About the ArtistDuring a time of heavy communism, lack of Religious freedom and suppression, Mariya (sounds like Maria) Mikhailovna Pivovarevich made her way into this world. Born in 1984 in Pinks Belarus, Nina and Mikhail welcomed their fifth child.
In a chaotic world with controlling government and little freedom physical labor was part of everyday life from sunrise to sundown. The family's survival consumed their every waking hour, and that left little if any time for a hobby or artistic expression. But despite her circumstances a young talent was being born.
It was a diving miracle when the Pivovarevich family had an opportunity to flee to another country, America, to start life again. They soon found themselves in the small town of Clarkston, Washington with only a few bags to their name.
Despite new struggles there was something that brought life into Mariya's young soul and that was the power of music. The ability to sing a song, her song.
The family was sponsored by First Assembly of God in Clarkston, WA, and Mariya wasted no time singing in church whenever the opportunity arose, honoring her skills as a vocalist. At the age of twelve, she entered a local fine arts competition in Seattle, WA in 1997. Her talent was apparent, as she tied with two twenty year-old competitors and was invited to the National Competition being held in Indiana that year. Unfortunately the financial burden the trip would place upon the Pivovarevich family would prove to be too much and Mariya was unable to attend.
In 1999 her journey led her to Asheville, N.C for her sisters’ wedding where she met her husband, Sergio Fesiuk. It wasn’t long before the Ukrainian-born Composer found that he shared more than just a love for music with Mariya. They married in 2005. Soon the two combined their gift and talents and released their debut Album ‘So Beautiful’ in 2006. With songs in two languages, Russian and English they traveled the United States and took her music abroad to Ukraine, performing in various venues and churches. The opportunity allowed Mariya to develop her skills as an artist, performer and writer.
In June 2008 Noah Dominic Fesiuk was born. The excited birth of their first child paused their musical journey however, it didn’t stop it. For the past two years Mariya’s writing has improved and expanded.
After much work and the anticipation is building for Mariya’s debut album, “BEAUTIFUL STRANGER" comes out FALL of 2010. This album is not only the music and voice of Mariya Fesiuk but the soul and heartbeat of a woman who fought battles, moved countries, fallen in love, experienced hardship, joy and peace.
When I write, I don’t want to write just another song. I like to write about life and experiences." -Mariya Fesiuk
And so she does.
