How is it that you started playing music? I was always in love with music. Im from music and sports family, and from the start I have a good and honest respect for music, thats why my relationship with guitars, keyboards, etc was like destiny. As a kid, I didnt stop ond that, I was written lyrics and became a singer, too. And right now, in this years I have a guitar school too. Well, like I said, destiny. Im in early fortys and thats a great music experience.
Have you had other previous members? Well, I have longtherm musicians who played with me. Studio recordings or live performance. We are good friends, many of them are friends from childhood.

But with band it depends from gigs and clubs and festivals... How often we play live, we often have reherseals to sound better and tight like always.

Energy, frequencies, everything is unusally better with music in your ears, soul, heart... And when you have that opportunity to play and compose music that is a gift.
Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Yes, beside guitar school, I write my own column, Write and produced music for many bands and musicians, Im a composer of my city anthem, and many other projects. I was often a guitar background for many famous Serbian actors in their evenings on many festivals, or poetry writers. There so many things and Im very proud for all of that. And I was a football player too, but that is just a nice history right now.
Are you looking for a label, and what are your thoughts around that? Well, when I have songs on Serbian language I know its hard to find something like that out of Serbia. But I play instrumental music, too, and I hope that someone can recognize something in that.
What made you decide to make this music? My soul... Everything came from the soul.
What are your songs about? All sides of love.
Have you done any covers live? Of course... It depends from club or festival or just some party gig.
