When the spirit of the classics and actual trends are merging into a single harmony
Evgeny became acquainted with music early in his childhood
through fairytales and soundtracks to films about The Three
Musketeers. His first and strongest influence came at the
age of 16 when he was introduced to both punk music and
a group of surf rock musicians, and Evgeny began to
learn the guitar and start his own rock band. Two
years later, he became interested in percussion
and started playing noisy rock music in a number
of avant-garde groups in the style of noise rock,
psychedelia and experimental electronica.
In 2008, Evgeny Grinko toured Russia, including accompanying “Can” ex-vocalist Damo Suzuki and American minimalist composer Rhys Chatham during their concerts in Russia.
In 2010, during a break from noisy rock concerts, the “Valse” (Waltz) composition was written, while on January 1, 2011, Evgeny Grinko’s first solo mini album for the piano “Winter Sunshine” was released.
Also in 2011, the films “Generation P” (directed by Victor Ginzburg) and “Shapito-shou” (directed by Sergey Loban) were released and contained music by Evgeny Grinko.
In 2013, Evgeny Grinko attended a concert in Istanbul, Turkey. After this, he repeatedly attended concerts in other cities of Turkey such as Ankara, Konya, İzmir and Eskişehir.
In 2014, Evgeny Grinko released his third album “Ice For Aureliano Buendia”. The album included the hit song “Valse” and the composition “Serenade”.
Since 2014, Evgeny Grinko lives in a small house in the forest – having moved away from the city to find peace and quiet – where he continues to write new compositions and makes music for documentary films.
In 2015, Turkish pop singer Mabel Matiz released a cover version of “Valse”.
In 2017, “Valse” was played in the Turkish TV show “Cesur ve Güzel” (Brave and Beautiful) in the tenth episode.
In 2018, two new albums are planned for release as well as concerts after a three-year hiatus.
