Check This Out: Pompeya
Occupation:Lead singer/guitarist/song writer
WBD:Where and how did Pompeya begin?
Pompeya begin in 2006 in Moscow as a jamming trio. We used to play gigs with unfinished songs and by improvising lyrics on stage. It was a nice experiment, nothing serious though… Many things have changed since those days. We have performed professionally since 2011 when our first LP came out in Russia – “Tropical” which was re-released in the states in 2013.
WBD:Describe your sound in 3 words.

WBD:What’s coming up for you that you’re excited about?
A lot of things – a new video premiere – Pasadena. It was filmed by Josh Forbes.
Our new LP “Real” just came out on No Shame – and we’re very excited to be back in the states soon to promote it! As well as to perform some special gigs.
WBD:Where do you see Pompeya a year from now?
Anywhere from where we are right now!
WBD:What distinguishes you from other bands?
This is a very hard question for a musician! Hopefully there is something that does… at least we are trying to perform the music we feel there is lack of today!
