Roman Miroshnichenko was born in 1977, and his first musical experience was on drums.

Formerly, Roman played in a duo with ‘Godfather of fusion’ Larry Coryell, who has impressed on Roman’s playing: “It is a wondrous aspect of the modern guitar evolution that a young Russian could faithfully embrace the Spanish/Gypsy culture with such accuracy.”
In 2013 Hal Leonard Books released “The Great Jazz Guitarists” encyclopedia by Scott Yanow, the most comprehensive guide to jazz guitarists ever published (from Django Reinhardt to Les Paul, Jeff Beck and beyond) with information about Roman Miroshnichenko.
“When one listens to the powerful guitar playing of Roman Miroschnichenko, it is easy to be reminded of Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin during his Mahavishnu days, but it soon becomes apparent that Miroschnichenko has his own sound within fusion, setting the standard for XXI century fusion guitar.” - Scott Yanow noted.
