In Dec 2014 Dee Kourtsman released solo album called “Islands by bicycle” and now proudly presents its live version!
Dee Kourtsman started as a singer, guitarist and mandolin player in a Russian folk-rock band The Dartz. His current set includes songs and instrumental guitar pieces almost entirely written in Finland. Dee created most of the music sitting on the balcony in Espoo looking at the trees, the clouds and the sky, or riding a bicycle on his way to Helsinki, just like Tchaikovsky who used to compose walking in the fields. Dee’s music is partly Celtic, partly Russian, partly a meditation of the city located by the northern sea.

Dee Kourtsman on folk-kitaristi, laulaja ja lauluntekijä, alkujaan venäläinen mutta nykyisin hän elää Suomessa. Hän aloitti laulajana, kitaristina ja mandoliinin soittajana venäläisessä folk-rock bändissä The Dartz. Hänen nykyinen keikka-settinsä koostuu pääosin Suomessa tehdyistä lauluista ja instrumentaalisista kitara-osuuksista, ja suurimman osan näistä hän on tehnyt pyöräillessään Helsinkiin, tai istuen parvekkeella Espoossa katsellen puita, pilviä ja taivasta – aivan kuten Tchaikovsky, joka sävelsi kävellessänsä pelloilla. Deen musiikki on osin kelttiläistä, osin venäläistä, osin myös meditaatio kaupungista pohjoisen meren äärellä.
