Nash is a singer-songwriter and musician from Tbilisi, Georgia, a country with a rich musical tradition, and birthplace of several other successful acts including Katie Melua. Currently living in Moscow, Nash started playing music behind the iron curtain in the underground scene, influenced by smuggled-in rock & roll records. At his first opportunity he left the (then still) USSR and moved to America where he honed his musical skills playing in various bands whilst working menial jobs.
When Nash returned to Moscow in 1995 he found things had changed drastically. Music, art – the city was experiencing a cultural explosion. With the regulations of the past now lifted, Nash found it to be the perfect environment to play music and form a new band. That band was Blast Unit Moscow, one of the brightest, most successful, unique alternative bands of the Russian rock-n-roll scene. In 2013 they released their final album ‘Krisis Of Genre’, produced and co-written by Youth (The Verve, Beth Orton). The recent Noel Gallagher single ‘Balad Of The Mighty I’ definitely gives more than a little nod to ‘Eclectic Man’ from the album.
In early 2014 Nash took the decision to concentrate on his solo career. Unrestrained by the need to write for the band, Nash’s solo material is more personal and intimate than ever before, with a simpler, more acoustic feel than the post-industrial punk style of his previous band, while still keeping the modern retro rock & roll flavour.
