Bring Prudence

Oleh moved to Illinois from Ukraine when he was 13. To cope with isolation, he wrote poems and recorded songs into his cell phone. By 16, he had saved up enough money from his Dunkin Donuts job to buy a guitar.

Bring Prudence sings about seduction, alienation, and loss of innocence. He employs a cast of characters and makes frequent allusions to theater, fortune-telling, and 90’s pop culture. His songs are autobiographical, supplemented by childhood lore, altered memories, and dreams taken to their most absurd conclusion. 

Bring Prudence is currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
