Chicherina was born in 1978 Sverdlovsk, now known as Yekaterinburg. In her childhood, she sang in the children's choir "Goroshinki". She spent some of her time drawing and attempted to enrol into an art institute. For a short time she played the guitar and drums in various bands, then entered a musical school as a pop vocalist.

In 1997, she formed her own band with Azat Mukhammetov, Aleksandr Buriy, and Aleksandr "DrOff" Aleksandrov. On June 1, 1997, Chicherina's first appearance occurred in the club "J-22". The band played at several festivals in western Siberia, and after the cassette with Chicherina's recordings was sent to Mikhail Kozyrev (the producer of Nashe Radio), they were invited to the Nashestvie festival.

Chicherina expressed support of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Luhansk People's Republic in their war to breakaway from Ukraine, and performed their numerous times to express her support.[3][4][5][6][7]
