Ivan is a very talented Ukrainian artist. He experiments in different genres: pop, funk, hip-hop and electronic music. Once he had won the Russian audience, he switched to the West. His recently released “ODT” album got a prestigious EMA MTV award. His ambition is to conquer American charts, and I think he has a great chance of doing so.

Born in Russia on 17 October 1988, raised in Ukraine, Ivan Dorn is a true pop star for the modern age, an artist with a rather unique biography. At the age of 29 he went from mainstream pop singer to one of the most daring innovators in the Ukrainian and Russian music scene. Dorn brought a much needed freshness and novelty to post-soviet pop scene with his mixture of modern synth pop and IDM spiced with all kinds of worldly beats and rhythms.

Ivan Dorn’s Music Career

His debut album Co’N’Dorn (2012) included such singles as ‘Stycamen’, ‘Bigudi’. The latter received a nomination for the Muse-TV Awards 2013 in the category ‘Best Song’. And the hipster anthem ‘Solnechnoe siyanie’!

Dorn is one of the few Russian-speaking singers to be noticed by Western critics. The OTD album was recorded in the United States, where the musician brought new confident vibes, a completely different sound and the super-popular Collaba music video, which was released in 2017.

Stylish and unusual music video and music did not immediately fall in love with old fans of the artist, but it became clear – there is no way back. Ivan is changing – experiments have brought the musician to a completely new corner of reality, from which he boldly broadcasts all the best he saw.

In 2014, Dorn was a judge on the fifth season of X Factor Ukraine and In 2016, Dorn was a coach at The Voice Ukraine.
