I have spent many years playing and writing songs and music. My love for both music and translation blend happily together, and I produce singable English translations of Russian songs, preserving rhythm and rhyme schemes while observing the rules of professional translation, enabling artists to perform their own or others’ works authentically in English.

Have a look:

Four songs by the Russian folk-rock group Skolot:

Fare thee well

An Autumn Roundelay

To all his greatness

The Star
