Day in and day out, bands from all around are striving for the music industry to take notice of them. Not every day does a band come along that has the professionalism and determination like no other. Female fronted hard rock/pop trio, VARNA is that band.

Day in and day out, bands from all around are striving for the music industry to take notice of them. Not every day does a band come along that has the professionalism and determination like no other. Female fronted hard rock/pop trio, VARNA is that band.

Formed in Los Angeles in early 2010 as Living Eulogy, band members consist of Tiana Woods (vocals), Rossen Pinkas (guitar) and Rob Shin (drums). With a variety of influences from Mariah Carey to Slayer, they came together after Rossen (an electrician by day) met Tiana while installing a fan in her apartment. Rob joined the line-up after answering an ad at Musician's Institute.

Their band name was taken from the street that their rehearsal studio was located on. They would take refuge there after working full time at their mundane day jobs. "VARNA symbolizes to us, the place and time where you get to live out your dreams.”

In late 2012, they began recording their debut release, ‘This Time, It’s Personal’ EP with rock producer Erik Ron (Panic at the Disco, Saosin, I the Mighty) including songs “Down”, “My Heart” and “Running Away". A mix of commercial pop vocals accompanied by hard rock guitars, their songs emotional lyrics deal with the ups and downs of life, making sure that the end result is always uplifting. Within 2 weeks of releasing their first single, 'Down' in 2013, VARNA had been added to Internet radio stations all across the US and the UK, charting in the company of major artists including Linkin Park and Three Days Grace.

VARNA are a 100% “do-it yourself” independent band who are known for their close relationship with their fanbase. "Our fans are everything to us." says Tiana, "We treat our fans like they are the ROCKSTARS."

They received international acclaim through press reviews and interviews reaching countries such as England, Ireland, Bulgaria, Australia, Latin America and The Philippines as well as state side. After a successful residency at The Good Hurt, their energetic live shows have brought them to various iconic LA venues which include The Viper Room and House of Blues.

2014 proved to be an even bigger year for Varna. With their debut video for 'My Heart' premiering on RevolverMag.com, a 'Success Story' from Musician's Institute, a clean sweep feature on Los Angeles' KLOS FM 'Stay or Go' with Heidi & Frank plus multiple media press, it lead to a sponsorship deal with ColdCock Whiskey and their loyal fan base (#VARNFAMILY) securing a spot for them on 2014's VANS Warped Tour.

With the departure of guitarist Rossen Pinkas in 2014 and the addition of Eddie Haddad in 2015, they are in the studio gearing up for their second release in 2015 with Erik Ron once again.

Determined on making a name for themselves by taking on as many opportunities that come their way, with passion and a plan, they will exceed past the borders of their home town.

VARNA is set to be their legacy.
