Blansh; Sublime Music!
A kind of progressive rock (avant-garde, innovative).
For decades there has been no musician or group really following the great band's foot steps (Kiss, Ac/Dc, Van Halen, Rush, Queen, Scorpions, etc.).
Today, the band Blansh seems to be carrying that heritage.

This Band Rocks (Live)!
The Music is outstandingly well made.
The Vocal is amazingly surprising.
The Live stage Sound is beautiful (studio mix),
which is a feat in itself (hats off to the sound engineer).
The Live presentation is quite neat,
with lights (Fresnels, PARs, Floods), smoke screen (CO2),
background remarkably well utilized with special-effect clips.
The video live recording (and sound),
with 3 cameras (2 hand-held) is truely astounding.

Eyes and attention are immediately captured,
while the musical performance is enchanting the ears,
one finds it very hard to be distracted by anything!

Live Performances (2014)
I am presenting 4 pieces from their latest album "In Rough" (2012),
which I consider representative of the band (their acts),
in terms of music, show concept and delivery, and vocals.
However, any piece you pick is an experience in itself!

> Need Of Speed < (suitable for radio broadcast).

> Stay < (Rock music, singing range and versatility).

> Lost < (progressive rock based).

> Waltz < (Rock, elaborate music).


Live Performances (2015)

Hard rock band BLANSH Fontanka FM radio
Radio Interview (14 min. russian language) >Video<
English Texts Translated by: Tanyusha Kinaschuk
How not to speak hoarsely after such singing?
Just to take care about yourself! lol
What do you have to do? It's like you eat 10 eggs...
I am allergic to eggs! lol
Your voice sounds really cool. Let's listen to it again...
The interviewer asks Natalie
how she is lucky to be so quiet during her concerts?

Natalie tells that last time she was quiet while singing in public as she knew everything will be good, because her favourite sound producer was there. She says that she doesn't lip-synch a song. Also she says that it is very important to trust each other...

Anatoly and Natalie,
They both tell that they are thinking about recording their third album.
Anatoly says that his dream is to play in Hyde Park in London...
Natalie wants their music to become a product
that everyone can see and listen to,
on the radio for example...

©Blansh 2nd Drummer: Arkady Sokolov
The group Blansh plays with many instrumentalists and friends...


Natalie Rudman (Blansh; Vocals) singing is quite striking!
As much as the guys's music is innovative, Natalie sings precise notes on very particular lyric lines she wrote. And since she can rely on dedicated musicians (and instrumentalists), she has "carte-blanche" for expressing her own style and vocal cords abilities.
One natural-born singer!
With her exquisit and unique vocals, the band Blansh's music and delivery
creates a very interesting performance..

Short Bio: BLANSH

The group Blansh was founded in 1999
by Lead guitarist Anatoly Timofeev.

Drummer Andrey Vostokov quikly joined,
bringing solid musicals to the band with his many years experience.
The band's initial style was blues and rock (Blansh Blues-Rock),
playing cover versions (Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, BB King, and the likes).

Later on, the Bassman Nikita Litvinenko joined up,
Three instrumentalists (strings) came reinforce the musicals,
and Singer Natalie Rudman completed the line up
with her exquisit and unique vocals.

Since then, the band Blansh performed in many places in Sweden and Norway,
where they shared the stage with bands like "Sweet", Johan Kinde Group, etc.

It didn't take long for the group to write their own material.
Original rock compositions, sort of progressive rock, with touches of blues, jazz, and other styles. Some very interesting rock music which, according to members of the group,
has a rather unique "spirit" to it. They say Avant-Garde Rock (innovative).
