The Russian Artist Factory

The Russian Artist Factory


Billy Joel meets Hawksley Workman in the ticket line for a whiskey convention hosted on a dance floor designed for lonely yet hopeful romantics where Blue Rodeo is opening for Elvis Costello.


When a Siberian winter sweeps in to take you away, you better be sure to have something warm and well constructed to keep yourself alive in....

...Enter The Russian Artist Factory, whose sole purpose on the planet is to leave you feeling musically warm and secure in the belief that pop music can be filled with honesty and humility and the artists themselves are appreciative and human.

Yet with the conviction of a Russian winter storm, these artists can blow your doors down with dance floor friendly, sing-along guitar pop...or perhaps you'll invite them inside where they can light up a room with a blend of piano pop stories romantically reminiscent of a time when things were soft and simple.

Since their arrival in Calgary in October 2005, The Russian Artist Factory has quickly garnered praise from every media outlet they have had the privilege of working with, from independent monthlies to nationally owned dailies.

With a rich and active international history, The Russian Artist Factory gives rise to some of the most melodic and sculpted pop music on the radio today.
