Yury then changed the name of his band to Updiverss, and recorded his first album 'I Am Happy With
My Jacket' at the Woodhouse Studio (Hagen, Westfalen) with the producers Siggi Bemm and Dan Diamond.
Updiverss' songs are played by European radio stations (Krass Radio-Germany, Pulse Rated-UK, Radio Netherland, Belarus Radio Stations). Their song "Treasure" peaked at
number one in the top 50 of Midnight Special Blues Radio (Paris, 2009). The band took part in many festivals, for example Linz fest (Austria, 2005) and

In May 2012, Liamkins musicians teeamed up with Michael Ponkratyev (drums) and the producers,
Andrey Sinyaev and Timur Dolotkazin at MMS Records to create their album "Reason Softly Speaks Or Just Make It Louder".
"Yury (George) Lyamkin is an amazing artist and songwriter. His addition to our
roster is one that is irreplaceable. Yury's songs are melodic and detailed. If
Paul McCartney had somehow been born in Russia instead of the UK...he would have
ended up being Yury Liamkin. Both his acoustic singer/songwriter songs and his
rockers heavily reflect influence by The Beatles, in particular, Paul McCartney
in both his Beatles and his Wings tenure and solo career as well. He is nothing
short of honest and brilliant as a songwriter and a performer.
As a solo artist, his songs scream movie and television
adaptation! Melodic, reflective, emotional compositions that capture the
heartstrings of the listener. What a talent! I am sure you will agree!"
