Hi there and Welcome to my Realm! I'm Apolinara an independent musician creating Symphonic Gothic Metal with mystical twist.

Ukraine raised and the USA based, I became a professionally trained singer, piano player and songwriter. I've seen different countries, traveled and lived on 4 continents, driving all these international influences into my music and lyrics.

As a Warrior of Light, I proclaim a manifest of inspiration and endless fight with inner demons. I want to move the listener through atmospheric, melodic themes, raising the tone with heavy riffs, symphonic arrangements, and meaningful lyrics.
I am  here to light up the Path where music evokes magic!

On February 22, 2022 Apolinara presented a debut album - “Shadows and Signs” produced by Max Morton (Jinjer, Ignea, Bare Infinity, Morton, Nimea etc.)
All lyrics, music, arrangements, lead and back vocals are made by me -  

Current session musicians’ line-up: Alexander Kasiarum (drums), Vyacheslav Khabarov (lead, rhythm and bass guitars), Tatyana Krasavina (cello), Julia Polishchuk (violin) and Fabian Morales (growls). It’s important to mention a special collaboration for “Slowly” (acoustic version) with a unique glass harpist Brien Engel.
