Dee Kourtsman is a Russian indie folk guitarist, singer and a songwriter. He performs as solo artist and as leader of famous Russian folk-rock band The Dartz. Dee’s music is one third Celtic, one third Russian, one third a meditation of the city located by the northern sea. Dee himself calls this style “Baltic trans”, and always refers to pieces as to songs, each one with a story and dramatis personae. Dee's performances are best described by the listeners: "Every time it's a wonder how Dee manages to visualize far lands, distant beacons and desert mirages, inconsolable loneliness of the city and the guiding lights of joy – without even putting it into words."
