Dolphin (Delphin)at Live 8

Dolphin, also known as Del'fin or Delphin; is the superstar of Russian alternative music culture… The sales of his albums have reached over hundreds of thousands of copies all over the country… Thousands of people know his lyrics by heart, and for the most of them his art became the philosophy of their life… Dolphin.

Dolphin's musical career started in 1992 when he joined the infamous Russian boy's band of the 90's - "Malchyshnik" ("Bachelor Party"). It was at that moment that he realized it was time to stop selling "matreshkas" and breakdancing at Arbat street and actually try to achieve something in the music business. Quickly, he became the obvious leader and author of practically all lyrics.

Dolphin's appearance in "Malchyshnik" immediately changed the band's image and turned the boy's band creation into a brand new project, whose main idea was to shock the public. Everything about "Malchyshnik" - their lyrics, behavior at concerts, the image of the guys - all was about epatage. The band's biggest hit single was Dolphin's song "Sex Non Stop" (the very name of the song was absolutely unacceptable to the post-Soviet pop music of that time).

In 1993, still being in "Malchyshnik", Dolphin started recording his solo tracks, feeling a need for creating something different. Since 1996, when "Malchyshnik" split up, Dolphin continued to produce album after album, striking his fans and music critics with shrill and frank lyrics and powerful sound. During his musical career Dolphin released 13 albums.

Dolphin's incredible live performances earned him the love, respect, and acknowledgement of tens of thousands of people, which attend his concerts each year.

He became a cult person and an idol of a whole generation, but at the same time he stands aside from Russia's rock and pop so-called "elite". He was never estimated as any musical type with the generally used term. Though, conditionally, he describes his style as: poetry reading, with an edge - to an electronic/rock beat.

A unique and remarkable poet, Dolphin is respected by professional writers, and the National Russian Writers' Union acknowledges him as one of the most outstanding modern poets. The sincerity of his creativity never leaves anyone indifferent. In the year 2000 Dolphin was awarded one of the most prestigious Russian awards - "Triumph" - for his contribution to the national music culture.

In 2002 he signed his contract with Universal Music Russia. His last album "Zvezda" ("The Star") has been released 21.03.2004.One of the album's tracks, "Glaza" ("Eyes") was written and produced by Dolphin together with Stella Katsoudos, a well known after her collaborations with Peter Gabriel, Trent Reznor, and Ministry.

Launch-Party for the album "Zvezda" - a big concert in the Moscow Estrada Theater - became a really memorable event of the spring season in Moscow.

The singles from the album, "Vesna" ("Spring") and "Romans" ("Love song") were at the top of Russian radio charts for over 20 weeks! They brought Dolphin to a new stage of popularity and a new wave of recognition throughout the country.

In 2004 Dolphin was nominated for and awarded the highest Russian musical awards, including; "Best Artist" in the RMA (Russian MTV Awards), "Best Artist" in the Radio Maximum Awards (Russia's major rock station), "Man of the Year" in the "Choice of MK" (MK being the most popular Russia's daily newspaper).

In 2005 Universal Music Russia released the live re-edition of the "Zvezda" album.

Also in 2005 NFPF (the National Federation of Phonogram Producers) along with the Russian media agency Intermedia awarded Dolphin with the diploma "for the contribution to the future" (for always being in the vanguard of Russia's music).

O n July 2, 2005, he became the headliner of the Moscow part of the global Live 8 Concert.

Dolphin's new album is planning to be released in the spring of 2006.
