What do you do when you think you feel everything too much?
Dina’s mind and heart have always been a storyboard of emotions which she felt were amplified a thousand fold. She needed a way to transmute this energy, to open a door that was closed. So she set out to transform what was within her - in a way that could create something beautiful. Air became her canvas and she began to paint with her voice.
The singers life has been filled with music from before she born. She was infused not only with different styles but also different cultures of music. Thanks to the contagious love of music by her parents, music was introduced to her before she knew what music even was. Being raised in a household of classical musicians she was only four years old when she began studying voice, piano, and violin. Unfortunately, Dina’s parents were forced to leave behind their careers in music when the family moved to the United States from Ukraine following the Chernobyl disaster. This alarming turn of events uprooted their life, but to them the beauty of music was far too great for them not to continue to share it with their daughter. Later, Dina also acquired additional training from the Berklee College of Music. Her classical beginnings and education have all come together as the set of ingredients which make her into the singer she is today.
Having worked, performed and written with Grammy nominated composers over the years, she takes each opportunity to learn and grow her repertoire.
Music is air for the singer. She believes deeply that the magic found in music is one of the most important and beautiful things in the universe.
Currently she is working with talented pianist Artem Tenkeli. A casual writing session over What’s App turned into an unexpected songwriting partnership that crosses continents and all odds. Their individual goals, dreams and journey so far have all come together as pieces of one puzzle. Making an amazing dedicated team the two write melodies and stories infused with emotion in a way that makes you want to feel deeper, believe stronger and remember things once forgotten.
