Privet Earth – FIAT USA Band Prix Winner
was a rock project founded by Ivan Smirnov in Los Angeles in 2007. Born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Ivan moved to the United States to pursue his dream of music. In 2013, after a great deal of struggle as a solo artist, he was joined by Megan Mullins (drums) and Mikael Oganes (keyboard), forming a fiery blitz-rock trio. The band’s musical style, which they have coined as blitz-rock, combines elements of classical, punk and electronic genres. Their explosive performances and vocal styles have helped them develop a loyal following of fans.
