KonstantinAS (London, UK)

Before moving to his current home in Cyprus, the artist spent several years developing his sound in London. However, it was at the tender age of two in his home town of Almaty - a Central Asian outpost of the Soviet Union which is today in Kazakhstan - that KonstantinAS discovered the guitar. His father was a bassist and kept a guitar near KonstantinAS’ nursery. Fascinated by the mysterious object, he would reach out and run his fingers up and down the strings. As a teenager he received a Fender Stratocaster from his parents and lessons from a family friend named Alexander. His father and Alexander introduced him to quintessential classic rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Nazareth.
