I feel I'm a talented musician, humbly said. But Taras is in another realm of musicianship. Vocals, drums, and keys...he's a master at all. Such soul, so on the mark, so much creativity. I'm deeply grateful to have found him. He had no reviews. Now he has one. Hey, hire this man! And, yes, he's in Ukraine and as of this writing, his studio is full scale running, thankfully. This man deserves it.
