About me

Born in Dubai on the 6th of September 1994, Ibrahim Vaskin (Ibby VK) had always been a big fan of music from a tender age. After graduating high school, he was led to study chemical engineering but never felt the same passion toward anything quite like music. Being raised in a multicultural family of Armenian / Syrian descent, has impacted his songwriting and molded it into a unique style.
Deciding to follow a career in music and set a footprint in the Dubai music scene by the time he graduates, Ibby set up a social media presence in all major platforms, releasing YouTube covers every week, and contacting many venues, performing free events and open mic nights with platforms such as The Green Room and GoPlayTheWorld until becoming somewhat established in the short time of 7 months, amassing a following bigger than most UAE artists including some signed acts. Ibby is also the first and most performing artist with the Green Room, taking part in all their events up to date.
Ibby has done many shows since he has started performing professionally, armed with only a guitar, a dream of being an international success, and the will to work hard in order to achieve nothing less, which led him to perform songs he had been writing since he was 16 and up to date, garnering the attention of any observing crowd member, including some high profile figures. These songs and covers are performed at most of his events (of approximately 50 gigs in less than 7 months) which he attributes to his professional demeanor, and has aided him in performances such as:

• AUS Global Days 14/15/17 (Crowds between 500 - 1000+)
• AUS Graduation Ceremonies (2015 – 2017)
• Middle East Film & Comic Con 2017 (MEFCC17)
• Model United Nations (approx. 600 attendees)
• Sheraa’ inaugural day (Attended by HH. Sheikh Sultan Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, and his daughter HE Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi)
• Food Festivals, High profile poetry events, charity events, and more…

Currently, Ibby is finishing up his debut acoustic EP due to release after Ramadan 2017, followed by another EP with an EDM producer, which will bring a whole other vibe and open the door to various genres for the artist, due to release before Christmas 2017.

***Usually performs solo by just singing with a guitar and a loop pedal (like ed sheeran) but for bigger event, or upon request, can have a band with guitarists, pianist, saxophonist, bassist, dancers, etc...
