nominee as “Best New Band” and in 2011 participated in the number one TV Show “Star Factory” Best of The Best and took 2nd place.
With a father who was a manager and producer of a famous 90’s pop star in Russia, young Roman grew up back stage with musicians on tour in a show-business environment. After graduating from the Humanitarian University of Moscow, the aspiring rocker became a finalist on the highest rated TV show “Star Factory” 6. Hot off that recognition, Roman recorded duets with the Scorpions, and the Swiss rock band Gotthard.
In addition to the release of the new track, Roman is currently in the studio with legendary producer Bob Rock who is at the production helm for the song “WE AIN’T GIVNG UP”. The song is written and performed by Richie Sambora and Roman and will be used to kick off the World Peace Tour in Russia. Hopes are high for a world tour opening/supporting slot with Richie Sambora/Orianthi to promote their debut as a duo. Now, Roman’s poised to conquer America and the rest of the world.
