I'm a singer/songwriter/producer/performer looking to grow my business and meet likeminded entrepreneurs.
Tatevik Sarkisyan is an accomplished singer/songwriter/producer and performer who has sang in several languages. Additionally she is a Russian to English Translator. She is fluent in English, Russian, Armenian, speaks and reads a little French and is currently studying Italian.Tatevik Sarkisyan was born to Armenian parents in Moscow. She began her musical journey at the age of 6 as a choir lead and piano performer at school concerts. She came to Canada at the age of 16 and became known in the Montreal local community for performing a classical repertoire in 8 languages. At 19 she developed a passion for song-writing and presented to a small audience her first musical composition "Time". The singer/songwriter/producer now has more than 160 written songs behind her in a variety of styles. Tatevik has received great reviews for her work including praise from tenor and McGill voice coach Franco Tenelli who says: "One of Tateviks greatest gifts is a beautiful voice that can be used in almost any style of music including classical and pop. In addition she is also a composer and excellent songwriter. This versatility is a unique gift itself and ensures us we have a real talent."At 24 Tatevik moved to Toronto and took on the artist name "Drellander" which sounds like "dreamlander". In 2004 Tatevik collaborated with writer/film director Robert Wilson on a short film A Dying Fall that aired on CBC in July 2006 and won first place at WorldFest Houston. Tateviks multiple credits for this film include art direction, craft services, make-up and wardrobe, contract management as well as playing a small part in the movie. Tatevik worked with Robert at Tamerlane Productions until 2009.In 2011 she recorded her song Oasis with indie music producer and Indie Week judge Dave Thomson of Digital Underdog Productions and released it on iTunes and Amazon via CD Baby. She also produced a music video for the song (directed and edited by Robert Wilson) that is now available on YouTube. Tatevik launched Drellander Productions in 2012 and is currently looking for funding for her album. She secured a non-exclusive worldwide publishing deal for her songs with the Canadian publisher Jan Cooper Publishing after Jan Cooper represented her at Midem 2012 in Cannes. In the same year she had a performance at the prestigious Mod Club in Toronto organized by Landmark Media. Her song Oasis was promoted with a 2 week radio blast in Canada and US by Avala DSF (currently under Five2Eight umbrella). In February 2013 she was approached and signed with A & R Select to promote her music on radio, in magazines,TV shows, films and commercials in the US. The week of Aug 12, 2013 "Oasis" had spins on CBC Radio, one of Canada's largest radio stations with national coverage. It played on the CBC Radio programs "Mainstreet" (P.E.I.) and "The Bridge" (Windsor, Ontario). Oasis is the first single from her much anticipated debut album. As A & R Select says in their press release: " Oasis is a metaphor for finding true love. Its message is inspiring, hopeful and creates a deep connection due to its relatable subject matter. This single has an arrangement of that of a movie soundtrack. It incorporates the depth of her skills, the passion of her writing, the beauty of her voice and has a mesmerizing effect on anyone who has the privilege to experience her music."In addition to being trained in music and having collaborated with some of the greatest classical voice/piano/composition teachers and performers such as Tamara Goulina (U of T), Eduardo del Campo (McGill, San Francisco Opera), Franco Tenelli (McGill, Metropolitan Opera), Vania Angelova (Universite de Mtl), Alexandre Solopov (McGill) and Nina Larionova Shishlova (Bolshoi Theatre), Tatevik has also studied science at McGill University and is a graduate of Touro College business school. Tatevik is currently working on a few projects. Recently she wrote the lyrics for R & B and rap singer/sound engineer/producer/international artist Edward Sarkisov for his duet with Mario Winance "Never Let You Go", the track produced by Timberland. The song is gaining worldwide popularity on iTunes. Drellander will be recording a dance single with Sarkisov called "A new beginning" for which she wrote music and lyrics. She also co-wrote a ballad with a Grammy-winning, Juno-winning, billboard charting producer/sound engineer Sean Michael Paddison called "I love you anyway" that is to be recorded and released this summer.
