Alena Vinnitskaya is the firstUkrainian alternative popular style artist. Alena is the author and the performer of her own music and lyrics. During three years of her carrier as the solo artist she has released 2 albums Sunrise and 007. Her third album with preliminary name Dolls is going to be released on the 23rd of April 2006.
Alena has started to write songs in the childhood and was sending them in the newspaper Pionerskaya Pravda. Some time later Alena has become a fan of the band Kino and thanks to this has started to play the guitar.
In 1993 Alena is creating her first group The Last Unicorn, where she appears as the author of her music and lyrics. The first concerts are taking place in Kyiv Central Hospital. Unfortunately, the first attempt to become an artist collapsed: not enough information and badly developed Ukrainian business forced the group to stop their activity.
During these few years Alena is working as the insurance agent, but is always thinking about the creation of her own band. In 1996 Alena is giving up her work in the insurance company in hope of self-actualization. The long searches of her own way have been started. Alena has been playing in the Theater of the Ecology Institute, in Psychological Theatre etc.
Me together with my brother decided to go and to try ourselves. We have prepared our programs. I was singing aria of Maria Magdalena from Jesus Christ Superstar. So we've entered. I was taken to the theatre troupe though I wanted to enter the popular troupe. But I do not regret about it because I have discovered myself as the actress.
