Jevhenia Vlasova

Eugenia Vlasova. Her strong, bright and distinctive voice along with her love for music were the key factors in her further destiny. In 1994 she entered the R. Glier State Higher Music College majoring in variety vocal and successfully completed it in 1998. While on her second year she started taking part in various music contests and in 1996 eventually became a prize-winner of the "Song Vernissage". Even now, looking back at her first appearance at the Ukraina Palace of Culture, she is still anxious: " my knees were shivering, I was scared to death and could hardly keep myself from running away". But in the end the debut took place and provided Ukraine with a new rising star.
Eugenias performance at the "Slavyanskiy Bazaar" festival in Vitebsk, Belarus, where she achieved a laureate status turned to be an important stage in her carrier. There were two songs sung: "Sizokryliy ptakh" (Gray-winged bird) penned by Volodymyr Ivasyuk and "Ne zabuvay" (Dont forget) which may be considered as her first noticeable hit. Then, in November, 1998, followed a trip to the Italian city of Rimini, a home of the 1998 "Queen of the Song" international song contest. Especially for that occasion Kim Breitburg and Nikolay Trubach had written a number called "Vyberi menya" (Choose me) but according to the contests regulations each and every artist was supposed to sing in the language of his or her home country therefore a Ukrainian version of the song was made. Retitled "Muzyka dusha moya" (Music is my soul) it ensured Eugenia Vlasova the unconditional victory. Despite the "fearful" date, Friday, 13th, Eugenia left Italy collecting the Grand Prix as a trophy.
The young aspiring singers success attracted attention of music industry. Then followed the impressive appearances and prize-winnings at the annual "Song of the Year" festival (its Russian-Ukrainian version held in Kiev) summarizing the results of 1997 and 1998.
Around the same time (in 1998) Eugenia became a winner of the "Golden Fortune" All-Ukraine open popularity poll in the "21st Centurys Hope" nomination. Those days her repertoire was only shaping and "Ne zabuvay" (Dont forget) was the most appreciable song. In 1999 Eugenia penned "Wind of hope", the song unnoticed by the listeners at the time but doomed to dramatically change her status in the years to come. Within that time period Dmitriy Kostiuk became her manager.
Impressed by her huge potential he placed his stakes on "Wind of hope". The deafening success of the song made it Eugenia Vlasovas trademark. "Wind of hope" has radically changed the singers image establishing her as a force to be reckoned with and launching her to long-awaited stardom.
November 2001 saw the release of the "Wind of Hope" full-length album which has sold in amount of almost 100.000 copies and to this day remains in demand.
Eugenias carrier was growing strong, a string of new videos and hits, "Severnoye siyaniye" (Northern lights), "O tebye" (About you), "Budu silneye" (Ill be stronger), "Plach obo mne" (Cry about me), just to mention a few, followed the head start. She found a firm lodgement upon Ukrainian music Olympus but, as it frequently happens, at the most unexpected moment a break occurred. In 2004 Eugenia Vlasova became a mum and for a long time had fully devoted herself to the motherhood and domestic cares bringing up her daughter Nina.
Having missed the stage so much all that period she returned to full-time music activity in 2005 and the first result turned to be a joint effort with Andru Donalds (one of the voices of famed Michael Cretus ENIGMA). It was Eugenia who first phrased an idea of making something new in a duet exactly with Andru for she was, and still is, his die-hard fan. He listened to some of Eugenias recordings and found himself stunned by her voice and her singing style. Shortly after Dmitriy Kostiuk discussed the possibility of the joint project with him and eventually, on May, 11, 2005, the respective contract was mutually signed.
Since June, 2005 the artists had been working hard in the studio and now the four duet songs are the result.
Only time will tell what will follow. Just stay tuned for the new songs and be faithful to your sympathies!
