Stano (singer)

Stano (born Stanislav Stavicky on 25 November 1981 in Sochi, Russia) is a pop singer in Lithuania and the leader of music group Delfinai. He also wrote two novels, autobiographical Kiek kainuoja ilgesys (How Much Does Longing Cost, 2004), and Neįtikėtinos istorijos (Unbelievable Stories, 2008).

Stano was born to a Russian mother and a Lithuanian father. He came to Lithuania in 1992 to study at the Vilnius Secondary School "Lietuvių namai" (now known as Vilnius lietuvių namai), designed for students of Lithuanian heritage from foreign countries. Here he met Viačeslavas Saninas (DJ Sweetas, keyboard) and they established band called Delfinai (dolphins) in 2000. Their debut album Svajonės (Dreams) sold 11,000 copies in nine days and was certified gold. When preparing the album one song was lost due to a computer glitch, Stano created another song Viskas bus gerai (Everything is Going to Be Alright), which reached the peak spot at M-1 Top 40 chart. Delfinai received Bravo Awards as Debut of the Year. In 2003, DJ Sweetas left Delfinai to study and work in Russia. Even though Stano kept the band name, he in essence continued solo career. Along with Alanas Chošnau and SKAMP, Delfinai warmed up a free concert by The Black Eyed Peas in Vingis Park sponsored by mobile operator Tele2 on May 30, 2005.

In 2002, Stano came in second in Akvariumas-2, a celebrity reality show inspired by Big Brother. In 2005, Delfinai took second place in Nacionalinė muzikos lyga (NML), a reality competition by famous musicians. In 2009, Stano with Georgian singer Shorena Janiashvili won 3rd place in Žvaigždžių duetai, a reality competitions of musical duos.
