ExNN ? Ex Nihilo Nihil (fit), and ancient Latin proverb, meaning that nothing comes out of nothing.

Three guys and a girl met occasionally, started experimental work playing in a band and remained together for a long time. Who told that there?s nothing more constant than temporary??? Gala (vocals), Balint (guitar), Botzman (bass), and John(drums) seemed to be so very different from each other ? a linguist, two engineers and a bachelor)) together is a rather strange company.

One should die laughing when he knows the story of Balint music school. Can you imagine a sixteen-year old fellow sitting at the desktop with kids studying solfeggio? He did it! However, let's get back to the bio...

It was much fun to watch as the band played with female vocals trying desperately to find male one. Gala was sure that not a man could replace her in ExNN. So it was, however the first record brought some misunderstandings and realization that something was lacking. Gala knew from her very childhood her life would be music. Once being a ten years old child she came to her aunt with a cassette tape-recorder and sang Michael Jackson's songs. She desperately wished her aunt to become her producer. It's natural that a ten-year old child wouldn?t be able to understand it was impossible. The whole family had laughed and forgotten the incident. However a decade later Gala's family got really annoyed - the girl was kin on music and it was likely she would give up a linguist career to play music.

Started as a hobby, music led the guys to serious aiming. In the meantime ExNN began going to neighbouring towns for gigs; eventually the band became popular in Moldova. By the year 2005 ExNN started working on the first album. There was enough stuff, but the guys lacked experience and money. It was the high time for them to meet the producers, who where ready to compensate lack of money and experience. ExNN was ready to create and work, some songs were born in Russian and some of them in English. Bilingual nature of lyrics for good reason made the guys to think over the English version of the album; soon they started. Internet nowadays gives a splendid opportunity to promote bands? stuff, so ExNN used this moment and got several feedbacks on the action. First of all the song ?Inside? entered the top 10 on www.broadjam.com site, so as some other songs like ?Money? , ?Shaman?, and some others; secondly, by the end of 2006 ExNN got stunning news about becoming the Best Band of the Year at www.musicaid.org In the years of 2005-2006 ExNN had also participated in the biggest music events of Moldova (Stary Melnik Festival 2004,2005,2006) and Russia (Emmaus 2006); the band also visits the neighbouring Ukraine with the concerts.

Right now the band is working hard on new stuff for the second album.
