Nenad Bach's Video Press Kit part 1
A native of Croatia, a naturalized New Yorker and a citizen of the world, Nenad Bach is a recording artist, composer, and performer who has recorded for Sony, Universal, Decca, 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 and The Edge (U2), Brian Eno, Indigo Girls, Richie Havens, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko (The Band), Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead), and many more. He performed at Woodstock 1994, and in 1998 he made a compilation album with Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, and Allen Ginsberg.
Nenad has released two American albums under his own name: Greatest Hits and A Thousand Years of Peace. His new album, which has long been awaited by his many fans from all over the world, is currently in the recording stage and will be released in 2010, preceded by a “live in the studio” EP entitled All I Want Is Freedom. Several of the songs on the album will feature the sounds of his homeland by incorporating Croatian klapa music (a unique and beautiful style of a cappella singing).
In addition to his own records, Nenad has scored many features and short films, including King of Cool (a biopic about Steve McQueen) and the Mladen Juran film Transatlantic, which was the Croatian entry for Best Foreign Film at the 1999 Academy Awards. He is also a record producer; his most recent work includes the recording of four SACDs of klapa music, which were the basis of one of the highest-rated shows on the long-running NPR radio program “Millennium of Music.”
Nenad’s work and his life story have been featured on all the major US television 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. He was interviewed by Ed Bradley for the CBS News magazine “Street Stories,” in a segment that was seen by 20 million viewers. 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. Currently, Home Team Productions is making a feature documentary about Nenad’s life.
Through his singing and songwriting, Nenad’s goal is to spread the message of joy and universal peace.
