Vladimir Zhdamirov and the group "Butyrka"
Vladimir Zhdamirov was born on August 6, 1958. in the Voronezh region. The biography of the chanson performer is rich in various kinds of events. His parents are engaged in art, and the brother reached significant heights in dancing.
Childhood and youth of Vladimir proceeded ratherroughly. Hooliganism, and drives to the police took place in his life. Already in his childhood years, our hero began to sing, performed at the school at various concerts. He was the vocalist of the group "Far Light" in 1998-1999.
The group "Butyrka" in the life of Vladimir Zhdamirov
Since 1999, in the work of the group "Far Light"began a simple one, which lasted for three years. It happened, as the participants say, "for family reasons." At this time, Vladimir Zhdamirov and Oleg Simonov (the second author in the group) leave and begin to "break out into people" together. Oleg wrote poetry and music, and Vladimir Zhdamirov devoted himself to vocals. An important moment in the biography of Vladimir was a meeting with the future producer of Butyrki Alexander Abramov. In the distant 2001, unknown performers Vladimir Zhdamirov and Oleg Simonov turned to the recording studio "Russian chanson" with a request to record their first songs. Then they were noticed by Abramov. At that time, the names of the group were not yet there. Once they heard about how several prisoners escaped from the well-known insulator "Butyrka". Abramov suggested giving the group such a name and it caught on. The first concert of the band took place in 2001. In the following, in 2002, the first album of the band "Butyrka" was released, and the guys became one of the most popular chanson performers. The songs of the group are true, sincere, coming from the heart. They sing about simple life and simple people, without glamor shine, so they leave very few indifferent. After the release of the second album, the group was awarded the "Discovery of the Year" award and the "Best Russian Chanson" award.

The departure of Vladimir Zhdamirov from Butyrki
Why did Vladimir Zhdamirov leave the Butyrka group? A unequivocal answer to this question is difficult to give. There is an opinion that the conflict between Vladimir and Oleg Simonov has ripened. Someone says that Zhdamirov wanted more fame and money for his work. These participants do not confirm these rumors, but they also do not refute them. In this regard, we can not fail to mention the scandal in the city of Minsk. Before Vladimir announced his departure from the group, a concert was planned there. The staff of Butyrki was ready to conduct a concert without Vladimir (with a new vocalist) and compensate those who bought tickets for this concert. But upon arrival, the artists simply were not allowed into the hall, and instead of the group in the hall Vladimir Zhdamirov performed with a solo concert, performing hits that did not belong to him.
