I was born and raised in Bosnia, a small country on the Balkan peninsula, that experienced the worst act of genocide in Europe since the Holocaust. I was a refugee for a good part of my life and I’ve spent more time away from my family than I did with them. You can say my whole life has been one big lesson. Although I am grateful for everything I’ve learned, I wouldn’t wish my life upon my worst enemy. The scars that I carry inside are my guiding light in knowing how bad life can get and finding gratitude in the life I have today.
Gratitude, love and faith have brought me to thousands of people and countless stages where I’ve shared my stories and music. I have performed in front of 20,000+ people on 100+ stages across the nation leaving behind a trail of inspiration, motivation and human connection. I combine story telling with live music to inspire and entertain audiences. Many have told me that I have this innate ability to transform and connect with audiences through personal stories of adversity and overcoming external and internal obstacles. Likewise they said all of that happens in a triumphant musical explosion of sound which is what brings them back to my events.
