Ekat's appreciation for music began with her birth in St. Petersburg, Russia. With her parents being working musicians, Ekat grew up listening to the legends such as the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Queen, Eagles, ZZ Top, Adriano Celentano, and many more. At the age of 7, Ekat was accepted to one of St. Petersburg's schools of music and began her classical piano training. 

The proud wife and mom of two amazing children, Ekat's love for performing live began after joining the local theater in 2007. Since then, Ekat has opened for Bad Company and The Outlaws with Billy Spanton Band and she is currently active in several projects of various music genres, including rock, pop, blues, and jazz.

Ekat is truly excited to be part of Twelve Twenty-Four. “I am blessed to be part of this super talented group. They inspire me to grow as a musician. Combining the magical season of Christmas with amazing sounds of music makes for an unforgettable experience and I am truly honored to be a part of it!”
