Sergey Chigrakov (Chizh), the founder and leader of the group and also a poet and composer was born in Dzerzhinsk on February the 6th, 1961. He began to play guitar since he was 6 and played in different local bands with his brother since he was 13. In his home town he finished Musical School and academy. Later, in Leningrad he graduated from the Leningrad State Conservatory and played accordion.

His real musical career started with the band from Kharkov called "Extra-curriculum Time" ("Gruppa Prodlennogo Dnya"). The leader of the band was Alexander Chernetsky. Chizh played accordion and keyboards there and was also a soloist and an author of the songs. But this band is known better under its second name, "Different People" ("Raznye Lyudi")

Unfortunately not everything was perfect in the band and after while, in 1993, Chizh left Kharkov and the band to St.-Petersburg. In Russian Northern Capital after surprisingly small time Chizh was adopted by monsters of Russian Rock and next year, in 1994 he recorded his first individual project called "Chizh". By that time, he didn't have his own band and the record was made with session musicians - B. Grebenshikov, Mikhail Chernov (DDT sax player), N. Korzinin. This album was like a catapult, which through him onto Olympus of Russian Rock Music, where Chizh had taken his own spot and feels fairly comfortable now. That was his first success. After that he created his own group, called "Chizh & Co" and records very good albums every year, getting better and better.

His songs are a some sort of mix of Folk and light Rock. Maybe not Rock, something else, but I can ensure you, it sounds great!

Speaking about text, I'd note that his texts are still very socially sharp and this band is one of the few ones that's not being attacked by the press and fans for its "mildness". His songs are ultimately patriotic.

The band travels a lot and gives many concert in different part of Russia on different stages, from small local stages to the "Luzhniki" stadium, where one of their albums, "Greatest Hits Live", was recorded.

The group doesn't have video clips except the one, that was made a short time ago on song "Polonaise" under direction of S. Kalvarsky.

All records were made by SoLyd Records. This studio is the owns the copyrights on all Chizh's production.
