Vanja is a solo instrumental artist. He was born in Bosnia and he grew up in Switzerland. Inspired by metal and rock guitarists Vanja began with the guitar playing at the age of 16. He was teaching guitar from 2005 on for about three years. Later in 2008 he began to work on his first album Vision that was released in 2010. Vanja's second album the Awakening was released in 2013. It's the second soundtrack of Vanja's journey through life and it was composed between 2010 and 2012. Both albums are modern instrumental guitar music, mostly in the rock genre with different influences. The main and the catchiest compositions are best described as modern heavy rock. Every piece is different and full of catchy riffs and melodies. Vanja’s music is for sure not typical instrumental rock because his compositions are driven by emotion and shredding is not often to hear. Vanja is also featured on the Guitar Wizards Compilations (Versailles Records USA) with George Lynch, Jake E. Lee, Chris Poland and Others.
