Ivan Strelets (Иван Стрелец), better known as "Арчер", is a Russian blues-rock guitarist, harmonica player, singer and songwriter. "Blues is my soul; soul can't be sold. Music, as any other art, can only be given to the world". He made the free distribution of his recordings to be a main principle. "When nobody pays me money for my tracks, that gives me a freedom to do whatever I want with my music". He started to write songs in 1991 using acoustic guitar in a Russian bardic style. Sometimes he still plays old songs using his acoustic guitar, performing like a bard, for his close friends.
