The Underground Man is an American who loves accordion, blues and Tom Waits. He got his start at a bar in Kiev. He then brought his music to Tbilisi, where he eventually decided to start a band with the help of some of his close friends playing the underground bar circuit there. These days, he can be found rocking it out in Prague, both solo and with the Irish folk band Cupla Focal, and also on occasional appearances back in his adopted Sakartvelo (Georgia).
