Biography

Galya Chikiss is a singer and composer from St. Petersburg. Over the last ten years she has recorded a remarkable range of music, both as a solo artiste and in collaboration with others. Galya has taken part in many projects, whilst being nominated for the “Golos” prize and winning Artemy Troitsky’s “Stepnoi Volk” award, both in 2012.

Her multifaceted background involves numerous festivals, both at home and overseas. These include: Tallinn Music Week, Manka Boutique Pop Fest (Tallinn), SKIF, Elektromekhanika, Stereoleto, Motherland, Sisto (St. Pbg) , Kazantip, Koktebel Jazz, Gogol Fest, Knizhny Arsenal (Crimea), Afisha Picnic, Avant-Fest, Struktunost’, the Moscow Film Festival, Dark Horses (Krasnoyarsk), On the Grass (Perm), Culture Dialog (Murmansk), The Live Performers’ Meeting (Minsk), Window on Europe (Vyborg) and countless club events.

Galya was born in Vitebsk and moved to St. Petersburg at the age of nineteen. She began her work on stage in the punk ensemble “Nervenklinik” (2003) and then moved to the psycho-pop outfit “188910” between 2005 and 2009. Together with Alexander Dubrovin (guitar) and Alexander Belkov (drums), she founded her own band - “Chikiss” – a little later. The line-up would change often… Such changes would allow Galya to have colleagues like Germany’s Barbara Morgenstern (star of the Monika Enterprise label), Milky Toad (Omsk), Sun Glitters (LUX), Arseny Morozov (Padla Bear Outfit, Sonic Death). With Arseny in particular, Galya created the so-called “mortgage punk band,” Sablya.
