He doesn’t clichés at all. With conventions less and less. Preconceived categories and styles He prefers to be elusive. Self-definition commuter. Between folk song and pop, chanson and jazz, between languages and dialects, between bluesy melancholy and deep joy of life. His music is like that, too.

Active as a composer, arranger, lyricist and of course musician for many different formations. Guitar(s), tamburica, vocals. Especially with the Burgenland Croatian group PAX and his former band HEIGEIGN. With them in pubs just as at home, as at major festivals. Highlights: Porgy&Bess, Glatt&Verkehrt, WorldMusicFestival Wr. Neustadt, WienKultur and so on. Then creative time out. Taking a breath. Creative refueling. Now embarked on their own musical paths. 2022 Album “tiramtiro!”. Digital and analog. The latter in the recording studio with analog grandmaster Thomas Pronai.

Technically colorful.
