Album Notes
Citizen of the World

Nenad is a recording artist, composer, and performer who has recorded for Sony, Polygram and many other labels. Two of his albums reached No. 1 in Europe, and to date he has sold over one million records. In addition, he has performed all over the world with a wide range of artists, including Luciano Pavarotti, Bono & The Edge (U2), Brian Eno, Indigo Girls, Richie Havens, Garth Hudson & Rick Danko (The Band), Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead), Martin Sheen, Michael York, John Malkovich, Ellen Burstyn, and many more. He performed at Woodstock '94, and in 1998 he made a compilation album with Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen and Allen Ginsberg. In March 1999, he opened the Miss Universe pageant in Europe with his new song "Miss Universe." Nenad also writes and records music for film and theater. He has scored many features and short films. One such project was "King of Cool," a biopic about the life of Steve McQueen, which premiered on American Movie Classics (AMC), to over 65 million households. Another was "Life beyond Timothy Leary". Subsequently, Nenad scored the Mladen Juran film "Transatlantic", which was the Croatian entry for consideration as Best Foreign Film in the 1999 Academy Awards. Also, he scored a new film directed by Burt Young called "Murder on Mott Street", "The Making and the meaning of We Are Family" film by Danny Schechter in 2002,

"Justice" by Evan Oppenheimer in 2003, "Freedom from Despair" by Brenda Brkusic in 2004. At the present time Nenad is scoring a new film called "Lost Dogs" by talented duo: director Roger Majkowski and producer Michael Fix.

Finally, Nenad is also a record producer with a special interest in
documenting the fascinating but little-known musical traditions of his
homeland, Croatia. His most recent work includes the production of three new a cappella albums: "Fire on the Sea," by Klapa Fortunal; "Following the Cross," a collection of Lenten chants based on 600-year-old Gregorian Chants never previously recorded; and just released "Novaljo, Novaljo," by Klapa Navalia. Nenad's work and his life story have been featured on all the major US TV networks (CBS, ABC, NBC), on CNN, on Sky Channel, and on TV channels in Russia, France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, and many other countries. Press coverage has been similarly widespread, ranging from The New York Times to Billboard, from The Washington Post to Corriere Della Sera, and from The Boston Globe to the New York Daily News. Nenad's most recent solo record is "Thousand Years of Peace" which will be released in 2001. The album was recorded in Nenad's own recording studio, which he also uses for his scoring and production work and which was designed to accommodate anything from a cappella vocals to rock and roll to symphonic orchestras on a location.

He is currently in preproduction for a new solo album, which is due for
release at the end of 2005. Nenad sang in the new recordings of "We Are Family" benefit for the Sept. 11th fund as well as scored the film "The Making and the Meaning of We Are Family". His label just signed a contract for the worldwide promotion and distribution of "The Pharos Cantors" (Glagolitic Chants based on Gregorian Chants). He also recently completed work as a language consultant for the literature and film project for all four of the Harry Potter books.

Through his singing and songwriting Nenad's goal is to spread the message of joy and universal peace.

Love It!
Great songs, inspiring music. It was a birthday gift from my sorority sister in Australia who bought the CD first and loved it so much she had to buy one for meeeeee!
Thank you so much for your wonderful songs Nenad!

Fan from Oz

Correction to previous revIew - rating was meant to be AWESOME!

Fan from Oz

Great CD.
Great collection of songs. The type of songs vary from zany [I Love Losers] to passion for world peace [Can We Go
Higher, A Thousand Years of Peace], to love for someone [The Roads Come Back to You, I Never Told You], and general life observations [Truth Is So Simple, Sculptor], etc.

The guitar sound is very crisp especially in song number 1. Vocals suited the songs - from lively and cheeky, to moving.
