Russian singer, songwriter and guitar player extraordinaire Arsen Shomakhov is an electric blues performer who is truly dedicated to the style's roots yet who never hesitates to borrow means of expression from other genres.

In 2005, Arsen Shomakhov travelled from his native Russia to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge. Two years later, he won the new talent contest at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas.

He soon relocated to Vancouver, where he formed the Arsen Shomakhov Trio. He was nominated for a Maple Blues Award for his 2010 album "On the Move" which reached number 1 in Canada on the Roots Music Report airplay charts and hit Top 25 Blues Albums of the Year worldwide.

Working hard to make a name for himself and his trio, Arsen has performed for a variety of festivals across the Europe, United States and Canada including the King Biscuit Blues Festival, the Waterfront Blues Festival and the Montreal International Blues Festival.
