Igor Presnyakov was Born in Moscow, Russia. He studied classical guitar at a nearby and eventually graduated both as a guitarist and a conductor for ensembles.
In the late ’70s he used to lead several hard-rock bands as a lead guitarist, vocalist and arranger. On that time he also played guitar in a
big-band for several years. In 1991 he relocated to the Netherlands to start his solo career, which has now spanned over 20 years.
Since he moved to Europe he started discovering fingerpicking and eventually created his unique acoustic guitar-style which is influenced by various musical genres. Igor is a contemporary guitar player, who arranges and composes in an orchestral way; combining percussion, bass, harmony and melody at the same time. His arrangements of popular songs bring a very interesting
approach to the original compositions, giving them a totally new perspective and possibilities of the acoustic guitar.
