My music is often a description of my feelings. I like to write about events I have experienced, places where I've been and people or pets from my life. With my music I try to paint a picture to make people feel happiness and sadness but also excitement, fear, anticipation and courage. I play mostly kind, gentle and innocent, classical acoustic music. Many people say that they feel much calmer when they listen to me. I want everyone to feel alive through my music and think of it - as with any other art - as conveying a message and telling a story. When I was having a concert in Italy last year one musician said to me: "Your music is the sound of your parents' soul". That was a very nice thing so hear, a powerful thought that stayed in my mind.

Frano «ivkoviŠ with his parents

I would like to thank to my parents, who are with me every step of the way. They are totally amazing and put a lot of time and energy to cover all of my activities on daily basis. I love them more than anything.
