Johnny got into the world of music production at the age of nine as the youngest ever atendee of a music production school in Belgrade. Now, he is graduating high-school for multimedia ITHS and enrolls BIMM Institute (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) in London where he is going to study Music and Sound Production. Some of his productions are very well accepted among the people from the british music industry and his first two commercial works have been played on the national radio. Additionally, he had the chance to work in big private music studios in Belgrade.
Known as the youngest author of a rock album, Johnny is an award-winning composer and songwriter. He started writing songs at the age of 7 and that is when his first song “Nije do love” came to be. In addittion to the album mentioned above, he is also an author of a few singles and a new album is coming soon. Lately, he has been involved in writing music for film and video games.
Even though he is quite young, Johnny already has 10 years of playing experience behind him. Equally good acoustic and electric guitar playing, as well as great knowledge of guitar releated equipment have helped him earn resoect from even the best players in the country. He learned from a lot of highly regarded guitarists absorbing different techniques and styles. Not only did this influence his playing style, but also the way he approaches guitar part arrangments. He is a real vintage guitar aficionado (Gibson being his favourite brand) and his growing collection also contains a couple of guitars that he designed himself. His greatest influence is Jimmy Page. For Johnny, the guitar is not just a basic mean of composing. Guitar is his life companion.
With his band The Churlians (whoose founder and frontman is Johnny), Johnny had more than 50 large concerts across the country, but also a few quite memorable solo guitar appereances (2Cellos guest, concert “Beyond the horizon” Sava Centre…). Some of the concerts that he is most proud of are Belgrade Beer Fest 2019, EXIT Festival 2017, Stadium Tasmajdan 2016, Zaječarska gitarijada 2018, Festival PriČa 2019 and certainly his first independent concert in Belgrade in 2017 where he had legendary musicians as guests. Apart from great guitar playing, his performances are characterised by plenty of energy and love for music.
