HOME CITY : Moscow

Konstantin Nickolsky was born in 1951, He was a pioneer of Russian Rock Music. Started back as an amateur in the late sixites with Moscow band "Атлантов" with Sikorsky. He worked in lots of offical bands during the 70's, most notibly A guitarist for Stas Naims band "Цветы" and "Festival". Working for Festival he wrote songs for films

In the summer of 81 he joined the band "Воскресение" as a songwriter and guitarist. Writing hit songs such as "Of What the Night Bird Sings" and "Зеркалом мира", the band shot to fame, and these songs became instant classics.

He only recorded 1 album with "Воскресение", "Воскресение 2" It, was recorded in a basment of an old office over 3 days, and is perhaps the most well known album from them. In 1983 he left Воскресение and joined back with "Festival".

After finishing the Gnesini school of guitar music in 84, Nicolsky left "Festival" and formed his own musical group "Зеркалом мира".The band dispanded 3 years later,shortly after taking part in the big concert "Rock Panorama", playing alongside bands like "Браво" and "Рандо". They record any albums.

After the breakup of "Зеркалом мира" Nicolsky is joined by pianist M. Shevtsov and guitarist A. Berezovsky, Nicolsky works on his solo project. He moves towards a calm acoustical style that fits in perfect with his musical meterial. In 1990 His band is joined by bass guitarist and friend A. Kuzmichev and dummer U. Kostikov. He recorded his first solo album in 1991.

Nicolsky begins touring (rather succseffuly) playing songs from this album. And the band is asked to play live on russian TV shows such as "Live water", "Rock-n-roll TV" and "Program A".

The bands listeners are from a wide spectrum, the young people who can relate to Nikosly's songs, and the older folks who know Nikolsky from his work with "Воскресение".
