“Blessed is he who expects nothing,
for he shall never be disappointed.”
― Alexander Pope
Arthur is an accomplished Musician and soulful Singer/Songwriter based in Switzerland and Germany. His dual ability to dabble in both acoustic and electronic soundscapes sets him apart. On a mission to make his audiences smile and enjoy life as much as he does, Arthur’s music charms enlighten and delights a varied audience the world over.
Hailing from Kazakhstan, and being raised in Germany as the son of a music Professor, it was only natural that music would become Arthur’s lifelong ‘partner in crime’.
With his ukulele in hand, Arthur has traversed a dynamic career path, spanning several countries over almost a decade. He has been a Chemist and an Audi Test Driver in Germany, a Bartender in Australia, Tree Planter in Canada, and a Cinematographer in Switzerland. Over the years, Arthur’s music-making has harmonized with his diverse life experiences, making his beats real, raw, and relatable.

Arthur’s graceful groove is indie/folk/blues-infused, making his work timeless treats for his audience. Uniquely, he also enjoys creating electronic indie/alternative music that often conflicts with his easy-listening line-up but complements a deeper side of his soul.
Known for his positive vibes both on and off the stage, his carefree attitude is emulated in his tunes that transcend themes of love, hope, journey, struggle, relationships, and self-reflection. Sometimes, described as blissful bonfire music, Arthur’s music is a raw reflection of a life well-lived. He attributes his inspiration to traveling for over four years to almost every continent of the world and thriving on the meeting of minds in different places.
Drawing inspiration from his own life experiences as well as influences such as Shakey Graves, and Mat McHugh, he hopes that his music helps others to break free from their own barriers and be who they want to be.
When he is not writing music that seduces souls and steals hearts, he is probably making beautiful art videos, hiking mountains, or visiting volcanos.
His real guilty pleasure is surfing, which ignites his creative flow and ironically, keeps him ‘balanced’.
"Page of Wands" is the 3rd single from my upcoming album "Gypsy Tales". It is an indie folk track that explores the theme of finding one's true calling through the lens of the tarot card Page of Wands. The song features tribal guitars and string instruments, along with unique percussions that evoke the sounds of the wild and the bohemian culture. The lyrics delve deep into the symbolism of the tarot card, taking the listener on a mystical journey of self-discovery. With its ups and downs of emotions, this track is a musical experience that transports you to another time and place. Gypsy Tales will be a reflection of my life with short tales from my teenage years and later on when I used to play on Russian weddings and traveled around the world like a gypsy.
