/at 20.00/ DANIEL VEZOJA
Daniel Vezoja is a singer- songwriter from Brežice. He released his first solo album Where the Light Resides in December 2016, earning excellent reviews from the music critics and soon making the top 10 on various domestic records lists in 2016. In January 2017, the concert he was presenting the new record in was broadcast live by Radio Slovenia’s Programme 1. The album was announced by two singles, I Hope the Wind Knows (feat. Joanna Marie) and Suzanna Smiling.
Daniel’s solo career began after the breakup of his former band TrainStation. It was then that he focused even more on his first love – songwriting. He first appeared live on stage at an open mic event in Dublin. There he fell in love with the local music scene and kept returning as often as possible. This brought him in contact with the renowned Irish produced Gavin Glass, who later recorded Daniel’s first album at the Orphan Recording studios. Some of his largest gigs include opening for Lisa Hannigan, Damien Jurado and Lola Marsh at Kino Šiška and opening for Dillon at the A38 in Budapest, as well as appearances at festivals such as Festival Lent, Ment, Indirekt in Belgrade, Ferrara Art in Italy and Canalaphopic in Dublin.
