The early years, childhood and the family of Vladimir Kristovsky
Since childhood, Volodya had a good voice and loved to sing. The boy raised his love for music with his father - Evgeny Visvaldovich, an amateur musician. Volodya always dreamed of becoming an artist.
As a teenager, the boy’s voice began to break, and for some time Vladimir didn’t sing at all. But the desire to be an artist did not leave him. For Volodya, an example was always the elder brother Sergey, who, as a young man, performed with his group and was successful. The brothers had an age difference of five years, and Vladimir tried to imitate Sergey in everything. He was very worried when his older brother beat him in various sports games.
Vladimir really did not like to study, and he was very reluctant to attend school. He liked writing poetry and picking music for them. But compared to Sergey’s songs, his poems seemed awkward, incomprehensible, “not like that.” ...
However, the younger Kristovsky used to get his way. At first, his older brother helped him with lyrics. Over time, Vladimir felt that he could not only write music, but also compose words on a melody.
The most memorable for Vladimir during this period were wonderful evenings, when Sergey brought his many friends home, and they sang their songs until late.
The first wife is Valeria Kristovskaya (Roman). Four children (all girls): Yasmin, Stanislava, Miya, Uma. In 2013, Vladimir left his wife and married a second time. His chosen one - Olga Pilevskaya (Kristovskaya), a tableware designer and an employee of Vladimir’s PR team, is engaged in social networks. From his second wife, son Fedor, was born on November 4, 2016.
The beginning of the career of musician Vladimir Kristovsky
Volodya gathered a group of guys who performed his songs, and gave her the name "Top View". Vladimir brought the first demo of his songs to Moscow in 1998. However, the music was of a punk character, and not everyone perceived it the way the musician would like it to be.
Vladimir distributed the cassettes with his songs to all existing recording studios. The guy's expectations did not materialize. According to the conclusion of professionals from the Gala Records record company, what the guy wrote, speaking in informal vocabulary, was "completely sucks."
But this did not stop Vladimir. And after a while he recorded another tape with the new three songs. It was with these songs that Vladimir became the winner of the Live Sound contest, which was conducted by one of the famous newspapers.
Immediately after winning the contest, an article was published about the musician with the publication of his photograph. Vladimir was given the opportunity to record and publish an album in the capital's studio. But this time the hopes of the musician were not destined to come true. The country defaulted, which destroyed all plans.
The path of Vladimir Kristovsky to fame
Songs written in Nizhny Novgorod, Vladimir brought to Moscow and tried to sell them. Among potential buyers there was also a little-known Tatu group. Nizhny Novgorod songs could be sung by Julia Volkova and Lena Katina. But, tape recordings of songs with a guitar were not in demand, and Vladimir had to return to his native Nizhny Novgorod with nothing.
In his hometown, Vladimir got a job at the Carambol club, where he sang his songs and accompanied himself to the guitar. The first fee he received by writing a national anthem for the restaurant was $ 300.
Kristovsky tried to assemble his own group, but the idea failed. Then brother Sergey came to the rescue, who already had a certain experience and enjoyed success. Senior Kristovsky invited Vladimir to speak together. They united in one group. The first performance that the audience saw took place in Moscow on the birthday of Vladimir, in December 2003.

The first attempt to advance in Moscow, undertaken by Vladimir in 1998, was unsuccessful - all the recording studios in which Kristovsky took the cassettes with his songs called the guy’s work “suck”. Then Volodya performed compositions in the Nizhny Novgorod club “Cannon” and won the contest “Live Sound”.

Life experience of Vladimir Kristovsky
After school, Vladimir received the specialty of electrician. After some time, he became a student of a gas electric welder. Later I decided to master the hairdressing art, but he did not have the patience to work in this specialty. So all these professions remained unclaimed by Vladimir.
Where Kristovsky Jr. didn’t work: a night watchman in a morgue, an operator at a gas station, a driver in the Ministry of Finance. He managed to visit the role of an agent selling chocolate and lemonade, worked as a courier, a seller of household appliances, and even worked as a deputy director in one of the design companies. Going through one profession after another, Vladimir realized that his life’s business was music.
The wife was then the first and only. Faithful and wise Valeria married Vladimir at the age of 18. She supported her beloved throughout her life together. She whispered affectionate words, called talented, followed him wherever he went. Together with him, when luck turned to face Vladimir, Valeria moved to the capital. He was with him for 17 long years.
During this time, four charming girls were born to the spouses, inheriting their parental cheerful disposition and easy character. Vladimir and Lera gave them unusual names: Yasmina, Mia, Stanislav and, of course, Uma. Photos of the merry four from time to time fall into the press, including in scandalous materials.
In particular, one of the first notes that upset the singer’s fans was the news of the divorce of Lera and Vladimir, who were so suitable for each other. That was in 2013. Both spouses gave interviews to the press, each saying that divorce after 17 years of a happy marriage is an extremely sad event.
Everyone knew that Kristovsky had a muse - Olga Pilevskaya. However, even taking into account the new relationship, Vladimir was difficult to part with Valeria. He said that feelings did not go away, they simply grew out of love into a strong friendship. He was convinced that even after the divorce, the spouses would remain loyal buddies, but still for rehabilitation after a difficult decision he left for Germany, where he received psychological help.
No less worried and Valeria. It didn’t fit her head at all that such a loving and sincere man as her husband, after almost two decades of marriage, after four of the most beautiful and kind gifts in the world - charming daughters - could go to another woman. She experienced this shock for a long time.
Between the two lights was Olga Pilevskaya. The feelings that flared up between her and the married man were hard to restrain. Love is different. The girl, as she could, supported her beloved and tried to establish relations with the delightful four Volodya daughters.
After some time, Kristovsky married his muse, but nothing was heard about Valeria's personal life for a long time. However, two years later it turned out that she did not live as a recluse: on the social networks of Vladimir's ex-wife, happy photos of Lera with a stranger and children appeared at the registry office.
Despite the outfit - both adults had jeans and shirts, it was clear who the bride was here. Valeria got married for the second time, however, despite the strong friendship promised by Kristovsky, she did not invite him to the wedding. Only the daughters of Kristovsky enjoyed the ceremony with their own eyes.
After both established a personal life, the couple really began to maintain relationships - after all, they have four wonderful children with whom dad often and with pleasure spends time. And in 2016, Kristovsky first became the boy’s dad. In a marriage with Olga, his son Fedor was born. “Now I have a whole hockey five,” the happy dad in social networks grabbed.
The Umaturman group, whose corporate style, according to the Kristovsky brothers, is “pop with elements of bard song and rock”, appeared in mid-2003, and the next year she performed at the opening of the Moscow film festival and received the Russian MTV award.
Listeners liked the combination of pleasant music and ironic texts - the author of both components of success is Vladimir Kristovsky. The role of Sergey Kristovsky is to create high-quality arrangements, play the bass guitar and some percussion instruments. Vocals are performed by both brothers.
Praskovya Girl from Moscow Region became the same meme as 20 years earlier the Stewardess named Jeanne. In addition to the “girl near Moscow”, Kristovsky was praised for the songs “Say Goodbye” and “Tennis Big,” and the music for the films “Night Watch” and “Daddy's Daughters”.
