Sasha was born in Moscow. Her father was a pilot, her mother was a flight attendant. During her teenage years she was a professional figure skater. Her other passions always included singing and dancing. Distinguished from her Russian contemporaries who were raised on Russian music, Sasha was exposed to word music through her parents international travels and their love of the English language bands.
Her early influences were Michael Jacksons «Triller» and his video «Bad», as well George Michaels albums and concerts and videos of Madonna. At the age of 15 Sasha organized her first dance group which performed at many venues throughout Russia. The success of this group allowed Sasha to record her first songs.
When Sasha was 19 she attracted the attention of Yuri Aizenshpitz – the legendary music producer. At once they began to work on Sashas first album and her first music video whish appeared on MTV Russia. The reviews of her first work produced critical acclaim in the media. She was being touted as the «Russian Modonna». This was followed by touring all over Russia with great success.
Soon after, her appearance on the covers of Playboy and Maxim and numerous artcles in Cosmo and Vougue only increased her popularity. Her unique beauty was noticed by the famous Russian art foto studio «Fresh Art». They included Sashas photos as part of their exhibition. Sasha has also appeared in a Vougue special edition photo layout done by Bryan Adams.
In spite of her tremendous success in the Russian music industry Sasha feels as
though she did have compromise between Russian musical taste and her own creative fulfilment. She has always dreamed of something more. Sasha is now free to realize those creative dreams she has always had. Her new album in English starts the new era of her musical passion that reflects her true feelings.
