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!"
