Vlad Kurasov was born on March 13, 1995 in the city of Brest (Byelorussia). At the age of 6 he enrolled in the art school of Staronizhesteblievskaia stanitsa in Kuban.

In 2006 the Kurasovs family moved to Krasnodar (Russia). Vladislav enrolled in the Interschool Aesthetic Center (IAC) to study variety vocal singing and pianoforte, and also in Creative Union "Première" (Theatre), and graduated his studies at these institutions in 2011 with honors. 

In 2007 Vladislav took part in "The Minute of Fame" show on the Russian TV-Channel "The First Channel" performing Elvis Presley’s song "Blue suede shoes" which got high scores from the jury.

Vlad learned about the Ukrainian show "Х-Factor" from the Internet after watching a television clip with a performance of one of the contestants of the project’s first season. After that Vladislav started to monitor the developments of "Х-Factor" and when he read that the second season casting was announced he made up his mind and went to Donetsk at once to have a try. 

On August 27, 2011 the CTV-Channel broadcast a program about the TV-casting for "Х-Factor" in Donetsk where Vlad performed Celine Dion’s song "My Heart Will Go On". The audience rose in applause and all four judges said "Yes" to Vlad.

On October 22, 2011 "Х-Factor" had its first live broadcast during which Vlad brilliantly performed Leonard Cohen’s song «Hallelujah» which eventually became the "visiting card" of the young performer. 

Vlad took part in all of ten "Х-Factor" broadcasts and took the third place by results of viewers voting. In the finale of the project he performed «I`m walking away» in a duet with the British star Craig David.

On March 6, 2012 the Ukrainian CTV-Channel launched the show "Star Ring" which was a contest of finalists of two "Х-Factor" seasons and vocalists of "Ukraine’s Got Talent". Vladislav Kurasov was one of the contestants of that new project.

During the live broadcast of "Star Ring" on April 10, 2012, which the Channel’s management decided to make the last broadcast, the viewers had to select the winner of that project.

Vladislav performed his "visiting card" - «Hallelujah» song, trying to impart new feelings to it. Vlad’s performance did not left the audience untouched and according to results of viewers’ voting he became the winner of the show and was awarded the money prize in the amount of UAH 500,000 to shoot a clip and record a song.

On June 22, 2012 there was the first performance of the song «Farewell, My City» with the lyrics and music written by Vlad. Later on, he presented another song written by him titled "Love Zero Squared".

On December 2, 2012 by winning the first place with his song «Farewell, My City» in «I am the Talent» contest, Vladislav received a chance to perform in front of the audience of 11 thousand viewers at the Golden Gramophone Awards on the stage of the Ice Palace in Saint-Petersburg.

On December 22, 2012 a new song by Vladislav Kurasov «The Whisper of Rains» was performed for the first time on the stage of the largest vocal show of the country - «Х-Factor 3».

Currently preparations for the shooting of the singer’s debut video clip are underway.
