Mendeleyev is an inspiring singer and songwriter born and raised in the Santa Barbara mountains. Appearing on Season 17 of The Voice on John Legend’s Team, Mendeleyev’s low booming voice inspired all four coaches to turn their chairs. His signature sound and remarkable musical abilities led him to be chosen as Ben Harper's opening act for his next North American tour. With a diverse catalogue of fervent finger picking, mellow to manic melodies and lyrical content, he is highly influenced by a variety of classic legends such as Richie Havens, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan, as well as more modern artists like Jeff Buckley and John Mayer. With a fresh, folky yet funky take on music and memorable performance style, there’s no telling where he’ll be heading next, but we guarantee you’ll want to be along for the ride.
