Sergey was born in Daugavpils city in 1988. He grew up in the family of a historian, regional ethnographer, teacher of Russian literature and language, his grandfather, Gusev Bronislav Gavrilovich, who instilled fondness for accordion playing, music, poems, culture and art in general, also he influenced much his formation as a person in other life aspects. Continued to study the mastery of performance in Daugavpils Secondary School No. 13 - which is known as a school with musical emphasis. A few years before school’s graduation, he began simultaneously studying in Daugavpils Music College under the direction of maestro - Valery Hodukin. Finally, he graduated from the Music College with a degree in academic singing.
Sergey dedicated his life to music and continues to be engaged in mastering the creative craft: an accordion play, singing and composing. Poetry occupies highly significant place in this person’s life and together with songs’ lyrics are viewed as independent directions of creativity.
However despite the various genres’ abundance and influence, musical creativity can still be defined as contemporary, acoustic romance, accordion bard with serious lyrics and easy listening instrumental music with variative, flying melodies, suggesting a more creative character and performing format. But anyway, in foundation of his own genue style of sounding, the accordion remains as master’s main instrument. The musician's activity evolving around different directions, but the main ones are - author's song, instrumental music and arrangements, poetry, satire-humorous verse and publicism.
Composer’s solo career has found the continuation in “SIN MUSIC” - this’s the creative workshop of Sergey Ivanov that includes creation itself, all main directions in general, development and promotion, this is a union of creative people; and “Nota Artista” - this is not only the one of performing activities, but authors special concert program too, that combines under the one name certain cycle of authors poems, monologs, songs and music. In particular, the charming accordion player has been using such name in order to perform and appeal to listeners and people.
