Maruv’s real name is Anna Korsun. This Ukrainian pop singer became famous as part of the band, The Pringlez, which came in third in the national music competition, New Wave 2015. In 2018, Anna decided to pursue a solo career and adopted an unusual pseudonym, Maruv.
Korsun was born on 15 February 1992 in Pavlohrad, Ukraine. She spent her childhood there. Anna attended a regular school. She also enrolled in a music school to hone her vocal talents. When she was a teenager, the aspiring artist enjoyed dancing. She was part of the dance group, Lyk, which performed in several Ukrainian cities.
After school, Korsun moved to Kharkov. She was accepted into two universities. Even though it seemed to be a tough choice, the singer chose the one, which had a better after school amateur performance program. Kharkov Polytechnic Institute supported the students’ desire to develop their acting, singing, and dancing skills. Anna studied physics and electronics but spent her free time on the hobby, which was music.
In 2012, Anna decided to form a band called The Pringlez. The artists performed cover versions of many different hits in the pop-rock genre. Next year, the band won a local contest, Pepsi Stars of Now, and came in third on New Wave.
